Orchestra Tries Playing After Eating World’s Hottest Chili Pepper (Video)
Classical music is one of the last remaining bastions of refinement that people can turn to when they want to feel superior to everyone else, and based on the number of times my roommate has kept me up by practicing the violin for hours on end, nobody takes things more seriously than the people who play it.
However, that doesn’t mean they’re not allowed to have a little bit of fun every once in a while, which is why the Danish National Chamber Orchestra decided to mix things up by having every musician eat an incredibly hot chili pepper while performing “Tango Jalousie.”
As much as I would have loved to watch an absolute train wreck unfold on stage, members managed to keep their composure (to a certain extent).
For a second, I thought we were going to lose one of the bassoon players, but he managed to pull through and contribute to a surprisingly enjoyable performance.
