A video of Chicago-based burlesque performer Michelle L’Amour is having a well-deserved viral moment right now — because she’s twerking the shit out of some classical music. And it’s genius.

The performance proves that sometimes it’s the simplest on-stage concepts that are the most successful: L’Amour makes a grand entrance in a cropped tuxedo jacket, fishnet stockings and a skimpy little bowtie thong, sits down on a comfy piano chair and twerks her way through a recording Beethoven’s “Fifth Symphony.” It’s hypnotic, and it makes me feel a lot better about what happens when I’m on the treadmill at the gym — turns out I’ve been recreating orchestral music with my ass cheeks too. I just didn’t know I was that highbrow.
