Hathos Alert

I saw this video this afternoon and thought of the Dish. It’s basically a commercial for a classical music festival, B-Classic – they created a “Classical Comeback” video with a Korean dance team in skimpy costumes doing sexy moves to an excerpt from Dvorak’s “New World” Symphony.  The caption on YouTube says the video “gives classical music the same recognition as pop and rock music by combining the timeless emotion of classical music with the visual talent of a contemporary director.”

Just about made my head explode, it was so weird, but oddly hathetic as well.
