Classically-trained musicians perform after eating the world's hottest peppers because... well, why not?
Denmark’s perhaps most untraditional ‘celebrity’ is getting a turn in the international spotlight. 
 
Claus Pilgaard, who has managed to become famous by eating hot chilli peppers, took his hot and spicy passion to the Danish National Chamber Orchestra, which is being shut down after 75 years due to budget cuts at DR.
 
'Chili Klaus' brought Carolina Reapers, Trinidad Scorpion Moruga Blend (TSMB) and Ghost Peppers for a “little piece of classical music and a little bit of spicy food”. 
 
The video of the burning hot performance has been picked up by websites including BuzzFeed, the Huffington Post and The Mirror, garnering nearly one million views. 
 
See the orchestra’s attempt to play Jacob Gade’s Tango Jalouise after consuming spicy peppers below. Warning: it involves tears and near vomiting.
