Viral Vixens: German Quartet Salut Salon Dominate YouTube Channels with Deliciously Humorous, Idiosyncratic Performance

For a good time, call the new German quartet Salut Salon.

The group of women, trending on the social mediascapes, infuse a refreshing new blend of music, acrobatics and, believe it or not, some slapstick humor.

Classical comedy isn't anything new, and these gals are on par with the stylings of 2Cellos, another humorous duo.

And the group features some choice tunes, running from Igudesman and Joo, Mnozil Brass, P.D.Q. Bach and, of course, Victor Borge.

The viral age of video viewership brings anything worth viewing (eh, questionable) to the frontlines of mainstream media. Salut Salon's mash-up of Vivaldi, Mozart, Kurt Weill and the Mission Impossible theme has yielded some two million YouTube hits.

So, with that in mind, the wonderful ladies at Salon probably deserve the success they've gotten. And with a nod to NPR, here's the video for your delight.
