This Orchestra Is Playing While Nomming on Uber-Hot Chilies

Playing classical music at a professional level is very demanding. Of course, humans can multi-task at anything if they’re experienced enough, so Chili Klaus devised a devious tasting. He’s usually known for tasting chilies and giving notes on them himself, but this time he’s conducting the Danish National Chamber Orchestra while they eat “the worlds [sic] hottest chili peppers.” The Carolina Reaper is the hottest chili at 2.2 Million Scoville units, which is more than four times hotter than the hottest habañero variant, and about 440 times hotter than a middle of the road jalapeño.

Despite their predicament, the orchestra managed to play very, very admirably. Most people who take up an instrument never sound that good when they are 100% focused, whereas these Danes were clearly in a lot of pain.

Sadly, the Danish National Chamber Orchestra is going to be abolished at the end of the year for reasons that I can’t ascertain with certainty, on account of my not speaking Danish. From what I gathered, it’s a case of money mismanagement, and a great many people are very upset about this. I wish these musicians all the best.
