As classical music videos go, making sure everyone looks their best while being doused with water from filled balloons is probably not a primary concern. But that's how the latest promotional clip by the Diderot String Quartet plays out.
And we can't stop watching.
Over the course of 4 minutes and 37 seconds, members of the quartet are shown before, during and after being continually pummeled with water balloons. Take a look.
The super-slow-motion footage adds to the artsiness of the proceedings. It helps, too, that the quartet's masterful recording of Mozart's Dissonance Quartet serves as the soundtrack.
If you're curious, here's what the highly photogenic members of the quartet — violinists Adriane Post and Johanna Novom, violist Kyle Miller and cellist Paul Dwyer — look like in their more typical classical trappings.
