Surprise for aficionados of South Park. To celebrate the program’s 25th anniversary, the creators of the legendary animated series have released a video in which an orchestra covers one of the show’s most iconic songs.
Shared on Twitter this Wednesday, the video has already garnered more than 250,000 views. We see thirty orchestral musicians and four leading Broadway singers cover the title “Kyle’s Mom’s a Bitch” (“Kyle’s mother is a bitch”), reports the HuffPost. A very classy musical assembly for a very vulgar song.

A new season coming soon
The song is performed by Cartman in the first season of South Park, broadcast in 1997. Accusing Kyle’s mother of having ruined Christmas, the obnoxious little character insults her, calling her a “bitch” 56 times during the song, which has become cult. In addition, the same orchestra also covered “Gay Fish”, a parody of the title “Heartless” by Kanye West.
