King Diamond gets a midget burlesque tribute (NSFW)

Posted by on February 24, 2015

Every now and then, something happens on social media that you see too much of not to react to. Browsing Facebook in the past day or so, we saw that a lot of our metal friends had a video of a King Diamond burlesque show. It being work, it was something we marked in the back of our minds to check out later. It popped up so much that we finally watched it, and wow. Viva La Muerte, the Pint Size Pepper is, as you might guess, a little person. However, she’s a little person that likes King Diamond enough to have performed an amazingly accurate routine to King’s “No Presents for Christmas.” It involves Viva in full-on King makeup, rocking out with the upside-down bone cross, and unwrapping presents. Sexy? Your mileage may vary, but her confidence is off the charts. Well done? Absolutely.

Viva is the producer of Hot and Heavy Burlesque, which in the past has presented a burlesque tribute to Pink Floyd’s The Wall. This past Christmas, they presented the King Diamond show, and she’s also done an Iron Maiden set in the past as well. Not only is this extremely entertaining, it beats the hell out of Mini-KISS. It’s more or less SFW, but you’re watching a burlesque routine, so keep that in mind.

If you’re in Chicago, where Viva is from, the next even Hot and Heavy is doing, Metal Burlesque and Trivia Night will feature music from Slayer, Suicidal Tendencies, Rammstein, Dio, Cradle of Filth, Iron Maiden, Metallica, Carnivore and Danzig, among others. So what we’re saying is that if you’re in Chicago and don’t go to this, you’re doing it wrong.
