If you are looking for a tiny diversion from the problems of the day, look no further! In this popular viral video, the Ross Sisters perfom a crazy contortion dance act. It is weird and wonderful. After the “Solid Potatoe Salad” song and you are in for a treat!

According to Wikipedia: “The Ross Sisters were a trio of female sibling dancers consisting of Aggie Ross, Elmira Ross, and Maggie Ross (whose real names were Veda Victoria, Dixie Jewel and Betsy Ann Ross). The Ross Sisters performed as a 3-part harmony trio wherein they also danced and did acrobatics and contortionism. Their public attention peaked during the 1940s, during which they were featured prominently in the film Broadway Rhythm. This footage has since gained popularity on YouTube. This clip also appears in the compilation film That’s Entertainment! III (1994).”
