WASHINGTON, D.C. (WJLA) - The latest music video taking the Internet by storm isn't by a rock star, or isn't yet another version of someone singing "Let It Go" from Disney's Frozen - it's actually from D.C.'s own Smithsonian National Zoo.

A group of brand-new Asian small-clawed otters, which are new arrivals to the Zoo, can be seen in an adorable new video playing a keyboard together. The video is already fast approaching 200,000 views since debuting on YouTube on Tuesday.

According to the Zoo's website, since the otters spend most of their foraging for food - when they're not starring in music videos, that is - the otters are each named after food. The family of 11 otters consists of Chowder, Clementine, Pork Chop, Pickles, Saffron, Olive, Peaches, Turnip, Radish, Rutabega, and just one who answers to a more traditional name, Kevin.
