Do you know CPR or first aid? After watching this video, you might understand why more Germans will want to.

A non-profit group is hoping to get the German public interested in first aid, and has released a video that aims to make saving lives sexy.

Arbeiter-Samariter-Bund posted the video to Facebook last week, featuring scantily clad women - and a few men.

They perform life-saving techniques to the beat of popular tunes.

The organisation says that in Germany "relatively few people provide first aid" and to remedy this situation, the "first aid ladies" are promoting life-saving messages.

Unsurprisingly, the highly polished video has garnered some criticism and a very large number of views - more than 1.6 million and growing rapidly. 

First Aid Ladies zeigen, wie sexy Erste Hilfe sein kann

In Deutschland leisten vergleichsweise wenige Menschen Erste Hilfe. Dem wollen wir abhelfen und haben einen ganz neuen Weg gewählt, um lebensrettende Botschaften möglichst weit zu verbreiten. Die "First Aid Ladies" zeigen euch, wie ihr im Fall der Fälle helfen könnt. Schaut rein!
