GANGNAM STYLE DANCE OFF ESCALATES INTO GANG SHOOTOUT IN BANGKOK
The Gangnam Style dance has inspired a host of parodies, the song has hit the top of the charts in South Korea, Malaysia, Finland and Latvia, and the YouTube video has accumulated more than 227 million views.
Now, according to Thai media, Gangnam Style, by the K-pop star Psy (Sy), has inspired a show of rivalry between two Bangkok gangs, who are said to have had a dance-off before engaging in a gun battle.
According to reports, the two gangs were dining in the same restaurant when "the younger members of both groups danced provocatively at each other in the manner of top hit Gangnam Style". The dance-off escalated into an argument and, eventually, a gun attack in which one of the gangs fired at least 50 bullets from a carbine and an 11mm gun.
Police says no one was injured in the incident, however the two gangs had a history of confrontation and would face arrest warrants.
