Dancing “Gangnam Style” kills British man

A man in the United Kingdom has died after dancing to Korean pop singer Psy's hit "Gangnam Style," according to The Sun.

Eamonn Kilbride collapsed on Saturday after imitating Psy's signature horse-riding moves, according to the report. Kilbride was a father of three from Blackburn, Lancashire.

His wife, Julie tried to revive him but he was declared dead on the way to the hospital. She told the media he was a loving husband who liked to dance.

"We were having a fantastic time at the Christmas party and Eamonn had just finished dancing to Gangnam style," she reportedly said.

Then Kilbride complained of pain and suffered a fatal heart attack.

The tragedy prompted a British cardiologist to issue a warning in the Independent that older men should be careful not to over-exert themselves during holiday festivities.

"As with any form of untypical exercise ... be somewhat measured," he told the newspaper.

A stage collapse in Beijing caused injury during another dance performance to Gangnam Style. A YouTube video shows students at Peking University dancing and jumping around before the stage falls under the pressure of the large crowd.

Those who are celebrating Psy's imminent downfall based on the conclusion that a side effect of his music is death should probably hold off on the cheers.

Even if everyone, everywhere stops playing Gangnam Style, it will only pave the way for his inevitable successor, the £1 Fish Man:

Cue more ridiculous dance moves and parodies by politicians.
