Gangs Try To Solve Problems With Dance-Off, Wind Up In Gunfight

As fun as dance-offs can be, and despite what movies like “West Side Story” may insist, they’re really not an effective way to try and mediate problems between two criminal organizations. Two Thai gangs found this out the hard way when a Gangnam Style dance contest turned into a shoot-out.

Two groups of teenagers in Bangkok were partying at an entertainment complex and got into a dance-off that quickly turned into an overblown contest, with one group leaving in a huff. And then returning a few hours later with guns.

The good news is that despite 50 rounds fired, the only thing hurt at the end was some teenager’s pride: The bullets simply damaged nearby cars and buildings. The police have rounded up the kids involved and presumably will have plenty of time to work on their dancing skills in prison.
