While South Korean pop star Psy shows the world his new "horse-riding" dance, Thai teens used it in a West Side Story-style standoff that escalated into a gunfight, the Guardian reports. Members of two gangs were eating at the same restaurant in Bangkok when younger gang-bangers began dancing Gangnam-style to provoke the other side. And provoke they did: In the ensuing battle, one gang blasted 50 rounds from an 11mm-gun and a carbine.
Miraculously, no one was hurt, but the bad news is that such gang violence is old news in Thailand. A good deal of it happens in vocational colleges and secondary schools, where students use machetes, knives, guns, and sometimes homemade grenades to protect their school's honor. Police logged 1,000 student-rivalry cases in the first half of 2012, and say several students have either died or been injured up to May of this year.
