Middle-aged men have been warned against dancing Gangnam Style after a father of three collapsed and died while copying the moves from the hit video by Psy.
46 Eamonn Kilbride collapsed with chest pains at his office Christmas party in Blackburn, UK, last weekend after performing the dance moves from the video.
Speaking to the Daily Telegraph newspaper, Professor Bernard Keavney
, who is a consultant cardiologist at Newcastle University, has warned older men not to "stray outside your comfort zone
" at Christmas parties this year. "The chance that you'll come to grief is very small. But as with any form of untypical exercise... be somewhat measured. Let the lady dance around you
," he added.
President Barack Obama claimed, back in November, that he can dance Gangnam Style, although he speculated that his inauguration ball was not the appropriate time to bring the moves out:
"I just saw that video for the first time... I think I can do that move. I'm not sure that the inauguration ball is the appropriate time to break that out. Maybe do it privately for Michelle."
