Students in the throes of Gangnam Style on Sunday morning had their dance abruptly halted when the one-meter platform underneath them collapsed. The mostly international students were performing in front of a sizable audience as part of the Peking University International Cultural Festival. The festivities had just started when the accident happened, according to Beijing News, though there were no serious injuries. They’ll be up and riding again in no time — we can only hope better than Ai Weiwei. Youku video for those in China after the jump, plus a photo and a postscript.
POSTSCRIPT: In other parts of China, here are 3,700 people dancing the Gangnam Style at Nanjing Hehai University. It took a while, but Gangnam has, officially, taken over this country.
