Albeit a couple years behind the global PSY trend, researchers at Oxford University have discovered that dancing to the singer's viral hit "Gangnam Style" has been shown to help manage pain - or at least increase the average person's threshold for it.
Allegedly, you, too, can be as immortal as Deadpool.
So how did they get to this conclusion?
According to a report released in science publication Biology Letters earlier this week, a team of researchers studied nearly 300 Brazilian students that were taught a synchronized dance and given the option to perform individually or in groups. The scientists then performed pressure tests to measure their pain levels both before and after their routines.
Lead researcher Bronwyn Tarr found that group dancing with synchronized movements - a la "Gangnam Style" - helps to produce endorphins much faster than doing a solo routine.
"If you exert yourself or synchronize your movements, you can arrive at an elevated pain threshold. If you do both, the effect is additive."
But don't worry, Tarr also states that you don't have to participate in a day-long flash mob to reap the benefits of this phenomenon. Even a small amount of synchronized dancing can be enough!
"It could be that if you just sync for a moment at your Christmas party that is enough. You don't have to be doing the Macarena for hours on end to establish the effect."
(Although, I can't lie - a 'Macarena' marathon sounds pretty fun!)
So will you be teaching your friends a synchronized dance routine any time soon?
I hope you're all practicing your horse dance!
