Watching the globally viral ‘Gangnam Style’ video too many times may make you want to shoot yourself — and now Psy‘s claim to fame is actually inciting some people to shoot each other.

The Guardian reports that Psy’s ‘Gangnam Style,’ which celebrates being cheesy and classy, inspired behavior that was anything but between two Thailand gangs. Two rival gangs actually engaged in a ‘West Side Story’ style dance battle to ‘Gangnam Style’ before escalating to a verbal and physical scuffle and finally culminating in a vicious shootout. One gang member alone is said to have fired 50 (that’s 5-0) shots from a carbine and an 11mm. gun!

Thankfully, no one was harmed in the shooting, and Bangkok officials say that the parties involved have a history of violence and were slapped with arrest warrants, making the streets safer for anyone else who feels like dancing to the surprising K-Pop smash.

Psy has danced ‘Gangnam Style’ with everyone from the Wanted to Britney Spears, but something tells us he won’t be getting down gangster style anytime soon.

Listen to Psy + Carly Rae Jepsen's Mashup!
