    I don't think they should be blaming this particular dance. Any physical activity would presumably have had similar effect on this guy.
    Just my opinion

    I tried to do this dance (while no one was watching, of course) and omgoodness I'm glad that I didn't have a heart attack. It's not as easy as it looks.
