Just last month, a pelvis-thrusting Deadpool got in on the “Gangnam Style” craze, encouraging passersby to dance with him to Psy’s inescapable (and undeniably catchy) tune.

And if you’re unsure just what “Gangnam Style” is, you can check out the similarly hilarious original video to the international sensation by South Korean rapper PSY. If neither of those videos brightens your day, then probably nothing will. (Did I mention Bane makes a cameo appearance alongside Deadpool?)
