For some odd reason, extremely cold temperatures are making people take off their clothes this winter. The latest example of this strange phenomenon occurred yesterday when China’s national pole-dancing team made their annual visit to Beiji village.
Located in Heilongjiang’s Mohe county, Beiji is China’s northernmost village and therefore can get quite chilly. This year, pole dancers performed their routines with the mercury dropping down to minus 33 degrees Celsius.
Still, that’s practically a tropical vacation compared to last year when they battled temperatures of 50 degrees centigrade below zero.
Members of the national pole dancing team have been visiting the freezing village each year since 2012. In doing so, they seem to have inspired other pole dancers. Last week, a group of pole dancers put on a performance in Jilin for an ice and snow festival with the temperature at minus 16 degrees Celsius.
Hot or cold?
