Stuck in traffic? Dance it out!

This week, a video of a bunch of women stuck in a traffic jam in China went viral. The video, posted Monday, shows a huge backlog of cars stuck in the smog, a result of heavy air pollution in the area. When it became clear that they weren't going to be moving anytime soon, the women jumped out of their cars and began to dance to a Cantonese pop song. How awesome is that? Dance has the power to turn a maddening situation into something joyful. However, we do not recommend trying this on the 405 in Los Angeles!!!
