Brazilian Ronaldo Dances Gangnam Style for Weight Loss Program (Video)

Michael CummingsWorld Football Lead WriterNovember 21, 2012

Wait, didn't "Gangnam Style" go out of style a few weeks ago? Doesn't matter. Nobody tell Ronaldo.

That's the real Ronaldo, mind you. We're talking about the first Ronaldo here, the Brazilian Ronaldo, the fat Ronaldo, the guy who won the 2002 World Cup solely by means of his powers of dopey hair and toothy grin.

That Ronaldo, it seems, is just getting on the "Gangnam Style" bandwagon. We thought that ride had passed, but apparently we thought wrong.

As part of his latest weight-loss program, Ronaldo is dancing to the international sensation everybody used to love but now hates: "Gangnam Style."

In case you forgot or thought Cristiano was the only Ronaldo around, here's what the real Ronaldo was formerly capable of on the pitch. We're not saying the mighty have fallen, but all we're saying is that Neymar had better take notice and start counting calories.

According to 101 Great Goals, the dancing is part of the TV show "Medida Certa Ronaldo Fenomeno." We see no reason to argue with that. At least Ronaldo gets to enjoy the scenery while during this whole episode.

So there you have it. Ronaldo, the former Brazil, Barcelona, AC Milan, Inter Milan and PSV Eindhoven great, is now doing the "Gangnam Style" dance to lose weight.

The video appears above. It's our Set Piece Video of the Day for this Wednesday before Thanksgiving. Enjoy, and after you've stuffed yourself with turkey tomorrow, remember what the real Ronaldo would do.
