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.
