Team USA made sure to participate in a proper South Korean custom when making their entrance at Friday's Olympic opening ceremony in Pyeongchang.

They danced to "Gangnam Style."

The inescapable 2012 hit by South Korean star Psy began playing over the loudspeakers as the U.S. Olympic team walked out during the parade of nations.

It couldn't help but lead to spontaneous celebration among the 244 American athletes who make up the largest delegation from one country in Winter Olympics history.

Now that six years have passed since "Gangnam Style" could be found playing everywhere on earth in every waking moment, Olympic fans seem ready to embrace it again.

The athletes themselves also made sure to remember the moment.

They were part of an opening ceremony that included an appearance by Vice President Mike Pence, the return of the shirtless Tongan flag-bearer, and the Bermuda contingent wearing shorts in the frigid temperatures.
