Typhoon Hagibis inflicted some real damage when it made landfall. As of this article, it has claimed four lives, and rescue efforts are still ongoing.

Yet some Japanese dealt with what is being called the "worst storm in 60 years" in the quirkiest ways possible.

Push-ups and lip syncs

Understandably, much of Japan was rather subdued on Saturday (Oct. 12), with even perpetually bustling locations like the Shibuya crosswalk eerily empty.

Which one man took as a scenic change in his daily 100 push-ups.

The two safety officials looking on quizzically are a nice touch as well.

Not to be outdone, some other guy decided that the typhoon was the perfect opportunity to play in a swing by himself, which if you think about it, is kinda true.

Others saw it as more of a chance for group activities.

While others danced the night away.

Perhaps the most perplexing trend to emerge, though, was this dance-themed one being carried out in the sloshing rain.

For context, this is the song Hot Limit, by TM Revolution.

Here are some of the people dancing while the typhoon was either making landfall or right before it.

And arguably the first dance video a day before the typhoon made landfall.

Also here's an adorable rat seeking shelter in a desolate Shibuya station.
