Over the weekend, the New Zealand All Blacks rugby team beat England, 26-7, and won the Hong Kong Sevens Tournament. But really, we all won. Because they celebrated by dancing.

Shirtless.

In the rain.

Praise!

The dance is the Haka, a traditional dance of the native New Zealand Māori people, adopted by the team as a sort of "war chant" before their rugby matches. Intimidating? Surely. Sexy? Oh, yes.

Watch their dance below, and curse whoever filmed this and didn't use an HD camera:

Which is to say: Beyoncé approves!
