Going Gangnam

There are viral videos and then there is the Gangnam Style video! It is a K-pop single by Korean musician PSY. The video is a satire on the lavish lifestyles in Seoul’s posh Gangnam district

*Keep your legs slightly apart and bent at the knee, like you’ve mounted a horse

*Maintain a rider’s swagger. Lift your right leg. Don’t forget to lift the imaginary horse’s reins

*Drop the reins and bring your right foot to the floor. Don’t be brash. Do it with ‘some’ style, please

*Time for your left leg now! Lift it and the reins too. You’re riding a horse here, remember?

*Bring your foot down and the reins too. Don’t forget your swagger. Never forget the swagger

*Now lift your right leg again. Keep at the swagger, please! Get jiggy with it

*Bring the reins and your foot down (yet again). Oops! We forgot to add the flashy sunglasses

*Repeat steps six and seven. Get in the groove. This is the Gangnam style, after all!

*Hey! You have to sing along too! “Oo... sexy lady... op op op op, Oppan Gangnam style!” Thank us online!
