Barack Obama's 'Gangnam Style': Yes I Can Do That Dance


President Barack Obama was finally asked about PSY's "Gangnam Style" this morning, disclosing in a radio interview with WZID-FM in New Hampshire that he's only recently caught wind of the craze.

"I just saw that video for the first time… I think I can do that move," he said of the gallop dance that has helped make the South Korean rapper into a household name and a major force on the Billboard charts.

Now, whether Obama plans on trotting around if he wins reelection is another matter. "I'm not sure that the inauguration ball is the appropriate time to break that out," he acknowledged.

"Maybe do it privately for Michelle," he concluded.

Since being uploaded to YouTube in mid-July, the splashy, tongue-in-cheek video for "Gangnam Style" has racked up a staggering 659,970,000 views. It remains the most popular video on YouTube. The song has spent the last six weeks at No. 2 on the Billboard 200 and three weeks at No. 1 on Digital Songs.

It was a lot closer than I thought it would be. I am SHOCKED at America for throwing that many votes towards Romney. Sigh.

Obama is such a flawless oppa! Not American, but the US Elections were followed intensely in my country - so I felt so happy when I heard he won! Almost made me feel a little bit American myself ~
