"Gangnam Style" Fever Reaches North Korea, For Real!

North Korea and South Korea have been divided since World War II. But even these opposing nations — which are technically still at war, since they never signed a formal peace treaty — can unite over one thing: Their love of “Gangnam Style.”

Well, sort of. CNN writes that a North Korean government website now features a video that pokes fun at South Korean presidential candidate Park Geun-hye. The clip begins with an image of Park’s face Photoshopped onto the body of a figure doing rapper Psy’s signature horse-riding dance. The picture is followed by a mocking photo montage set to a jaunty big band tune. It’s unembeddable, but you can watch the goods here.

We don’t know who posted the video, or when it found its way online. But either way, it’s kind of cool to see Psy’s neighbors to the north finding inspiration in his goofy smash hit. Who knew that invisible pony had galloped all the way across the 38th Parallel?
