“Gangnam Style” Makes It To The UN

Could the ‘Invisible Horse Dance’ be the key to world peace? United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-moon seems to think so.

PSY visited the UN General Assembly in New York today to give Ban, a fellow South Korean, tips on how to perform his now-infamous dance routine.

Ban joked that PSY has now surpassed him as the most famous South Korean in the world while PSY returned the compliment.

“This is [a] much more better feeling than when I did No. 2 on Billboard.”

Ban continued, “We have tough negotiations in the United Nations. I was thinking of playing ‘Gangnam Style’ so that everybody would stop and dance. Maybe you can bring UN style?”

It seems PSY isn’t only taking over the UN. “Gangnam Style” is now set to a synchronized Halloween Light show in Leesburg, Virginia. The Edwards Light Show used over 8,500 lights and roughly 250 channels of computer animation to create this mashup of light and sound.
