Obama asked about ‘Gangnam Style’

The Sideshow

Sure, President Barack Obama is a skilled orator, a best-selling writer and a Nobel Peace Prize winner. But what about his Gangnam-style dance moves?

The commander in chief was grilled about his take on the South Korean rapper Psy's massively popular music video, "Gangnam Style," which became the most-liked video on YouTube. The video features the star doing his trademark move, the horse dance.

According to the Associated Press, Obama told the New Hampshire radio station WZID-FM, "I just saw that video for the first time." He said, "I think I can do that move. But I'm not sure that the inauguration ball is the appropriate time to break that out."

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

The video has spawned some very public parodies across the Web, including ones from the U.S. Naval Academy and "Saturday Night Live." And this one from "Late Show With David Letterman" pasted former Gov. Mitt Romney's head on a Gangnam dancer.
