Gangnam Style has taken over the Internet. Everywhere you look, another video pops up. Now, you can add UC Davis to the long list.
This video was added to YouTube by user Stevenson Chao on September25, in the heat of Gangnam Style mania. The now-viral dance begins at the 20-second mark and continues until the end.
It has been shared on the Internet by numerous celebrities including T-Pain, Katy Perry, Britney Spears, and Tom Cruise, covered by others such as Nelly Furtado and Maroon 5, and has also been featured in international media outlets such as The Wall Street Journal, the Financial Times, and CNN International.
By early September, "Gangnam Style" flash mobs started to appear in various cities of the world, rumored to start from the momentum gathered by Daniel Kandi playing it at his August Korean gigs, and "Gangnam Style" has become the source of parodies and reaction videos by The Oregon Duck, midshipmen from the United States Naval Academy, staff of the Houston Independent School District, and the North Korean government. Psy has brought the "Gangnam Style" dance to various locations including The Today Show, Saturday Night Live, Dodger Stadium, The Ellen DeGeneres Show, and Samsung commercials.
