It seems "Gangnam Style," the dance video created by Korean rapper Psy sending the world into shockwaves of fandom, has even made its way to the White House.
Just last month, rapper Psy was seen teaching United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon how to do the dance while at the UN headquarters in New York.
"I'm a bit jealous," Ban said of the nearly billion views Psy received on YouTube. "Until two days ago someone told me I am the most famous Korean in the world. Now I have to relinquish. I have no regrets," Ban said.
Now, newly re-elected President Barack Obama is talking about the dance craze.
The Associated Press reported that on Tuesday, Obama was asked by radio station WZID-FM in New Hampshire whether or not he would do the "Gangnam Style" dance.
"I just saw that video for the first time," Obama 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 concluded, "do it privately for Michelle."
