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."
