'Gangnam Style' Flash Mob Hits New York (Video)
Filmed by Korean TV, the gathering celebrated the PSY hit in Washington Square Park.
Here’s further proof that “Gangnam Style” is contagious.
A flash mob celebrating the PSY song hit New York’s Washington Square Park Sunday in an event organized via Facebook by the group I LOVE DANCE. The semi-impromptu gathering was filmed by Korean broadcaster KBS for a documentary on the popularity of South Korean culture abroad, said the flash mob’s organizers.
The group, which celebrates Korean dance, offered a primer on how to properly ride an invisible horse, PSY style.
Meanwhile, the popularity of “Gangnam Style” continues to endure. The K-pop hit took the No. 1 digital download spot on the Billboard charts this week, amassing 301,000 downloads, 60 percent more than the previous week. On Friday, the video became the most "liked" YouTube video ever.
And Justin Beiber, who shares manager Scooter Braun with PSY, is apparently a fan of the song’s dance. The two may have a collaboration in the works down the road, PSY told Billboard this week.
