Attention All Gangnam Stylers!

So by this point, everyone has heard of the phenomenon known as "Gangnam Style", by PSY. If not, I highly recommend you watch this video!


To explain, it's a sort of "cowboy dance", but it's wildly popular. Just like the Macarena was in the 90's and the Rick Roll a few years ago. Well, the new thing has arrived, and seeing as though this will be my first PAX, I want it to be a really memorable one. So I want to gather my fellow pelvic thrusters and lasso twirlers together into a huge video montage! (If there's any Let's Players out there, you are HIGHLY encouraged!) Of course, you'll need to know that iconic dance, so to do so, I've got a few links to help you on your way.

PSY's tutorial

Another tutorial

It's really not that hard to do, and I think it could be really fun, especially if we can get more people involved!

Now, as far as rules and regulations, we'll have to find out what some hotel's policies are, and/or the convention center. We have to be mindful of other people attending PAX being sure not to disrupt their experience. Of course, that shouldn't stop you from encouraging people to join in. Just have respect, and try to think before you do something stupid. (And by that I mean getting kicked out of the con, no one wants that.)

As far as the shots are concerned, we'd like to try to match the music video fairly closely, (For the rap parts we can have random shots aka sidling across the floor)
But if any of you have any good ideas for shots or would like to film any individual section, let me know! We're gonna need everybody's help to make this happen, but if we do...no...WHEN we do, it's gonna be remembered for a long, long time! (Or at least until the fad dies later next year. :p)

    That's pretty cool, but I'm thinking a bit more advanced than just a 'flash mob'.
    Though those are always fun!

    Who's to say we can't make it better?

    OK, I'm so gonna regret this, because this would be so unlike me, BUT, I friggin love that song!!!!!!!! I would possibly be up for this but I would need the practice, hehe. I am assuming this would be like a Gangnam Style flash mob type of thing?

    This could be amazing if pulled off correctly.

    This was at Pax Prime 2012


    It was a cosplay contest that kind of turned into a Gangnam Style dancing contest. Prizes were awarded.

    Now it seems like the Harlem Shake becomes a more likely possibility.
