Gangnam–NASA Johnson Style!

Are you tired of Psy’s Gangnam video on YouTube yet? No? Then this video that was the brainchild of interns at NASA’s Johnson Space Center is for you. Yes, you’d be happy never to hear of or see Psy again? Don’t give up quite yet….

This is a video that shows a wide variety of NASA activities in a fun and accessible way–“gangnam style.” Some love it; some NASA veterans hate it and think the world as they know it is coming to an end. Perhaps it is. Perhaps a little humor is a good thing.

Personally, I enjoy it. It’s fun, it’s interesting, and it’s well done. Plus, you can see that everyone in it is enjoying themselves. Astronaut Clayton Anderson signed up to dance in the video. Two more astronauts, Michael Massimino and Tracy Caldwell Dyson, also decided to participate.

What’s not to like?

You can see the video by clicking on the above, or go to the ReelNASA YouTube channel,, and look for “NASA Johnson Style (Gangnam Style Parody).”


The 22nd Company of the U.S. Naval Academy has also created a “spirit spot” parody that has been removed from some internet locations. You can see why.

And here, finally and blessedly, is the Third Marine Aircraft Wing Band performing “Gangnam Style/Thunderstruck” at their 2012 Birthday Ball:

    Hilarious. Especially the Navy spoof. Gotta copy this post to send to my daughter so she can share it with my ex-wife, who is Korean….and goes bonkers for the original song. Video [iPhone] snippets of a 69 year old “Han-Guk” dancing along to Psy is amusing. Nina’s advantage is she still speaks the language fluently, while me not so much.
