NASA Johnson Space Center parodies “Gangnam Style”

Just when we thought the “Gangnam Style” parodies were over, the NASA Johnson Space Center has released its own version of the song. The educational video explains what NASA does (now that it doesn’t actually send people into space anymore thanks to President Barack Obama).

“NASA Johnson Style” features original lyrics set to the familiar tune of PSY’s worldwide hit. The star of the video also replicates PSY’s dance moves in various spots across the Johnson Space Center, moving from the lab to the interior of the space travel machines and, of course, to the elevator.

The video was published on December 14 and has already shot to “Gangnam” stardom in only a few days with more than 2.5 million views. It joins the likes of countless other individuals, like a York University student and members of the U.S. Naval academy’s 22nd company, who have filmed their own popular renditions of the PSY hit.

The original video “Gangnam Style” video was not only this year’s most-watched YouTube video, it is also the most-watched YouTube video in history. Today it hit one billion YouTube views, reports The Sun. PSY released the Korean pop single on July 15 and it has since shot to worldwide stardom. Recently he came under fire for anti-American comments he made during a performance in 2004. He has since apologized and was subsequently allowed toperform as planned at the pre-taped Christmas in Washington special, which airs tonight at 8pm EST/7PM Central.

The controversy surrounding the South Korean pop star clearly didn’t stop NASA from jumping on the Gangnam style bandwagon. The result was an informative but entertaining video that will hopefully encourage young people to give NASA a second look.
