Viral Video: Congressman John Lewis Goes 'Gangnam Style' for Your Vote

Representative John Lewis is the latest politician to make a version of the YouTube video 'Gangnam Style'.

Korean pop star PSY has taken music charts and YouTube by storm with the viral hit 'Gangnam Style', which has gotten into the minds and into the pop culture of today so much so that civil rights legend and U.S. Congressman John Lewis has created a 'Vote, Gangnam Style' spoof video.

Rep. John Lewis makes a fun appearance in this version of the video to urge people to go to the polls and "vote, Gangnam Style!"  The video was created by the Asian American Legal Advocacy Center (AALAC) and Kollaboration Atlanta and features Innonim and the civil rights leader.

The meaning of the actual song by the South Korean pop star is said to be much more complicated than what the fun and playful dance seems to portray.

Gangnam is an actual district of Seoul, Korea.  Roughly 1% of Seoul's population resides in the district, and those that can afford it are extremely wealthy and part of the "new wealth." These residents in the Gangnam neighborhood are said to have become both envied and hated, and the song by PSY plays at both of those emotions.

Regardless of what it is trying to say, over 220 million people have watched the video on YouTube.

The John Lewis version of the video has also been entered into the “My Vote, Our Future” contest where it will compete with other films nationwide. If you have a second to spare, please watch the video and vote for it on their website – no sign-up necessary!

Some tribes in Sudan and Senegal http://www.coachoutletonlinexc.net/ Coach Factory Outlet have an average height of 6-foot-6, which also happens to be the size of the average NBA player. People in Nigeria, http://www.louisvuittonoutletam.net/ Louis Vuitton Purses Mali and Congo tend to be very big and physical. We need to build a strategy to go into these regions http://www.coachoutletstoreze.com/ Coach Factory Outlet and cultivate the talent through infrastructure and instruction.Not long ago, soccer in Africa was almost http://www.guccibeltsoutletds.net/ Gucci Belts the same way. It was untapped.Kids in Africa start kicking a ball when they are six or seven years old, if not younger. http://www.coachfactoryonlinefn.net/ Coach Factory Outlet It's like baseball, basketball and football in America.

The number of academies has grown rapidly, and people are really into it. As a http://www.coachoutletb1.com/ Coach Factory Online result, nearly every major soccer team has a lot of African players.Through my experience as a Nigerian player, http://www.coachoutlethcs.com/ Coach Outlet Online coach and now NBA executive, I believe basketball can follow a similar path.
