F1 goes 'Gangnam Style': PSY to perform at Korean Grand Prix

South Korean singer PSY whose hit video Gangnam Style has gone viral on YouTube with nearly 295 million hits, is going to perform at the South Korean Formula One Grand Prix on 14 October.

An AutoSport report quoted him as saying "I look forward to bringing Gangnam Style to the glamorous world of F1, and welcome everyone to Korea for this great race."

PSY's Gangnam Style video with its horse dancing moves has won fans all across the world. And this is the kind of response that the video evokes:

Recently West Indies Cricket Chris Gayle has taken to celebrating with the rodeo-style dance whenever he takes a wicket at the ICC World T20 tournament that's going in Sri Lanka. You can check out Gayle's moves here.

PSY has even taught his signature move to Britney Spears on the Ellen de Generes Show. You can read more about that here.

And if you thought Gangnam Style was all about a horse riding dance, you're wrong. It actually is a scathing commentary on South Korea's 'noveau rich' culture.
