Mitt Romney Style.jpgIf you have no clue what "Gangnam Style" is, you have probably been under a rock - but if you do not know, the following video will require some much needed context.

"Gangnam Style" is a song from by South Korean rapper Psy that since it's release in July has gone viral.

As wikipedia explains:

"Gangnam Style" is a Korean neologism that refers to a lifestyle associated with the Gangnam district of Seoul, where people are trendy, hip and exude a certain supposed "class". The term was listed in Time's weekly vocabulary list as a manner associated with lavish lifestyles in Seoul's Gangnam district. Psy likened the Gangnam District to Beverly Hills, California, USA, and said in an interview that he intended a twisted sense of humor by claiming himself to be "Gangnam Style" when everything about the song, dance, looks, and the music video is far from being such a high class.

So now CollegeHumor has gifted us with an American adaptation - "Mitt Romney Style." And I have to say, I think they have successfully recaptured the message of the original.

Check out both videos after the break.
