Voter advocacy groups 18 Million and Rising and the Asian American Legal Advocacy Center teamed up with Georgia Rep. John Lewis for a “Gangnam Style”-inspired video encouraging Asian Americans to vote (for Democrats).


Ummm.Okay.Politics aside, do you think this will be an effective campaign strategy?Or is there such a thing… fb.me/2gJYmO6k9

Effective? No. A bit frightening? You bet.

Creepiness of Lewis’ dancing notwithstanding, the video seems to have gone over pretty well:

If John Lewis can do this, we can get out the vote. Hilarious! “Congressman John Lewis – Voting Gangnam Style. youtu.be/UQzuK_Tarvg

Though one liberal is vowing to do the unthinkable if the incessant “Gangnam Style” parodies don’t let up soon:

Can we put this Gangnam Style garbage to rest already? Dear God, I’ll even vote republican if we agree to do this.
