George Washington University’s “Gangnam Style” Parody: Surprisingly Creepy

Against all odds, George Washington University students have managed to create a "Gangnam Style" parody that doesn't irritate. The stars here are the university's hippo and mascot George Washington, who plays the role of "Gangnam Style" mastermind Psy.

Washington's the real standout here, despite (or because of?) an uncomfortably emotionless performance. Whether he's dodging trash or standing in GW's pool in what comes off like a rejected scene from Swimfan, Washington hasn't been this malevolent since he saved the children (but not the British children).
