If you needed another sign that Psy's "Gangnam Style" had jumped the shark, President Obama delivered it Tuesday.
That's when he told reporters, "My daughters have taught me a pretty good Gangnam style."
Sure, he mentioned it after his meeting with South Korean President Park Geun-hye, in what can only assume was intended to be a compliment to a nation that has spawned a pop culture sensation whose video has attracted more than a billion viewers.
In addition to dancing, the two leaders also discussed perilously high tensions between North and South Korea are perilously high, and the fact that last week North Korean authorities sentenced Kenneth Bae, a Korean American who traveled there in November, to 15 years of hard labor for what they said were crimes against the state.
“The days when North Korea could create a crisis and elicit concessions, those days are over," Obama remarked.
If this current round of diplomacy doesn't bear fruit, there's always NBA star Dennis Rodman who may come to the rescue. Rodman, who visited North Korean President Kim Jon Un earlier this year, tweeted Tuesday, "I'm calling on the Supreme Leader of North Korea or as I call him 'Kim', to do me a solid and cut Kenneth Bae loose."
Well that should solve everything. And then maybe the president can show off his snazzy Gangnam moves in public.
