Former senator Alan Simpson (R-Wyo.) is willing to dance Gangnam style to convince young Americans to get interested in lowering the nation's debt.
"Stop Instagramming your breakfast and tweeting your #FirstWorldProblems and getting on YouTube to watch 'Gangnam Style,' " Simpson, 81, says in new video for The Can Kicks Back, an anti-debt group focused on younger voters.
Instead, he suggests the youngs use those platforms to ask others to sign a petition on TheCanKicksBack.org. If they don't, Simpson warns, "these old coots will clean out the Treasury before you get there."
Whether Simpson's dancing will win over millennial Americans to his debt-reduction crusade or just help kill the viral South Korean video remains to be seen.
