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 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.
