Super Mario Gangnam Style Flash Mob's Got Some Moves

Posted by Thomas Whitehead

It was inevitable

If you haven't heard of Gangnam Style, maybe you're the lucky one. That might be harsh, but the quirky music video has gone so viral that there's no escape, meaning that lots of people are happily imitating it and looking rather silly.

As most will know, meanwhile, the best place to find people dressed in silly outfits with time on their hands is at a university campus, with a good spot seeming to be University of California, Berkeley. The video below is yet another imitation, rather cutely called Super Mario Style, but we must give credit for the successful flash mob that kicks in. As we've suggested, they're probably all students, which explains why they're so cheery and have had lots of opportunity to practice the well-known dance moves. Once this gets going, it's pretty good.

The proper dancers dressed as Mario, Luigi and Toad show off a bit too, though Luigi arguably wins the dance-off.

So what do you think? We suggest anyone with the intention of becoming the 50,350th person to do a Gangnam Style video think about whether it'll be better than this before going through with it.

@Mr_Trill3506: "(insert thing here) is the new black" is a saying that means 'the new hotness' or 'what's in this season'. It has nothing to do with race. check it out! :3

Haha, this is really cool. I mean yeah it's been done a bunch o' times already but I love that song and dance and they did this pretty well. They seem to have added a lot of their own flair to it and that's cool.

Sigh...

Gangnam Style is CRAP, IMO, but everyone at school loves it. I don't get why they love it so much!

This just makes me wanna cry!

What's a Gangnam Style? This just makes me miss the terrible yet awesome dance music of the 90's even more.

It's irritating how this is everywhere. What a stupid phase for society. I wish the song never existed.
