The pop culture phenomenon known as “Gangnam Style” has finally reached the highest office of the United States. When asked about the craze, President Obama simply remarked, “I think I can do that move.”

大热的《江南style》终于流传到了美国白宫。在被问及全球掀起的这股流行文化风潮时,奥巴马总统简单地回答说:“我觉得我也能跳骑马舞。”


We can’t speak of President Obama’s confidence in the turnout of the 2012 election just yet, but he seems pretty secure in his dance moves. The hardest-hitting question President Obama has been asked yet was put forth by an interviewer curious as to whether or not the president had caught Gangnam fever yet.

我们还无法评价奥巴马总统对大选连任的信心,但他对自己的舞步的确很有自信。有位采访者对奥巴马是否也喜欢《江南style》非常好奇,这也是奥巴马总统被问到的最难回答的一个问题。


On Tuesday, during a radio spot with WZID-FM in New Hampshire, President Obama was pressed on the issue, asked whether or not he or Michelle would eventually do a rendition of South Korean rapper PSY’s international viral hit, which has currently notched up just over 6.5 million views on YouTube.

本周二,奥巴马在接受新罕布什尔州WZID-FM电台采访时,采访者问奥巴马,他或者米歇尔是不是真的会模仿韩国说唱歌手鸟叔的这段大热视频。《江南style》目前在YouTube视频网站上点击量已超过650万次。


“I just saw that video for the first time,” Obama replied. “I think I can do that move. But I’m not sure that the inauguration ball is the appropriate time to break that out.”

奥巴马说:“我是第一次看到《江南style》的音乐视频。我觉得我也能跳骑马舞。不过我觉得在就职舞会上跳这个舞并不合适。”


“Maybe,” he concluded, “I’ll do it privately for Michelle.”

他最后说:“也许我会私下里给米歇尔跳跳。”


“Gangnam Style” has spawned numerous public odes and parodies across the internet including a US Naval Academy version, a Saturday Night Live mock-up, and a Late Show with David Letterman clip that superimposed GOP candidate Mitt Romney’s head on the Gangnam dancer.

《江南style》受到无数粉丝的喜爱,也在全球引发了模仿热潮,包括美国海军学院模仿版本、《周六夜现场》模仿版本、以及在大卫-莱特曼主持的《午夜秀》中,将共和党总统候选人米特-罗姆尼的头像叠加在鸟叔身上的版本。


Personally, I think that the inauguration ball would be the perfect venue for a re-elected President Obama to go “Gangnam Style” with Michelle. PSY would probably have a heart attack.

我个人觉得奥巴马连任后,就职舞会是他和米歇尔跳骑马舞的理想场所,但鸟叔看到会犯心脏病的。

This song is like a can of coca cola! Quick, intense, filling.....but only short-lived.
