Video: Alan Simpson Does Gangnam Style Austerity Dance

I admit it, I clicked and watched the Wall Street-funded New American Foundation video featuring rich kid Alan Simpson doing his Gangman Style parody dance.

Simpson seems to think he’s inspiring a new austerity generation when he once again invokes intergenerational warfare, telling the young ‘uns to “Get in there before all the old coots clean out the Treasury and leave you with nothing.”

Apparently he doesn’t understand that the dance is a parody of poseur rich kids like himself who have nothing better to do than act outrageously and call attention to themselves.

The fifth stage of having an international video megahit must be deep shame when stuff like this comes crawling out of the woodwork.
