Charming effort to relate to the youth of America? Or a menacing sign that the Mayans were right? In this video, retired Wyoming Sen. Alan Simpson, the 81-year-old Republican co-chair of President Barack Obama’s bipartisan National Commission on Fiscal Responsibility and Reform, shows off his “Gangnam Style” dance moves. The purpose of the clip? Raise awareness among young people about the need to reduce the national debt. As Simpson warns his viewers, “these old coots will clean out the Treasury before you get there.”

Great Gangnam Style dance or greatest Gangnam Style dance?
