Aussie Jewish Elders React to ‘Gangnam Style’

“Let them dance, let them sing—but don’t make wars.”

(YouTube)

Here it is, dear readers: the Gangnam Style video to end all Gangnam style videos.

Residents of Gary Smorgon House, a Jewish aged care home in Melbourne, Australia, were asked to weigh in on Psy’s 2012 smash hit. (Full disclosure: this reporter’s cousins’ grandmother, Esther Klein, appears at 0:17.)

Their reactions are adorable, funny, and pretty wise, ranging from “Don’t put it in front of children” (seriously, word) to “I wish I could move like that,” to silent, tea-sipping bemusement. But the money quote is at 1:01: “Let them dance, let them sing—but don’t make wars.”

And let us say: Amen.
