WASHINGTON (CBSDC) — President Obama knows how to get down “Gangnam Style.”

During a press conference Tuesday at the White House with South Korean President Park Geun Hye, Obama revealed in his introductory comments that he was taught how to do the dance craze that swept the world last year.

“As I mentioned to President Park, my daughters have taught me a pretty good ‘Gangnam Style,’” Obama said.

Psy’s “Gangnam Style” video has garnered nearly 1.5 billion views on YouTube since it was posted less than one year ago. The South Korean artist took the U.S. and world by storm after the song rocketed up the charts.

Psy wasn’t without controversy though. The singer was criticized for previously making anti-American comments, for which he has since apologized.

His latest video, “Gentleman,” has been watched nearly 300 million times on YouTube since being released three weeks ago.
