Giant panda goes wild 'Gangnam Style'

Panda.jpgWith the South Korean singer PSY's 'Gangnam Style' sensation heating up globally, a video recently uploaded on YouTube under the title, 'Gangnam Style Panda', has caught the eyes of netizens worldwide.


This video was made by the Chengdu Panda Base, a non-profit organization co-sponsoring the Chengdu Pambassador 2012 program with WildAid and the Yao Ming Foundation, to increase public interest for Giant Pandas. Ogilvy & Mather offices in China and UK helped create the campaign - Apex Ogilvy in Chengdu, Ogilvy PR/London, and Social@Ogilvy/Shanghai.
The video features scenes with the Panda doing the horse riding dance (also known as the 'Gangnam Style' dance) with people in the streets of London. In particular, the Panda's remarkable dance moves and the video quality as high as the original version of the music video caught the eyes of netizens worldwide.

'Gangnam Style Panda' video can be found on YouTube, as well as on the official Chengdu Pambassador 2012 Facebook page.
