Britney Spears and Ellen are doing it, the cast of SNL are doing it and now Los Angeles residents with nothing better to spend their time on today are doing it. We're taking about the "Gangnam Style" dance. Its creator Psy appeared at The Grove only minutes ago for an Extra taping and in honor of the occasion, a flashmob of "Gangnam Style" dancers took over the mall.
According to the Extra blog, almost anyone could participate but dancers who showed up to two prior rehearsals had "a better chance of being featured prominently on camera." The taping was at 2pm and should air tonight at 7pm PT.
