PSY’s “Gangnam Style” Horse Dance: He Spent 30 Nights Mastering It & Tried Other Animals First

From Idolator:

PSY spoke at Oxford University on Wednesday (November 7) and revealed some of the secrets behind his world-conquering smash “Gangnam Style.” Addressing the vaunted Oxford Union debating society, PSY explained that perfecting the now-viral song and dance was a laborious process (like any work of genius, we suppose). “I stayed up for 30 nights to find that horse-riding dance,” the Korean pop star said, according to NME. “I tried every creature: elephant, monkey, kangaroo, snake. The kangaroo hopping was too slow, so we ended up imitating a horse.”
