Shin-Soo Choo Brings "Gangnam Style" Mania To Cleveland

So, you may or may not know "Gangnam Style." If not, here's a quick primer: Psy's Korean pop smash currently has over 170 million views on Youtube, is the most liked video in the site's history and is currently No. 1 on iTunes' singles chart in the United States. If it's not already, "Gangnam Style" is on its way to being the viral video of 2012, and it's now starting to break into mainstream culture here in America. Like for instance, The Ellen Show, or, thanks to Shin-Soo Choo, Progressive Field in Cleveland.

Choo, a native South Korean, used "Gangnam Style" as his walk-up music on Friday night at Progressive Field vs. the Detroit Tigers, and as he predicted, Indians fans were doing the song's signature dance in the stands.

Video of "Gangnam Style": Cleveland Edition should be on YouTube soon enough, but in the meantime here's a video of what happened when "Gangnam Style" got played at Dodger Stadium, with Psy in attendance.
