Peter Mansbridge dances Gangnam Style in Stratford parody

CBC anchor Peter Mansbridge tries out his best impression of Korean pop sensation Psy in a Gangnam Style parody video that was posted to Youtube Monday.

The video was created by members of the Stratford Festival and features casts members from 42nd Street and The Pirates of Penzance.

Though he could get his knees up a little higher, Mansbridge gives it his best effort around 1:14.

On Twitter, Mansbridge posted a link to the video, saying: “Be kind. I know I can’t dance or sing but it’s all good fun for a great Festival Theatre!”

Since Psy released his Gangnam Style music video, the song has gone viral, with nearly five million views on Youtube and hundreds of parody videos as fans try to recreate his famous horse dance.
