Awful 'Gangnam Style' parody is exceptionally awful

In a post Tim & Eric world I have trouble believing a video like this can be made without at least a minor twinge of self-aware irony, but...well, Deltra Goodman exists. So who's to say. This was pulled from our morning "10 Things" news round-up, because sometimes you need to experience these things unburdened by real life. Or at least, a version of. Andrew P Street writes:

We know there are a lot of parodies of 'Gangnam Style' floating around, but have to concur with Gawker in that this one really should be the last: they ain't getting more amazing than this. It's been called "the worst video on the internet", and for once the hyperbole seems legitimate. To be fair, no-one's ever likely to say "why, I bet this half-assed version of a novelty song expressing school spirit for Garden Spot High School (go Spartans!) will be a powerful piece of art," but if you were ever wondering if Michael Scott's occasional Scranton-rapping videos on The Office were authentic in their dreadfulness… look, you're just going to have to watch this. Trust us. And we're sorry.

Psy, of course, is appearing at the Future Music Festival in March. Read our in-depth analysis of 'Gangnam Style' in our Number Ones piece here on TheVine.

    I lasted exactly 12 seconds before I started to make subhuman noises.

    Those noises are your chi telling you to go get some yoghurt so your tummy doesn't rumble while absorbing this exceptional video.
