Alan Simpson Goes 'Gangnam Style"

Does it get better than this?

This qualifies as an instant classic. The impressive new millennial group, The Can Kicks Back, struck viral gold today by convincing Alan Simpson to do a PSA on debt reduction that involves going "Gangnam Style" next to a giant mascot-sized can.  The video starts with the unvarnished former Senator unleashing a great diatribe against self-obsessed social media types and urges them to use their pre-occupation as a force for good - recruiting three friends a week until President Obama's inauguration to urge congress to take action on the $16 trillion debt.   A cause worth promoting by any means necessary.
