NASA celebrates Johnson Space Center with 'Gangnam Style' parody

NASA Johnson Style

When NASA isn't releasing gorgeous satellite photos of Earth or planning new rover missions to Mars, it's apparently shooting parody videos at its headquarters in Houston, Texas. A new video released to the agency's official YouTube page, dubbed "Johnson Style," celebrates the historic facility to the tune of Psy's wildly popular "Gangnam Style." Like the original, "Johnson Style" features plenty of horse dancing, but instead of the Gangnam District in Korea, the video was shot inside NASA's mission control and alongside rockets and advanced flight simulators. The parody was written and performed by students as a means "inform the public about the amazing work going on at NASA and the Johnson Space Center." Check out the video below.
