Ai Weiwei Made a "Gangnam Style" Parody Video

So you've already picked out your PSY Halloween costume, you've been practicing the pony dance, and you're well-versed in the subversive message of "Gangnam Style" but here's one thing we're betting you new K-Pop obsessives haven't done: watched Ai Weiwei's parody video. Labeling his version "Caonima Style" or "Grass Mud Horse Style" (which, along with a shot in handcuffs may reference a frequently-incorporated protest symbol meme), the celebrated dissident Chinese artist recorded and tweeted this clip of himself getting in full-blown PSY mode with some friends, in-between shots from the actual music video. And you know what? He's got some moves! Well...kinda.

Maybe you can dress up as Ai Weiwei as PSY for Klaus Biesenbach and Courtney Love's MoMA PS1 Halloween party?
