Washington Redskins Niles Paul is still learning how to Gangnam Style

At one point in July of 2012, Carly Rae Jepsen's "Call Me Maybe" was the hit song that you couldn't run away from. That all changed on July 15th when Korean rapper Psy debuted "Gangnam Style" on the Internet.

Since then, the video has had over 900 millions views on YouTube and trademark dance has become the 2010's version of the "Macarena".

While most of us have got it down to a science, Washington Redskins Niles Paul is still learning how to do it and even posted back in November on his Twitter page that he needed to learn how to do the dance:
“I watched a few training videos,” he told Sarah Kogod of the Washington Post, when asked if anyone had offered him lessons. “I think I’ve got the dance down now. I’ve practiced a couple of times. Every time the video comes on, I try to get in rhythm with it.”

“I’ve done it on the practice field a couple of times,” he laughed. “A couple of people joined in. Santana and DY (FB Darrell Young). They were all doing it.”
As noted in the Washington Post article, Paul and some his teammates might eventually have a Gangnam Style dance-off.

So, we'll keep you posted if that ever happens....
