The Google Dance: Google’s Eric Schmidt and PSY Dance “Gangnam Style”

Google's Eric Schmidt "Gangnam Style"

Technology news site The Verge shared a photo and video of Google chairman Eric Schmidt doing the “Gangnam Style” dance while visiting Korea this week. He took a break from his tour of East Asia where he is launching the Nexus 7 to meet the PSY – the rapper behind the record-breaking viral YouTube hit. It’s a good thing he brought his dancing shoes. The song is currently number two in the country on the Billboard’s Top 100.

Hankyung journalist Kim Kwang-hyun intially shared the photo in a tweet. You can also get a brief sense of Schmidt’s dancing skills in the video below. Perhaps we can say that “Gangnam Style” should be considered the official Google Dance.
