Why is Key doing 'Gangnam Style'?
Wed, 19 Dec 2012 8:54a.m.
Prime Minister John Key has been caught on camera doing the 'Gangnam Style' dance.
Mr Key did the dance during an interview with radio station The Edge this morning, at one point bumping hips with host Jay-Jay Feeney.
When he was finished, Mr Key explained his lack of rhythm: "We're not Korean, that's the problem."
Ms Feeney replied, "That was awesome."
'Gangnam Style', by Korean pop star PSY, is the most-viewed video on YouTube.
Labour MP Andrew Little did the dance last week in Parliament.
Mr Key further embraced the silly season later in the morning, stopping in at The Rock where he got “married” to announcer Bryce Casey.

Aaahhh i wish i had more to say but as much as I love to see the prime minister take a break. We have a bigger prime minister who never takes a break. and we are discarding his laws. making smarmy in his face. I fear for our country and its future. God defend our free land. everyone needs to read our national anthem again. and thank God for keeping us the way that he has. We asked in our anthem for him too afterall. but where has our honor gone. people do what they may in their privacy. But our government, our laws, is the say for the land, the people, and Gods blessing.

Doesn't sound like you're thinking at all Tallica1? Kiwis aren't suddenly laying about the country in great numbers expecting the wealthy to fix their lives. And your stereotyping of the left just avoids the real issues in a pratty childish sort of way. Kiwis aren't jealous of Jonkey they're just pissed off with him and his govt,cos they're so inept and proving to be useless at solving any of the nation's woes. So it's typical of an out of touch PM to get his gangnam on in the midst of all the misery....Most kiwis want the opportunity to earn a living and a decent wage. They expect their govt to help structure an environment that creates jobs! Bottom line is where are the jobs Jonkey promised, when he wanted to get into power? Where are the jobs in NZ,not Aussie? Where are the jobs he said he'd see to? When you can come up with an answer that is serious and free of stereotyping, you'll start sounding a bit more real.....it amazes me, how people are quick to blame the least well off in this crisis when it was bankers like Jonkey who crashed the whole system to start with? Jonkey of the Jobs-failure is one of the he'll be remembered for....if he couldn't deliver the jobs he shouldn't have lied to get into power ay?

I'm thinking many Labour supporters are just jellous Mr Key is able to enjoy himself.
Remember, don't rely on any govt to make your life better. Do that yourself!Seems like a leftie view though...to expect handouts from others who are doing well.

Everytime the govt looks bad or inept then out comes the ruse and this is no different.
Its just a ploy to distract voters from the real issue his govt was pushing,petrol price rises.
Thx for the christmas present John Key,all that is needed now are tax hikes for the middle and working classes.Who knows,maybe the easter bunny will bring it for us?
