14 lifeguards fired after parodying PSY’s ‘Gangnam Style’
As PSY‘s Gangnam Style becomes a worldwide hit, different parodies are being uploaded online.
In Los Angeles, California, 14 lifeguards tried to make their own version at a city pool in El Monte where they work. Their version showed the famous horse dance as well as some synchronized dancing at the pool. However, after the video was uploaded, the young lifeguards were soon terminated at their job by their city for the reason that they were “using city property, including the pool and their uniforms, for private use”. The workers claim that the video clips were recorded during their break time.
