The Asian American Legal Advocacy Center’s “Voting Gangnam Style” video on Youtube has gone viral, according to a press release issued by the center.
The 60-second video was meant to be a teaser for a full-length get-out-to-vote video to be released later. AALAC partnered with Kollaboration Atlanta to shoot the video.
“We wanted to send a message -- especially to students -- that voting is fun. And to make that message viral, we took advantage of the international dance hit Gangnam Style,” Helen Ho, AALAC’s executive director, said in the press release.
The video, released Oct. 17, features Innonim dancers and Congressman John Lewis, D-Atlanta, doing the famous Gangnam Style dance.
AALAC’s 2012 "Vote For Our Future Campaign" has registered more than 1,430 new voters in Georgia. In addition, AALAC is sponsoring a Dekalb and Gwinnett Candidates Forum from 6 to 9 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 25, at the Korean American Association Building at 6930 Buford Hwy. in Doraville.
Invited to participate in the forum are candidates running for office in North DeKalb and Gwinnett counties (Congressional Districts 6 & 7, State Senate Districts 5, 40 & 48, and State House Districts 81 & 96). AALAC is a nonpartisan nonprofit and does not endorse any political party or candidate.
