Gangnam Style Hits University of Illinois-Chicago's Athletes

Gangnam Style is the new Call Me Maybe which is now the old Macarena, or something like that. 

The University of Illinois-Chicago decided to fire up the camera and get all Gangnam Style with it, giving us a meme-powered video we are sure will not be the last. 

NBC Sports spotted this video of the Athletics department losing their minds while they dance and act like real cowboys—minus the horses and obvious western swagger. 

The Korean pop sensation is sweeping the campus as cheerleaders, football players, the tennis team and more all decide to rock out to the new viral song. 

If the last song to do this is any measure, we can expect roughly 8-10 months of parody videos to follow shortly. 

My feelings are rather mixed on the whole situation. On one hand, we have a thumping song that is starting to become all the more grating each time we hear it. 

On the other, this all but assures us that the next time we hear Carly Rae Jepsen's song is 20 years from now when VH-1 rolls out a Do You Remember episode of some sort. 

By then our hearing will have left us so we welcome the future with open arms. 

As for the UIC Flames, they got their Gangnam Style in just under the wire. The expiration date for these is just about now. 

So please put down the cameras, America.
