Toronto Mayor Rob Ford is the target of the latest parody of Gangnam Style, a Korean rap video that went viral after its release last summer.
The parody video was taken earlier this month at a football game Ford attended at Toronto's York University.
In it, a youth wearing a bowtie and sunglasses dances madly around Ford as he stands on the sidelines, speaking on a cellphone, not acknowledging the dancer in front of him.
The video, posted Sunday, is a take on the song Gangnam Style by Korean rapper Psy, a video that has inspired countless parodies of the wacky horse-riding dance that accompanies it.
