PLEASE NOTE: AUDIO AS INCOMING Psy teaches Oxford a thing or two about Gangnam Style. The South-Korean rapper was invited to speak at the world's most famous debating society by the union's first East Asian presidents. Psy, who is following in the footsteps of the likes of Winston Churchill, the Dalai Lama and Michael Jackson, said he was baffled by the invitation. SOUNDBITE: Psy, rapper, saying (English): "It's an honor and it's kind of weird. Why did they call me?" Psy became a global success after the video of his song "Gangnam Style", which features a horse-riding-style dance, went viral. During his speech he voiced his concerns about making a follow-up to the famous song. SOUNDBITE: Psy, rapper, saying (English): "I gotta beat horse riding dance. And I gotta beat the music video. All that things like toilet scenes and you know elevator scenes. How can I beat that elevator scene. It's so nasty, right?" Currently the video has over 672 million views on Youtube.
