United Nations chief professes fondness for comedy South Korean music video in interview with AFP, considers it force for better international understanding

What does Gangnam Style have to do with the United Nations, exactly? Easy: UN General Secretary Ban Ki-Moon happens to be a big fan.

The 68-year-old Ban Ki-moon is South Korean, just like Gangnam Style star Psy, and he told AFP in an interview on Tuesday that he’s seen the aggressively weird video “several times.”

Ki-moon waxed poetic about the international appeal of the video, telling AFP: “There are no languages required in the musical world. That is the power of music, that is the power of the heart. Through this promotion of arts we can better understand the culture and civilizations of other people.
