Jesper Parnevik engineers “Gangnam Style” comeback

Ian Walton

Gangnam Style has been everywhere, and Jesper Parnevik is the latest to take up the dance.

Tiger Woods’ favorite golfer, Jesper Parnevik, whose on-course career has been in doubt since he almost cut off a finger in a serious boating accident earlier this year, has made a comeback of sorts -- but it’s not what you might expect.

Parnevik, who introduced Woods to his ex-wife Elin Nordegren and severely criticized the 14-time major champ when his sex scandal went viral in 2009, gathered a few of his nearest and dearest to film a send-up of South Korean rapper PSY’s uber-popular "Gangnam Style" video sensation that’s sweeping the world. Parnevik, getting a jump on Halloween in his oversized, neon pink Elton John sunglasses and pastel pink suit, corralled his wife and children, a couple of golfing Johnsons (Dustin and Richard S.), and Fredrik Jacobson (according to GolfDigest.com’s Alex Myers; it's not easy to i.d. the guys under their flamboyant wigs ) to mouth the words and bust their versions of PSY’s giddy-up dance moves.


For the three of you who have not viewed the original, what cnet.com described as "a Korean Macarena," has become YouTube’s most "liked" video ever (as of this writing, the video had enjoyed almost 532 million views and chalked up nearly 4.5 million "likes"). Here’s your chance to see why (warning: involuntary hip swinging and uncontrollable lip-syncing may occur) :
