The Gangnam Style” parody has reached Bolivian politicians. Earlier this week, KwonBanYa, a Bolivian YouTube user, uploaded a humorous version of the Korean rap-pop song featuring prominent political figures.

The video stars representations of President Evo Morales and vicepresident Alvaro García Linera, as well as other members of the ruling party and the opposition.

The “Gangnam Style” has been turned into a source of political parody in many countries around the globe.
