Rapper Psy wants Tom Cruise to go Gangnam Style
BANGKOK (AP) - The South Korean rapper behind YouTube's most-viewed video ever has set what might be a Mission: Impossible for himself.
Asked which celebrity he would like to see go Gangnam Style, the singer Psy told The Associated Press: "Tom Cruise!" Surrounded by screaming fans, he then chuckled at the idea of the American movie star doing his now famous horse-riding dance.
Psy's comments on Wednesday in Bangkok were his first public remarks since his viral smash video - with 838 million views - surpassed Justin Bieber's Baby, which until Saturday held the record with 803 million views.
"It's amazing," Psy told a news conference, saying he never set out to become an international star. "I made this video just for Korea, actually. And when I released this song - wow."
