The massive success of PSY’s “Gangnam Style” music video, which recently hit the half-billion views mark on Youtube, has inspired a number of spinoffs around the globe — including China. There’s been a Hong Kong Style, Laowai Style and even a Yangpu Style, just to name a few.
BEAN Shanghai also joined in on the Gangnam Style action, doing PSY’s now famous horse dance in various spots around Shanghai to promote the upcoming Pretty in Pink Breast Cancer Awareness Charity Gala. Video for those in China below:
Pretty in Pink is a charity gala aimed at raising money to fight breast cancer and spread awareness. It’s an event hosted around the world, and this is the first time it will ever be held in Mainland China. The proceeds from the gala will be donated to the China Breast Cancer Foundation, who will use the funds to provide grants for breast cancer treatment to impoverished women across China.
