Haltom yearbook staff goes Gangnam Style for video contest

Written by Evan Blackwell, CJE

Here’s another entry in Walsworth’s 2012 Video Contest, this one from Haltom High School in Haltom City, Texas.

The Haltom staff decided to seize upon the popularity of the recent hit song and video “Gangnam Style” by South Korean rapper Psy. “Gangnam Style” has become one of the most watched viral videos of all-time, with more than 480 million views, and Haltom’s video “Yearbook NOW” features the staff doing their own Gangnam Style dance.

Check out Haltom’s dance moves in the video below, then vote for “Yearbook Now” over at Walsworth’s Facebook page by giving it a Like. The video contest runs until Nov. 19, and winners will be selected by a committee of judges based on the following criteria: message and appropriateness to theme, creativity, entertainment value, viral nature as determined by the number of video Likes on Facebook and technical prowess.
