Powershop goes Gangnam Style

Powershop goes Gangnam Style

Meet hot new band Mao Tse Tung and the Great Leap Forward, performing 'Gangnam For Freedom' as part of Powershop's long-running 'Same Power, Different Attitude' campaign. 

After all, David Cameron, Barack Obama and John Key have all been seen dancing Psy's Gangnam Style and Ban Ki-Moon has hailed it as a "force for world peace". Why not use it to sell electricity?

It might've been even better if North Korea's Kim Jong-Un had his dancing shoes on, but there was a chance it may have resulted in nuclear war.  

"We've just moved to a bunker in Newtown to protect us from nuclear assault," says design director Simon Coley. "Unfortunately Kim Jong Un doesn't have quite the sartorial style and fame as his illustrious Father. Especially in the spectacle department."
