The Bangkok Post reports that a senior officer in Thailand's navy was forced to apologize over a silly YouTube video remake of PSY's "Gangnam Style."
Vice Admiral Tharathorn Kajitsuwan, the Third Naval Area commander, said the video was made for entertainment purposes and to be showcased at the unit's annual retirement party. Some senior officers were said to have been offended by the "improper" spectacle of officers in dress whites prancing about, but Commander Surasak Rounroengrom said no harm was done to the Navy's image.
"I told my subordinates that the video should be entertaining to watch and help promote unity in the unit," Vice Adm Tharathorn said on Monday.
The video took three days to film and edit, and was shown at the base’s annual party last week. It shows "white-uniformed sailors in sunglasses galloping through their offices and officers in scuba gear shimmying up the beach."
In honor of the great director Jonathan Demme who died yesterday, please enjoy this bloopers reel from his classic film Silence of the Lambs. More horror film blooper reels at TVOvermind.
