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.
