Cambodian Version of Gangnam Style by 160 Kids from the Slums

Now this is just awesome!

What happens when 160 kids from a slum of Phnom Penh decide to do a parody of Gangnam Style? This amazingly funny video.
These impoverished kids live in extremely basic conditions but are full of talent and potential. We wanted to give them an opportunity to express themselves through an artistic and fun project. They didn’t disappoint us.

To learn more about this project and give back to the kids:http://www.taramana.org/en/gs/

Don’t miss the behind the scenes: http://youtu.be/rPfnrI_Jw3I

And the kid’s reaction when they see the parody
