'Spartan High School Style' By Garden Spot Students Named 'Worst Video On The Entire Internet'

We've seen our share of "Gangnam Style" parodies in our day, but this one takes the cake.

What started as a school project at Garden Spot High School in New Holland, Penn., "Spartan High School Style" has become a viral sensation as "the single worst video on the entire Internet."

"THIS IS NOT MY VIDEO," YouTube user Cym4tic writes. "This is from my high school. And I hate my high school, so no shame. Feel free to hate it and share it with the world!"

The video has garnered more than 14,700 dislikes by Thursday morning, and features lyrics on school spirit and student motivation as students and teachers attempting PSY's "Gangnam Style" dance.

It was a student project created before Thanksgiving, and the school principal thought the student creator did a "great job" with the the assignment, Intelligencer Journal reports.

"It ties into our Spartan language about doing what's right, doing your best and doing for others. It's a parody in a positive way," Principal matthew Sanger told the publication. "It's about school-wide unity. We decided to embrace it and see the good in it. W'ere letting it roll and we'll see where it goes."

Where it's going is more than 407,500 views by Thursday morning, and counting. BostInno has done a timestamped breakdown of the video with snarky commentary. Reddit users have filled a message board with hundreds of comments.

"It's amazing the turn it's taken," Garden Spot Dean of Students Eli Cox told the Intelligencer Journal. "I'm onto really concerned with what other people think who sit around making fun of people putting themselves out there."

While a commendable effort on the students' parts for this school assignment, California math teacher Hyun "Teddy" Ko is still our favorite dancer. His "Gangnam Style" performance for Murrieta Mesa High School's first pep rally of the year is nothing short of remarkable -- and he even looks a little like PSY.
