WATCH: Norway Olympic Team Makes Gangnum Style Parody – ‘Pyeongchang Style’

The Norwegian Olympic Team is living its best life in Pyeongchang. On Friday, it was reported that Team Norway chefs accidentally ordered 15,000 eggs for the athletes due to a Google Translate error.

That was a hilarious story that found its way into the headlines, but it also ended up overshadowing what should very well be a viral video campaign.

NRK Sport, a publicly funded Norwegian broadcaster, released a parody video of “Gangnum Style,” a former hit song from South Korean singer/rapper Psy which was played during the Opening Ceremony of the 2018 Winter Olympics.

The video featured a handful of the athletes from Norway who will be competing in the games and was appropriately dubbed, “Pyeongchang Style.”

We’re not entirely sure if some of their lyrics were lost in translation like their egg order — because some of it is downright weird — but nevertheless it is an entertaining video that clearly takes its inspiration from the South Korean hit.

Check it out:

If Team Norway can compete as well as they perform during the Winter Games, the rest of the world is in trouble.

Norway has athletes competing in alpine skiing, biathlon, cross-country skiing, curling, freestyle skiing, ice hockey, nordic combined, skeleton, ski jumping, snowboarding and speed skating during the Games.

The 2018 Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, South Korea take place from Feb. 9 – Feb. 25.
