President Barack Obama recently admitted that he likes the “Gangnam Style” track by Korean artist PSY.

The president told People that he likes to do the signature “Gangnam Style” dance, just to get under the skin of his daughters, Malia, 14, and Sasha, 11.

“‘They’re cooler than I am,” Obama said of his daughters.  “There are things I like that they think are cheesy, like ‘Gangnam Style.’ I love that.”

President Obama also discussed getting choked up by the small amount of time he gets to be a parent before the girls are grown up.

“The joy they bring on a minute-to-minute, day-by-day basis — the idea that that’s not there all the time is something that can hit me hard sometimes,” he said.
