Jim Yong Kim, World Bank Nominee, Raps At Dartmouth (WATCH)

Posted: Updated:

The World Bank may have at least 99 problems, but its leader's ability to spit rhymes will not be one.

Jim Yong Kim, the man President Obama has tapped to run the World Bank, can be found on the internet rapping (h/t ThinkProgress). The Dartmouth President threw down to help introduce "Dartmouth Idol," the college's live version of the famed television show.

Dressed in a black t-shirt, black pants, a white coat, a white fedora and glowing green bracelets, Kim sang, rapped and channeled *NSync in a choreographed dance to a parody of the Black Eyed Peas' "Time of My Life."

On Friday, Obama announced that he would be nominating Kim, a leader in the public health field, to the surprise of many. That's because bigger names like Former Treasury Secretary Larry Summers and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton were rumored to be in the running for the post.

Unfortunately, copious Google searches don’t seem to be turning up any Harvard videos of Summers dancing to "Tonight's Gonna Be A Good Night." Please let us know if you find any.
