Yep, "Gangnam Style" is just as weird in Klingon.
Still, it's one thing to slap together a "Gangnam Style" parody with a couple of your buddies from the pool. It's another thing entirely to think up lyrics in Klingon, dress up in costumes, choreograph and perform a "Star Trek" version of the viral K-pop song.
Whether you like "Trek" or not, you've got to admire the effort that went into "Klingon Style." But to be honest, this video, directed by Emily McGregor, will likely be more meaningful to fans of the science-fiction franchise, particularly "The Next Generation."
But even if you don't catch the reference to the love triangle between Worf, Riker and Troi, there are a few laughs in "Klingon Style" that are context-free. Like when Data dances -- that's an in-joke, but it's also just funny.
While it's definitely a low-budget production (another thing Trekkers often see past), at least no one got fired over this. In fact, the "geektastic" folks at Comediva that made "Klingon Style" have a couple more "Trek"-related bits up their futuristic spandex sleeves.
We can't independently verify the group's Klingon, but in case you're wondering, Comediva says that they are working on a lyric sheet for English-speaking hu-mahns.
Bonus: 15 minutes of Worf getting denied:
