Psy Begs El Monte to Rehire "Gangnam" Lifeguards

Monday, September 17, 2012


Before Psy made his surprise appearance on SNL this past Saturday, he stopped by MTV News to ask El Monte city officials to give back the jobs of 14 lifeguards who were canned for filming a "Lifeguard Style" spoof on pool facilities without permission.




Yvonne Tam, a lifeguard and UC Santa Barbara student, told The L.A. Times, "I understand we broke policies, but we did not vandalize or damage property. Maybe they would consider suspension or a write-up so we don't have it on our resume for the future."


Do you think these lifeguards deserved to get sacked for making the video?
