Former Wyoming Sen. Alan Simpson will dance to “Gangnam Style” to convince young voters to support lowering the country’s debt.
Simpson is on the Advisory Board of a new initiative called “The Can Kicks Back,” which seeks to encourage young voters to “fix the national debt.”
To promote the group, Simpson — the co-author of the bipartisan Simpson-Bowles plan in 2010— starred in a video that includes references to Instagram and the hashtag #FirstWorldProblems.
The 81-year-old co-chair of the National Committee on Fiscal Responsibility and Reform also attempted the popular “Gangnam Style” dance next to a young volunteer in a can costume.
Simpson encouraged viewers to “stop Instagramming your breakfast” and tell three friends per week about the initiative.
