Tawfik Okasha, "Gangnam Style"
توفيق عكاشة جانجام ستايل
This video montage, to the music of the 2012 K-Pop hit by PSY, pokes fun at Tawfiq Okasha, political commentator and controversial host of the 'Egypt Today' talk show. He is known for his right-wing populism and conspiracy theories and was a strong supporter of the removal of Mohamed Morsi and the military's return to power after July 2013.
During the rule of SCAF, he used his show to demonise pro-revolution activists and other figures and to incite counter-demonstrations in support of SCAF. Consequently, he was often the target of fun and ridicule by supporters of the 25 January 2011 revolution.
The video also pokes fun at the Muslim Brotherhood and Salafists.
