How To Add Yourself To ‘Gangnam Style’ Music Video
Gangnam Style has taken over, recently becoming the most watched YouTube video of all time. The video now has over 840 million views and has a good chance of hitting 1 billion by the end of the year.
JibJab, a site known for their funny custom ecards, added Gangnam Style to the mix. Now anyone can add themselves to the music video and share their creation on the web.
Here’s how to create your very own:

- Click the red “Make Your Own” button.
- Select “Upload” or “Use Facebook Photos” to find an image of yourself or a friend/family member that you want to use.
- Once you’ve uploaded an image, you’ll need to zoom and/or rotate to have it center just right.
- Click the green “Next” button and you’ll be able to better fine-tune your image.
- Hit “Next” again and now you get to line up the mouth properly. JibJab gives easy instructions on how to do so.
- Select “Animate mouth” to see if it’s lined up and once you’re satisfied, hit “Next.”
- Enter a name, gender, who is in the image, and hit “Done.”
- Drag and drop your image to the video. Select the gray “Preview” button on the right to make sure it’s good.
- Click the green “Done” button and you’re presented with the video.
