Eton Style! 'Awkward' Boys' Gangnam Parody
A group of pupils from Eton College have posted a Gangnam Style-inspired video on YouTube, where the teenagers rap about life at one of the country's top public schools.
Gangnam Style was a track released by South Korean rapper Psy in July. It is known for its catchy dance beats and has become an internet sensation, watched by hundreds of millions of people.
The pupils' version, Eton Style, parodies a public perception of the school and its students.
The boys will be hoping the song goes some way towards repeating the success of Psy.
Their lyrics include: "Awkward, frustrated, lonely, and insecure. We don't like conflict with other people.
"Coz if you push us then we'll just break down and cry."
They added: "We're not too social, can't talk to women, although we try, we're just too shy."
The video features some of the local landmarks including Windsor Great Park, Windsor Bridge and the Long Walk leading from Windsor Castle.
Tony Little, the headmaster of Eton, confirmed to Sky News the teenagers were pupils at the school, adding: "This is a self-deprecating piece of fun by some boys who are parodying themselves."
The fees for the world-famous Berkshire school are among the highest in the country, and Princes William and Harry as well as Prime Minister David Cameron are among its former pupils.
A couple of weeks ago, Psy became the first South Korean artist to make it to number one in the UK singles chart with Gangnam Style.
