Mitt Romney dances Gangnam style

(CNN) - Former Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney stepped out of character this weekend, hopping on stage at a concert in Arizona and attempting the Gangnam style dance move.

Performer Alex Boye, British-born and a Mormon, coaxed the former Massachusetts governor into the spotlight for an impromptu dance lesson at a regional conference for young adults in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints in Arizona over the weekend.

Boye tweeted Monday a YouTube video of the two sharing the stage.

"So this weekend I taught Mitt Romney the Gangnam Dance....."

According to the Deseret News, Romney also spoke at the conference held at Arizona State University.

CNN's Dana Davidsen contributed to this report.

    It's good to see political figures having fun, showing they too are just human.

    Leave it to an old conservative man to be a year and a half behind the times.

    Someone that stiff should not dance any style, at least in public. I've had spine surgery and am more flexible than Romney.

    actually Frank only 1-1/2 years is GOOD for an old conservative. Most are looking to go back to the 1950s or earlier

    Is Mitt trying to show his "regular guy" side to get votes for 2016?

    Does it really even matter what he did with friends? I mean both these guys are Latter-day Saints. Why not just give it a rest? Romney is not going to run again, so who even cares? Why the constant bringing up of Romney? Is it fun just to make fun of others? What a pathetic bunch.

    Really? Time to get over Romney. Like this even matters. You guys need something better to do.

    Ugh, if Alex Boye is going to get all this attention, he should of posted a video showcasing more of his talents. Look him up, people, he's great!

    OMG...this is so unpresidential for our president to be doing this.

    I hope he can dance better than he can sing "America The Beautiful". Otherwise the late night comics will be in a ratings race.

    He's probably thinking this can help him with the youth vote. Epic fail!

  24. Romney is STILL NOT My Hero

    His dancing horse could have done a better job. Plus, I smell another run in 2016.

    Dancing Horse/You People/Token Black Kid/Gangnam Style 2016!

    Romney has been successful at everything he has touched except winning the presidency. If this country had had the brains to elect him we'd be on the road to recovery instead on the road to financial and political disaster.
