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.

    Why is this here? This has no relevance other than Romney is listed on it, and he isn't even running for anything at the moment.

    > Is this the dude that ran for president? I pity USA.

    What's wrong with a human being having a little fun? It's not like he's out there condemning gays from the winter Olympics or terrorizing and threatening people with religious quotes and dynamites. Relax, smile, and live a little!

    Don't really understand why this is posted. All of us assume that their are times when even Mitt likes to have fun. So this is ridiculous under politics as it has no bearing (even remotely) to anything.

    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.
    Actually, financial and political disaster is exactly why he lost. The Ryan Plan didn't balance the annual budget for at least three decades. Romney was a tough talking, war monger. The last time we had a Republican in the White House his terms ended with the cremation of 8 million jobs in a year's time, a wrecked global economy, and two never ending wars.

    @ Ann....Thankyou for you comment to Gurgyl.....he seems to be continually uptight. Remember Al Gore and the Macarena? Same deal. How awful?!

    Mittens' dance card is, of course, platinum.

    Laws protecting your 401 k were enacted in large part, because of bain Capitol taking workers retirement funds. When a man takes advantage of the lack of rules, and enriches himself at the expense of others may make him rich, but not morally inline with what he preaches when he wants your vote. This man is truly disgusting

    Mitt Romney, proving once again he is completely disconnected from young Americans.

    Mitt Romney is what this nation needed but no, once again the low, uninformed voters wanted to keep their food stamps, phones, and for God sake not work. Look at the statistics. More blacks with four to five kids with NO DADDY TO PAY THE BILL. What happens to these kids....DUH! food stamps, government aid, give to me, give to me....I'm black. Marriage is where two (2) usually the same (2) people raise children to become productive parts of society. Not takers.....but this world ... thanks to Obama, Hillary, etc is going down the tubes.

    Lied so much, the CEO of the company had to spend money on airtime to make public disclaimers, even asked his campaign to stop lying about them: but oh no, not going to be burdened by the truth, this is the presidential election, no place for honesty. How do you justify voting for these crooks? I would seriously like to know.

    He is American citizen Mitt Romney, he can do whatever he likes!! Of course, he were to ever be nominated President of the U.S. surely he would have the decency not the joke about missing WMD's while American soldies sacrificed life and that would be distasteful.
