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.

    Obama voters laugh at Romney in desperation to feel better about Obama.

    Romney would have made a farrrrrr better president than the current community organizer in chief and his band of amateurs.

    If would have taken a brain dead moron to vote for this guy. His tax code, 1.8% too tax rate, but wait, we'll offset that by closing loopholes. His use of this word was intended to make you think that was the rich and big business he was going after, in fact it was your average joes mortgage interest deduction, and employer's healthcare contribution. Those are loopholes to him, the tax breaks the rich and big business get are deductions.

    Lets all hope Romney runs again just to ensure the GOP and the 1%ers aren't making decisions on behalf of the American people.

    Mitt isn't a bad guy, he simply isn't the right guy for right now.

    Romney is STILL NOT My Hero

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

    He dances not all that different from a 90+ year old Abe Vigoda in a wombat costume while two hot chicks helped him stay standing. Don Gordleone approves...

    Are people really bashing Mitt and pro Obama on here? I am assuming each person on here that is pro-Obama is receiving welfare. Thanks Obama for making it easier for people to receive money and not work. POS

    @ Christopher M..Short memory Chris, Al Gore already schooled us on the Macarena.

    Low, uninformed voters reside in mostly red states, spending their days watching FAUX News or listening to uneducated radio talk show hosts. What does a guy like Boss Hogg bring to the table in terms of real world work experience, expertise in the subjects to which he speaks or education? NADA! Eating too many donuts, looking for more wives or taking illegal drugs don't count!

    Alcohol usually helps white people dance, but I doubt if it could help Mittens.

    You have to feel for GOP/tea party losers. Obama will be around for awhile and then they'll have to deal with Hillary. lol

    He doesn't have it so bad. The American people are back to carrying his tax burden for the rest of the Romney clan's life.

    Thank God we didn't end up with a nerd like him.

    Romney is doing everything he can to make it seem like he has a bit of "soul". Its not working though. He is soulless.

    Mitt would have turned to economy around months ago. The DOLT in chief has no idea how to lead and what is important.

    He must not have seen the "Mitt Romney Style" parody that College Humor made during the election. Check it out on YT. Hi-larious.
