"Korean Idol singers get their G-20 on"

Via FP's Passport blog:

I don't believe that anyone in history has ever used the phrase "Y'all ready for this" in reference to a debate on exchange rates and monetary policy... until now.

The South Korean Presidential Commission for the G-20 Summit is currently hosting the above video on its YouTube Channel featuring Korean Idol contestants welcoming the world to Seoul with a blast of Black Eyed Peas-esque K-Pop.

I like the enthusiasm, but lyrics like "On and on and on, we're gonna party" make me think that South Korea is either overselling this summit a little bit or they've got something very interesting planned.
