Cambodia GangnamA video featuring 160 slum kids from a poor district in Cambodia’s capital Phnom Penh received almost 240,000 hits on Youtube as of July 7 after it was uploaded on June 27.

The video is a parody of South Korean singer Psy’s Gangnam Style in a project by French-Vietnamese filmmaker Jean-Luc Nguyen, who recently started the HumanCoop initiative that aims to help people connect with kids in need all over the world.

“This is an amazingly funny video. These impoverished kids live in extremely basic conditions but are full of talent and potential. We wanted to give them an opportunity to express themselves through an artistic and fun project. They didn’t disappoint us,” Ngyuen said.

“We are convinced that humanitarian aid should focus on giving children strength and confidence: a bit of help that will help them believe in themselves, give them hope for a brighter future and preserve their dignity under any situation,” he added.
