First Carly Rae Jepsen’s “Call Me Maybe,” now it’s “Gangnam Style.” “Glee” will continue to mine the latest in pop culture when the Fox musical covers global superstar PSY’s Internet phenomenon during an episode slated to air toward the end of November.
The series will take on the craze that’s been featured on everything from “Saturday Night Live” and “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” with a heavily choreographed routine that, at least on first glance, appears to be part of New Directions’ Sectionals performance.
