UPI News Service, 01/01/2013 

An official in a British county has criticized teachers at a high school for creating a YouTube parody of South Korean pop star Psy's "Gangnam Style" video.

Peter Britcliffe, a local Conservative district and county councilor in Lancashire, England, said he feared the video created by teachers and staff members at Mount Carmel Roman Catholic High School in Accrington would cause students to lose respect for their instructors, The Daily Telegraph reported Tuesday.

The video depicts the teachers performing the dance moves from the video and recreating scenes, including one of men in a sauna clad only in towels.

"I am not a killjoy but I have looked at the piece, which is being discussed all over Accrington. It is the talk of the town's young people," Britcliffe said. "Having viewed it myself, while most of it is just good fun, there are parts of it certainly that might not improve the respect there should be between teachers and pupils."

Headmaster Xavier Bowers rejected the criticism.

"This kind of thing strengthens the relationship between teachers, pupils and parents who have given us an overwhelmingly good response. This is a spoof, like the one done by soldiers serving in Afghanistan," he said.
