Video: 'Firefighter Style,' 'Gangnam Style' parody

The Pa. firefighters do their own rendition of viral South Korean hit

By FireRescue1 Staff

PITTSBURGH, Pa. — Video shows Pa. firefighters performing their own rendition of the viral South Korean hit "Gangnam Style" by PSY.

The South Baldwin Volunteer Fire Company firefighters reenact the hit video in full gear with their own firefighting tweaks, dancing atop their firehouse and fire truck, performing a fake car extrication and spraying their fire hoses.

The firefighters made the video in honor of Fire Safety Month, reminding viewers to be mindful of cleaning chimneys and furnaces and checking smoke alarm batteries.

Jason Johnson Jason Johnson Tuesday, October 16, 2012 12:07:44 PM My fire Rescue class is working on this dannce, as well but excluding any of the sexually provocative dancing. I think this is very well done but steps over a lot of boundries. The dances they chose to do now reflect bad on the rest of us.

Austin Brake Austin Brake Tuesday, October 16, 2012 2:42:39 PM Very inappropriate...paid or volunteer does't matter.
Terry Handel Terry Handel Tuesday, October 16, 2012 4:11:43 PM I bet a paid Department would have had disciplinary actions for this video...... *shakes head*
Terry Handel Terry Handel Tuesday, October 16, 2012 4:12:04 PM Oh, and this video was just awesome!
Kim Strniste Kim Strniste Tuesday, October 16, 2012 4:12:32 PM Awesome, still lmao
Terry Handel Terry Handel Tuesday, October 16, 2012 4:13:12 PM You must be one of those guys with no sense of humor and always reprimanding your subordinates if they're not acting like mindless automatons.
Terry Handel Terry Handel Tuesday, October 16, 2012 4:15:01 PM And another reason why society needs a better sense of humor. We're too dang sensitive these days... sad really.
Raymond Porter Raymond Porter Tuesday, October 16, 2012 4:34:26 PM Leave it to the fire fighters to come up with a new and better method each year to get the Fire Prevention Week message out to the public. These guys should be commended, and it is FUNNY AS HELL! Of course I only had 25 years as Chief of Department to form this opinion.
Jollene Alexander Pechin Jollene Alexander Pechin Tuesday, October 16, 2012 4:57:13 PM I thought it was awesome! I would loved one of my neighboring companys to do something like this!

Stephanie Cottingham Jennings Stephanie Cottingham Jennings Tuesday, October 16, 2012 8:02:36 PM All I can sayis awesome! lol shake it boys!
Austin Brake Austin Brake Tuesday, October 16, 2012 8:43:13 PM Not upholding a professional, positive image of one's dept and the fire service is inappropriate. I'm all for having fun but this should have been kept internal.
Steve Dean Steve Dean Tuesday, October 16, 2012 9:34:16 PM what city
Robin Wronski Robin Wronski Tuesday, October 16, 2012 10:04:01 PM Can you say awesome? C' was very creative and had me laughing. :) I don't live anywhere near them, but I am donating to their house! They get an A+ from me. :)
Aaron Harwood Aaron Harwood Wednesday, October 17, 2012 4:46:16 AM g.c's
Jason Jones Jason Jones Wednesday, October 17, 2012 5:57:45 AM Well,,,, I guess the production was pretty good, way to many homo overtones. You can see the volys budgets have not been hit like most the country's paid depts. I give it a 8.
Steve Dean Steve Dean Wednesday, October 17, 2012 8:13:05 AM lol
Jonica Gravitte Potts Jonica Gravitte Potts Wednesday, October 17, 2012 9:07:47 AM awesome

Alex Perez Alex Perez Wednesday, October 17, 2012 12:34:26 PM Made my day.
Terry Handel Terry Handel Wednesday, October 17, 2012 1:02:51 PM Regardless of who does what, there's always going to be some one saying everything a dept does is a bad image anyhow. What's the difference anymore. Have fun, live life... stop being a robot. Hell, Disney's shows are more inappropriate these days than what they just did..... seriously.
Kerri Pring Kerri Pring Wednesday, October 17, 2012 1:44:34 PM Awesome video! Certainly getting the message world from New Zealand and have sent it to all my mates! Well done boys, I don't think you have acted unprofessionally at all, it's good to see people in the Fire Service can still have a bit of fun in this PC gone mad world! :-)
Ray Pratt Ray Pratt Wednesday, October 17, 2012 2:02:22 PM Greetings from Australia. Well done guys. Lots of funny talent.

Mel Maguire Mel Maguire Wednesday, October 17, 2012 6:59:32 PM It was only a matter of time before some fire crew somewhere did this. I wouldn't use my city's equipment for it and I certainly wouldn't have posted it online, but it's no big surprise that it was done. It's cute.
Torched Medic Torched Medic Wednesday, October 17, 2012 7:08:58 PM I thought this was hilarious. Gotta have some fun, blow off some steam and really, its not hurting anyone or professionally damaging. Take is as the fun it is. I LOVED it!

Matthew Quinn Matthew Quinn Thursday, October 18, 2012 4:04:29 AM So you are going to begrudge Mr. Roder for having a job? He can't have an opinion that matters because he is from a small town? Please Steve go back to your hole.
Edward Rearick Edward Rearick Thursday, October 18, 2012 5:34:59 AM Loved it. Keep up the good work of spreading the fire safety message. Getting the attention of all ages means coming up with innovative ideas. This is one of them. Been doing this for 16 years and this is one of the best ways I have seen to get the attention of the younger crowd.
Carolyn Penney Carolyn Penney Thursday, October 18, 2012 1:10:11 PM Absolutely awesome, I loved it! What's better than a man in uniform? A fireman in half a uniform....LOL.
Matthew Quinn Matthew Quinn Thursday, October 18, 2012 2:41:33 PM You know, it's funny how there are people out there who think they are better than the world. I have met brothers from the FDNY, had very interesting converstaions with them. The biggest thing I got out of the converstaions is the statement that " [I was] no different then [them], just that we had different challenges facing us." Where he could count on one hand how many times he had drafted, and I not ever having used a high rise pack. We're all the same, we just have different challenges.
Jason Bieda Jason Bieda Friday, October 19, 2012 9:50:55 PM Ok Austin Brake you need to lighten up, there's worse out there than this. At least they weren't shooting this video makin racial slurs and every other word was a one of our favorite four letter words. GET OVER IT, its not your department.
Jason Bieda Jason Bieda Friday, October 19, 2012 9:52:14 PM "Gangnam Style"

Lane Alderfer Lane Alderfer Sunday, October 21, 2012 8:33:57 PM wow you guys! that was funny, but I love how you have the fire prevention tips at the end. it definitely catches attention of the public and gives safety instructions in the event of an emergency. I wish my fire company would be that spirited. sometimes I am the only one dancing in my bunker gear!

Mat Myatt Mat Myatt Thursday, October 25, 2012 1:17:48 PM Good job to these guys, a very fun and unique way to raise awareness and get a good message across for Fire Safety Month. Professionalism comes in all shapes and sizes, these guys maintained a positive message and representation of themselves and their department. That's just my take on it.
Jennifer Sieracki Jennifer Sieracki Thursday, October 25, 2012 3:25:54 PM this video should win something! channel 95.5 in detroit, michigan had a contest for the best gangnam style video (prize was 1,000 and a new I phone 5), you guys would of totally won!

Jerry Montgomery Jerry Montgomery Wednesday, October 31, 2012 11:47:45 PM This video has done wonderfully positive things for the fire service in the eyes of the young men and women who will follow in our footsteps. THANK YOU.
John R Eeten John R Eeten Thursday, November 01, 2012 10:03:44 PM Fire Prevention and Life Safety is our number one mission! With that said, if this helps to get the message out, and saves a life, this type of presentation works for me! Paid or Vollie, these Brothers have done the job, identified a way to get the message across by grabbing attention usig something popular, thus grabbing the youth, once again, probably saving a few lives in the process.
James Jacobs James Jacobs Friday, November 02, 2012 6:56:45 AM Lets see they claim they are 501c, the following is a list that costs money: class a foam, gas for both vehicles, Water to refill tank, equipment use, not to mention what if there had been an emergency. the town they protect should look into their dealings.
