FIRED?? More like promoted. To chief happiness officers! Whatever, El Monte. This is a adorable and awesome and I wish I swam wherever this is.
This Is All Kinds Of Wrong of the Day: A bunch of lifeguards in El Monte, CA, recently created this “Gangnam Style” video — but city administrators caught wind of it, and promptly fired them for “using the facility for private use and wearing uniforms in public while off-duty.”
The video was deemed ”disgusting” and an “embarrassment to the city of El Monte.”
Hey, uptight city officials — if U.S. soldiers in full uniform can get away with a “Call Me Maybe” cover while stationed in Afghanistan, wethinks the El Monte 14 should be rehired ASAP.
