"Stop Instagramming your breakfast and tweeting your 'first world problems' and getting on YouTube so you can see 'Gangnam Style' and start using those precious social media skills to go out and sign people up on this baby, three people a week, let it grow. And don't forget, take part or get taken apart. Boy, these old coots will clean out the treasury before you get there."

- Former Sen. Alan Simpson (of Simpson-Bowles fame), in a new PSA for the Can Kicks Back campaign, an initiative to get young Americans to care about the debt. Besides sounding fluent in pop culture, the Wyoming Republican showcased his own "Gangnam Style" dance moves alongside a man in a giant can costume.
