El Monte, Calif., Lifeguards Fired over Parody Lip-Synch Video

No "Gangnam Style" at this pool


El Monte city officials got more bad press this past weekend for firing 14 fun-lovin' lifeguards from their posts at the local Aquatic Center than for any other scandal in the city's history—including, debatably, that time ex-City Manager James Mussenden got caught trolling for hookers along Holt Avenue. (Heh.)

The lifeguards' crime was a bit more softcore. Using the city pool as a backdrop, they shot a lip-synced music video for "Gangnam Style"…
