Psy and his Gangnam style are starting to get ridiculous. The song's catchy, the video is fun, and the dance is strangely hilarious--but enough with all the parodies and video remixes already.

If you're tired of seeing humans do the horsey dance, then maybe CHARLI-2 doing the Gangnam style is more up your alley. In case you haven't heard of him yet, CHARLI-2 is a robot that was built by the Virginia Tech's College of Engineering's Robotics and Mechanisms Laboratory. It also happens to be the U.S. Navy's 'forerunner for creating a Shipboard Autonomous Firefighting Robot'.

That sounds like a big reputation to live up to. So to get rid of the pressure and unwind, what does the CHARLI-2 do? Dance Psy's crazy jig like there's no tomorrow. And it looks like he's able to pull it off, too.

Check out the video above to see for yourself!
