Lifeguard Style (Gangnam Style Remake)
*ALL OF THESE LIFEGUARDS WERE FIRED FOR BEING IN THIS VIDEO.* Please read the description for the city's explanation for our terminations. Our Facebook page: http://www.facebook.com/BringBackEMAC14 Reasons for Termination: All footage was recorded off the clock during breaks and free time. The city manager OFFICIALLY fired us for using the facility for private use and wearing uniforms in public while off-duty. Afterwards we were UNOFFICIALLY told that our music video was both "disgusting" and an "embarrassment to the city of El Monte." We 14 were terminated due to "at-will" employment. People who did not participate in our video but were merely caught in the background were fired. One manager who did not appear in the video at all was also fired.
