MANILA, Philippines - Who says New Year celebrations can't be fun without firecrackers?

Certainly not Health Assistant Secretary Eric Tayag, who spearheads the DOH #IwasPaputok campaign by dancing Gangnam-style in various schools and drawing attention to other ways to welcome 2013. Doing it like Psy being one of them. 

"Magpost po kayo ng inyong mga tips for a safer #NewYear or show the nation your version of #Gangnam #IwasPaputok and let us #DOH it together," tweeted Tayag via @erictayagSays last week.

"Maraming Salamat sa mga tweets ninyo sa #Gangnam #IwasPaputok ng #DOH. Layunin naming maging Masaya at ligtas kayong lahat sa Bagong Taon."

Tayag has previously used his talent on the dance floor to call attention to malaria, dengue, and HIV, among others. A quick search of video sharing site YouTube.com reveals that he has shimmied and swayed to Shakira's "Waka Waka (This Time for Africa)," One Direction's "What Makes You Beautiful," and Nicki Minaj's "Super Bass."

Check out the video below to see him dance to the South Korean hit.
