Heroes can come from the most unlikely places – just take Psy. From unknown K-Pop rapper to worldwide meme fame – his crazy dance moves have been spreading like Lauffeuer. 

Psy is an inspiration to all of us – remember, chase your dreams, aim high and apply for one of our awesome jobs based in Berlin or go for our special London guest posting, but whatever you do, we strongly advise that you make it Gangam-style.
