'LIPA Style' Video Chides Company's Storm Response

West Babylon radio station produces "Gangham Style" video parody.

Long Islanders are finding interesting ways to protest the Long Island Power Authority's recovery efforts following superstorm Sandy.

A video, created by Long Island radio station 106.1 BLI, uses a "Gangnam Style" parody to rip LIPA for its failure to have power fully restored to many area residents.

Thousands have remained without power since the storm struck Oct. 29.

The "Gangnam Style" video craze was made famous by a Korean rapper Psy. Parodies have been especially popular on college campuses in 2012.

The Linemen are not to blame here, they follow orders and do the work allocated to them by management. If anyone is to blame at LIPA, it's management, who should have learned a lesson when Irene hit us last year, but instead, kept cutting back on resources and manpower leaving themselves unprepared for a disaster on this scale. One of the managers already resigned and once Cuomo starts ripping LIPA apart, more will follow. LIPA serves the people of Long Island as its name implies and failed miserably to keep that vital service up and running. Those who made poor decisions, should get fired as someone needs to be held accountable. This is a prime example of what happens when a billion dollar corporation only thinks about numbers and puts money first ahead of the people they serve.
