Could Andrew WK be the United States’ long sought after cure to the problems aching the Middle East? Probably not, but the State Department did recently charge him as “ Cultural Ambassador” to the region (!)

As his website reports (via Pitchfork), Andrew will travel to Bahrain in December, where he’ll visit “elementary schools, the University of Bahrain, music venues, and more, all while promoting partying and world peace,” but of course.

As Andrew states:

“This is a tremendous invitation. I’m very thankful to the Department of State for giving me the opportunity to visit a place I’ve never been before. And I feel very privileged and humbled by the chance to represent the United States of America and show the good people of Bahrain the power of positive partying. I can hardly wait for this adventure!”

In the meantime, let’s all watch video of Andrew do some yoga.
