CAMP BASTION, Afghanistan (CBS) -- British troops in Afghanistan have come up with their own version of the worldwide music hit 'Gangnam Style'.

Soldiers from 21 Engineer Regiment have released a music video spoofing the song by South Korean rapper Psy. The original has been viewed more than 970 million times on YouTube.

The troops from 7 Headquarters and Support Squadron filmed their own version "Afghan Style" over a three-month period during downtime and after work, with help from the British Forces Broadcasting Service in Afghanistan.

The idea behind the video is to help raise money for the Swaledale Mountain Rescue Team in North Yorkshire, England.
