"Hey! Welcome to my bridge!" Koch exclaims over a Lady Gaga beat.

The sound byte is extracted from Mayor Michael Bloomberg's State of the City video.

The video features Bloomberg hopping into a livery cab bound for Morris High School in the Bronx and busting a move in the backseat to a Lady Gaga tune.

Koch makes a cameo in the video as Bloomberg journeys through the city by graciously greeting everyone as they cross his bridge, while uttering his signature phrase "How am I doing?"
