GANGNAM STYLE:

This is like the Asian version of "Sexy and I know it"/"Party Rock Anthem"
Everything is Possible.

But somethings are more Probable than others.
This video raises so many questions:

Why is he in a stable of horses?

What caused him to spit out his soda?

How did he get on top of the building?

Why are he and an old lady being covered in coconut flakes?

How and why did one of the Beatles become Korean?

If only I spoke the language, these mysteries might be solved.

The lyrics don't really have much to do with the video, actually...

Gangnam Style is like a way of being and the only way to get there is to not think about it so much.

My brother showed me this, he said that this video can be used to double your videogame skills.

"The song is characterized by its strongly addictive beats and lyrics, and is thus certain to penetrate the foundations of modern philosophy."

OH GOD WHAT
Go play Kentucky Route Zero. Now.
Aaaaaaand, they've already made a sequel.

I think it's too soon for a followup, I still haven't figured out the profound philosophical meaning of the first one. (Also, youtube embedding doesn't want to work.)

EDIT: Figured out the embed

The guy in the cowboy hat doing the pelvic thrust in the elevator looks like he jumped straight out of an anime.

Or he was rotoscoped and placed in many different anime.

[up]That's pretty much the only thing that comes to mind when thinking of the video or the song.

Pretty much Pitbull in Korean. 0/10.
Dubstep isn't some catch-all term that mean "anything that goes 'wub'". It has an actual definition.

But his videos and songs are more entertaining than Pitbull's.

I haven't listened to a Pitbull song or watched one of his music videos, so I can't really comment on that.

[up][up]YMMV

EDIT: I guess it's not as bad as I originally thought. Still not good, though.

...Despite that, I'm thinking of remixing this just for the heck of it.

I think the best part is that any looping or cut is completely undetectable.

Also that it's 15 minutes long.

I don't care if the song is good or not, the videoclip is hilarious and entertaining, it reached the news from all the globe (at least in Spain was in the News)
They hit harder, but you can always get up. They don't
