Cogito ergo cogito
I feel like it took too much time pointing out the obvious irregularity present in the video and not presenting enough of its own.

I feel like a lot of the original Gangnam video's popularity was just "lol, Asians are insane", which seemed to be deflated by hearing the explanation "this video is crazy because Psy wanted it to be as silly as possible".

We Koreans pride ourselves for insanity. Silliness, on the other hand, not as much. tongue

I see the Awesomeness.
So the Korean motto is "Sanity is for the weak!"?

I don't know, I think it is more of "Let's wreck some shit!"

So it looks like Gangnam Style has cracked the top ten viewed videos on youtube. Impressive.
Uh the fundamental spirit of cooperation and unity that drives the human race is unconfirmed to be more efficient than random computer input

Just awesome like that
So CollegeHumor posted this up about an hour ago. Arguably, it's more in the spirit of the original song that most parodies.
Insert witty and clever quip here.

I don't think I'd put Gangham Style on my iPod, but it is fun to turn up the bass to in my saucy minivan.

Uh. I was wondering what would be the 21th Century's Macarena. Here it is.
But they seem to know where they are going, the ones who walk away from Omelas.

This decade's, not this century's. There were plenty of macarenas before The Macarena.

ALL THROUGHOUT THE LAND, UP UNTIL THAT FATEFUL NEW YEAR'S DAY IN 2101, EVERYBODY DANCED THE "GANGAM STYLE." YEA, THEY DANCED MERRILY AND HAPPILY, CONTORTING THEIR BODIES IN A WAY THAT IT WAS THOUGHT ONLY KOREANS COULD PREVIOUSLY.

I keep hearing this here and there in my university.

I can't even imagine how it would be like in Korea.

To be honest, I don't get why the video is supposedly so weird. It doesn't look much weirder than the stuff my teenage sister watches on Rage. About the only thing that set it apart is the distinctive dance.
Be not afraid...
It's not weird, it's just a catchy tune, an entertaining video, and an absence of understandable lyrics to subtract from the experience of pure pop-cultural revelry. Plus almost anyone can do the dance reasonably well.

How are the lyrics not understandable?
I don't need praise, I need help.

[up]Because some people don't know Korean?
