Go To

  • Fan Nickname: Because of their horse-riding dance steps and the appearance of horses in the music video and artworks (like the main image), many people affectionately called Gangnam Style as the "Horse Dance".
  • Fountain of Memes: The video quickly became one in the Anglosphere thanks to its trove of memorably strange and comedic imagery. From full-video parodies to riffs on individual scenes to the horse-riding dance becoming synonymous with Memetic Mutation in the early 2010s, almost every part of the video became the subject of popular jokes online.

  • Signature Scene: The elevator scene.
  • Signature Song: By far PSY's best-known work, at least worldwide. In fact, this is one of the singles that have directed PSY through his Lighter and Softer path.
