Day #217: Psy – “Gangnam Style”
Yesterday, my Number 2 sent me this video. At first, I thought it was some bizarre find from the personal video vault of pretty much any North Korean statesman. You know, something they’d do in secret on their days off. But actually, it’s from South Korea, by a guy named Psy. And it’s called — say it with me — “Gangnam Style.” Basically, it’s a social satire, but saying it like that is liable to create buzz kill when you’re listening to something fun and danc-y like this. But when you tell your friends about it, be sure to say Gangnam Style with big, exaggerated air quotes like you’re trying to explain “World Wide Web” to a 90-year person who has never used a computer, because it got mention twice on BuzzFeed today, which in the Internet world, already makes it old news.
Oh, if only Mad TV were still around for a Bobby Lee parody.
