having just been surpassed by, yes, Psy's insufferably inane Gangnam Style.

Just for that, I'm going to go watch a few more times.
 
2012-11-24 04:38:04 PM  
it had 300M+ views before i knew what it was. always late to the party.

It's farking funny. I love that video.. when they're dancing through that blown white stuff and the girls are kind of cowering from it, and it's flying in his mouth while he sings.

I did some research (googled) and found that the song is basically a parody anyhow, of a type of young woman in Korea who skimps on essentials so they can spend their money looking affluent.

I think I saw it around 50M or so. Early enough to qualify as hipster?

It's clear that was a first take. Watch the one on the left, she's clearly baffled by what the hell is happening and somewhat pissed off.

what's a Bieber?
 
2012-11-24 06:04:23 PM  
We've been cured of bieber fever! Unfortunately, we're still PSYchotic.
 
2012-11-24 06:10:44 PM  
Beiber is an annoying little shiat.
 
2012-11-24 06:13:23 PM  
I remember just a few months ago when it was barely at 300,000.

sniff. They just grow up so fast you know? At first you're sending a link to a couple buddies who are completely flabbergasted by it, then next thing you know everyone on the planet has heard of it and despises how overplayed it is.

Well....I guess that's good?

I found the making of video funnier.

at least it's not the cat saying 'oh long johnson"
you'd think that would have a billion views by now.
after south park showed that one episode
 
2012-11-24 06:36:36 PM  
Bieber had a baby? Didn't know she was really pregnant during Juno
 
2012-11-24 06:41:49 PM  
 
2012-11-24 06:49:45 PM  
That's because no one was rushing to show the Bieber video to the grandparents, unlike Psy.
 
2012-11-24 06:53:30 PM  
Crap, that's a lot of ad revenue.
 
2012-11-24 06:58:06 PM  
I saw the video when it only had 7 views. I knew about Psy before he became known in the US

The thing that you get from the video is that people are having fun. The choreography doesn't look like they hired Paula Abdul to do it which would suck all the life out of it, but that yeah, someone just got shown the moves on the day, and shiat got thrown in.

Oh, and the redhead girl in the hotpants. Yeah...

Exactly. "Gangham Style" is fun. Psy's clearly having a blast, and not taking himself too seriously. Compare that to a barely-pubescent Canadian kid rapping quite seriously about puppy love. (Also, can we blame Ludacris for inspiring Patrice Wilson to be all creepy in "Friday" and "Thanksgiving?" Because I kinda want to.) This is a justified viewership win, for once.
 
2012-11-24 07:13:33 PM  
I actually like that song. Yes I have been drinking. Why do you ask?

The girl in that video ... the one he meets on the subway ... is so ridiculously hot. I'm stunned every time I see her.

Me too. If you think Psy's inane and don't think Justin Bieber is too, you're a xenophobic retard.

\also, I always end up laughing my ass off when he starts screaming at the girl's ass

This too, plus she's a redhead. Even dyed that's a plus in my book.

her stage name is hyuna, a kpop idol. here's her latest music video.
 
2012-11-24 07:38:18 PM  
I don't get all this 'it's a fun video' nonsense.

Look at this shot - clearly a homage to Rodan's Thinker and reflective of the philosophy Nietzche pronounced, which spoke of Man vs Superman and Looking into The Abyss of an Empty Seoul.

And fun? If it's just fun, then why is MC Hammer involved?

I'm somewhat convinced, watching some of her other stuff, is that a decent amount of why she looks good to us is the Western makeup, especially accentuating her eyes. She doesn't look as good to me without the black around her eyes. Her actual music is incredibly inane, even by American pop standards.

Plus the song so damn addictive, even when you don't know what Psy is saying. I did go look up translations, and it's more appealing once you have an idea what he's saying.
 
2012-11-24 07:40:39 PM  
I like it becaude they look like they are having a blast. I just want to know how they got funding for that video.

Must have been one hell of a pitch.
 
2012-11-24 07:40:40 PM  
It's slightly ironic because they are now both managed by the same guy - Scooter Braun. At least, I think ironic is the right word. Scary might also suffice.
 
2012-11-24 07:41:17 PM  
I don't eat fast food, yet, I like this song. WTF is going on here?
 
2012-11-24 07:42:04 PM  
I'm just waiting for the first Youtube video to hit 1,000,000,000 views. That will be pretty damned amazing.

I think PSY is awesome and a refreshing change from the self-important dbags who infest the American pop scene.

Korean pop as a whole seems a lot more fun and interesting than the crap we get in the States.
I mean, this one song by Brown Eyed Girls is better than Niki Minaj's entire career.

And this song by UV is one of the funniest videos I've ever seen.

And they also seem interested in making videos like we used to in the 80s and 90s - strange weird videos. This one by Narsha plays like an old Kate Bush video. Bonus points for Freddy Krueger back up dancers.

And my current favorite.

There is nothing about Gangnam Style that is not good.

It's only taken Gangman Style a little more than 4 months to get 80% of the way there.
