(Gawker)   "Gangnam Style" becomes the first YouTube video to reach 2,000,000,000 views. Let's all travel in the Way Back Machine to those carefree days of yesteryear, all the way to late 2012 and watch it again for the first time   (gawker.com) divider line 88

I will forever love that video for the Ai Weiwei and Anish Kapoor versions.

Aliens are probably watching this and thinking they should avoid us at all costs.

smug factor: 10/10

/11/10 would have been saying you've never watched any youtube video.

The song is terrible on an epic scale, but damn it if I don't love the video.  The ridiculousness of it all just makes me smile.

Oh, and also blue shorts yoga girl makes my pants fit funny.

I assume those showing so much disdain for the song would rather a Bieber video had been the first to a billion or two views

/love the video

There's no possible chance I would ever watch that trash.

Never actually watched or heard it before today. Not my usual cup of tea but I have to admit I can see why it was catchy

That is No Hong-cheol, a famous entertainer in SKor. He's primarily known for his work on children's programs.

THAT is what makes it weird.
 
2014-05-31 04:38:59 PM  
I can't believe people watch that terrible trash as opposed to me who knows that if it's been enjoyed 2 billion times by dozens of cultures than it has to be crap, utter crap only for the lowest common denominator even though I haven't seen it.

There wasn't really a solid summer jam in 2012, so Gangnam Style just came out of nowhere and solved our summer jam drought crisis.

The Lo Pan/Big Trouble in Little China parody of it was good.

So you're saying my 10 year old son is an asshole? Why dont you go kick some puppies? Or maybe torture some kittens? Or would you rather pick on the cerebral palsy kid?

4Minute's latest music video. They're all pretty dang cute.

I first heard about it via "Klingon Style".

Nothing will top the Deadpool version:

Not only is Deadpool a perfect character for this. The cameo in the middle of the video had me in stitches.

It was so good, Marvel referenced it in a cover:

Sure thing. You might also check out 2NE1 if you like 4Minute. The second song, "Come Back Home" is haunting.

So it's actually pretty amazing that I have resisted watching the video and have, in fact, never seen it (outside of a few short clips on various shows).

I don't feel like I'm missing anything. I've seen plenty of the imitators, and was pretty much done by the third one ("Gandalf Style" if I'm not mistaken).

Who here first heard of "Gangnam Style" thanks to "A Nightmare on Facetime"?
 
2014-05-31 05:54:25 PM  
It still makes me chuckle.  Music videos have needed to take themselves less seriously for a long time, it's great having someone so brilliantly self-aware like Psy poking fun at himself.
 
2014-05-31 06:06:45 PM  
Romney Style was pretty amusing.
