...Because you're going to want to crank those speakers all the way up to 11.
I found this South Korean music video thanks to a tweet by Zachery Levi (aka Chuck) around 3 this morning, and was laughing out loud by the :40 mark. It's by turns hilarious, bizarre, and - dare I say it? - kinda catchy!
Although you should probably keep in mind those opinions were formed at 3 o'clock this morning. Hee.
Now I'm off to do the horsey dance all over the house, just to freak John out.
PS - According to a source quoted on Gawker, Gangnam is the upper-class region of Seoul, so the song is a kind of parody of rich celebs. But really, who needs trifling things like words or meaning with moves that smooth?
PPS - I feel like now we should all go watch Pon Pon Pon again. [evil grin]
8/15 UPDATE: You guys, there's also a *female* version of this song! And it doesn't sound like "open condom style" at all when Hyuna sings it. (Is that a plus, or a minus? Ha!) Her's sounds more like, "open dudna stein."
Fortunately this version still has lots of the original singer Psy in it, though, and he makes it just as mesmerizing as the original, if not as funny. (No horsey dancing 'til the 2 minute mark?! Aww...) Here, see for yourself:
Most of the comments I've seen tend to harp on Hyuna's "baby-voice" singing style, which I can understand - but it gets better as the song goes on, I think, and the dancing alone makes it well worth a watch. In the end, I like both versions, but only because of Psy. He's just plain awesome. What do you guys think?
Thanks to Chandler for finding this! (via Buzzfeed)
