It's still pretty good, but I swear there is some kind of nefarious plot afoot to ensure that this song never gets unstuck from my head!

Weakest foley work ever.

Hey sexay ladies... Klingon Style.

Psy, in the original Klingon.

(And, having seen it without music, the Klingon video makes sense).

Now I know what kind of video to do for my ambient project when I get signed to a major label!

Hey that's a pretty cool vid. Someone should lay down some music on that.

VWEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!

all videos should have this sound whenever there's hair a-blowin' or a hurricane of fake snow

I thought the weak foley really worked in its favor, at least in the sense of mildly simulating psylocibin induced weirdness. Also managed to crash my browser for the first time in a while.

In conclusion, I give this video a B-

I like it. Even just for the atmospheric sound effects. Was it just me or was anyone expecting a fart sound when the camera zoomed in on the girls behinds... ok it was just me... :(

I think that's the first time I've really watched that video, instead of before where it was sort of happening in front of me... it's really weird isn't it?

Hey sexay ladies... Klingon Style.

Put the captions on...

Oh and apparently the original vid is getting like 10 million views a day at the moment.

That's pretty awesome... I also rather enjoy the ComPSYlation of elevator scenes.

I thought this was brilliant - it completely encapsulates the hollow, vapid quick-edit distraction ethos of today's modern culture. The ambient sound only serves to heighten the void within - the lack of content, context and relativity to any historical narrative.

oh fuck it - HEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEY SEXY LADY! OH OH OH OH SEXY GANGNAM STYLE!

After watching this video, I was much more aware of the small noises my everyday actions make.

Psy has brought me to a new level of existence.

Amazing how removing the music changes the video from wonderfully ridiculous and fun to just plain weird and kind of dumb.

How bizarre it must have been shooting each of those little vignettes...'today for work I put on comical sunglasses and stood up and shook my hips in a boat. For 34 takes.'

I'm about Gangnam'ed out. I'm not tired of the original song and the video, but all the side commentary, lip dubs, rehashes, wacky dance videos and parodies from people wanting to attach themselves to this cultural phenomenon are getting on my nerves.

I gotta say the ending made me LOL. A good idea and well-executed. I give it an A.

Seems less weird than what I do: spend 12 hours banging my head against a brick wall only to finally realize at the eleventh hour that I need to remove 34 lines of code to make things work.

Friend: So you did negative work?
Me: pretty much.


Pass the comical sunglasses. You can't get much more absurd than software.

I like the fact that at 57 seconds, the tattoo sauna guy seems to be wearing shoes.

It's everywhere. Gangnam Style is everywhere. Number 2 on the US billboard chart. Probably number one on the UK singles chart tomorrow. 300+ million YouTube hits. Parodies being created so quickly you can't keep up with them. Or avoid them.

What's the solution? Don't know. Perhaps escape to the bottom of the ocean till it all blow over.

Or maybe not...

Of course the music video was vapid. That was the point. We've already established this.

Psy approves.

Glad to see the guy seems to have a good sense of humor about himself.

I was away from most of the Internet for 2 weeks and missed the advent of Gangnam. Just watched the original today.

(a) "Gangnam" sounds a lot like "condom."
(b) I wouldn't do that pony dance if I knew someone was filming me.

Just have to drop this rather Gaga-esque K-pop rap video in here: G-Dragon - One of a kind

He shouldn't have taken out the music on the part where Psy is on the bus with all those older women (ajummas) because singing and dancing on buses is a thing that ajummas actually do! Example 1 and Example 2, and here is a blog post by someone who experienced this herself.

@beekept: he removed the entire music track. The music you hear at the end isn't him inserting the audio back in. It's actually playing in the club where they're dancing.

It would still appear to be a rather popular song in South Korea.

To say Romney has style is like saying The Robot is a respected dance.
