I know everyone has seen this video by now….but I am wondering what the fuck is Gangnam style?? I googled that shit. Apparently Gangnam is a city in South Korea. This got me thinking further. Is this PSY dude a legitimate pop act…like the South Korean equivalent of maybe….Lonely Island/ SNL?? Like the catchy pop star that doesn’t take himself too seriously? or is he more of a LMFAO kinda guy? How serious is this track?
I think he is the Korean equivalent of LMFAO. Gangnam Style is his “I’m in Miami Bitch”. It is catchy…and now it is going to be around forever thanks to the wonderful world of internet video. Psy is officially immortal. It may be his only hit..and if that is the case….if one hit wonders in Korea are anything like they are in America….this dude is gonna be knee deep in cocaine and balls deep in hookers until he rides his cashflow into the ground….at which time he will either OD or check into rehab for his first of multiple trips to a rehabilitation facility.
Then again if he is anything like LMFAO….he will continue to pump out track after track of money making, catchy music. Music that has you wondering “why can’t I get this song out of my fucking head?”….or…”I have heard this like 8,000,000 times….why do i still like this fucking song?”…..He could have an open substance abuse problem like Red Foo and SkyBlu. These guys would show up to morning show interviews super fucked from partyin straight through the night….still reeking of booze, blow, and cheap whores. Don’t get me wrong…I am not insulting them…I just wish I could party with them.
So what will it be PSY? Are you gonna have the staying power of LMFAO?….or the one hit wonder allure of Los Del Rio (those macarena mother fuckers)?
