Sorry if there was already a thread for this. If there is, i didn't see it.

But really, what do you think of the current gangnam style craze?

It's popularity is literally like another My little pony. EVERYTHING is getting used to parody it.

For me, the song itself is actually kinda fun, in the "Ding Dong Song" kinda way, while the video was fun at first but seeing it everywhere it's getting tired.

What's your take on it?

I'm still not entirely sure what it is.

The video/song or the obssesion with it?

If it's the first, it's just a song in korean(i think) in which the guy goes "HEEEEEY SEXY LADY!", accompanied by a video in which the guy does some ridiculous dance moves, apart from other things like fawning over a random girl's ass.

At first I hated it as it was so... ridiculous. But after watching some vids I' ve started to find it funny (and still ridiculous) and some japanese girls dancing it are so cute ;).

I was amused at first but now it's annoying.

I see people talking about it on the my facebook but have no idea what it is. Its the same for other fads, I have no idea what it is until way later. Like Rebecca Black for example, I had no idea what the hell this friday crap was until a friend showed me.

That was my initial reaction when a friend of mine posted it on skype. You' ll eventually watch many of these videos believe me.

Especially that certain move they do with their hands is so hilarious!

You don't even have to listen to the music lol, it's all about the video.

It's a good song to play Halo: Reach Firefight to.
#17 Posted by IdioticIcarus (2242 posts) -

I quite enjoy it.

I thought it was amusing at first but people have killed it at this point

It's a shame Itaewon Freedom didn't get the same attention.

From what I've read and watched from Korean expat bloggers K-Pop is in it's own world. It doesn't really follow Korean standards ie the revealing clothing would not go down well, showing any cleavage is a big no-no in Korea.

I actually find the song quite catchy so I honestly don't mind that much.

#21 Posted by xWoW_Rougex (2765 posts) -

Cool song but the video is so awesome so I don't mind it. The guy in the elevator is possibly one of the best things my eyes have ever witnessed.

#22 Posted by Chicken453 (2038 posts) -
It's awesome. But you've just got to have a sense of humor and not be a killjoy.
#23 Posted by shadowkiller11 (7956 posts) -
It's alright I hate that sort of club pop bubblegum music it irritates me but I guess the video gave it an awesome novelty vibe so I can withstand it when it's on or in a club.

I like the song and video but the craze is getting a bit over the top
#26 Posted by Postmortem123 (7704 posts) -

It's pretty annoying, and so are the people who listen to it.

#27 Posted by Slow_Show (2153 posts) -

It's an enjoyable meme that will be completely overused/referenced/what have you, just like every other meme that manages to attract a bit of popularity? I look forward to Billy Crystal referencing it in the opening monologue of the 2015 Oscars.

Outside of the ocassional GIF, I haven't seen much of it.

#29 Posted by firefluff3 (2073 posts) -

it's great, something to actually join in on instead of just laughing at. I went to eurogamer and Intel done a dance-off with it... i'm not entirely sure why.

#30 Posted by MannyDelgado (1250 posts) -
Just another worthless piece of crappy pop music
#31 Posted by PinkiePirate (2087 posts) -

I love it.

It's an okay-ish song with an okay-ish tune which people are obsessing over because the guy says things they don't understand and the video is somewhat random.

#35 Posted by Sajo7 (14049 posts) -
I still find it amusing.
#36 Posted by NiKva (8768 posts) -
Its old already :/
#37 Posted by Tylendal (14680 posts) -
There's no craze or anything. It's just a popular, funny song and video.

Its awful.

It's a funny video, but as someone who doesn't really like much out rock, I don't like the music.
#41 Posted by Bloodseeker23 (8338 posts) -
It's pretty fun doing it when you fool around with friends.
#42 Posted by aaronmullan (33406 posts) -
I'm pretty ignorant to it all actually. I know what the dance is like, but that's about it.

I second this

The song is pretty good (though I don't understand it) and the video is pretty beast. It's fun.

I'm really confused as to how it got so popular so quickly. The song is kind of catchy, but I was really surprised to see so many parody videos of it before I even knew about the original, considering how much I lurk. >_____>
