RE: What the hell is Gangnam Style?
Gangnam Style HAS produced plenty of wonderful gifs, though.

I feel very out-of-the-loop. Yet I'm strangely comfortable with that. Especially after catching a glimpse of what's in the loop.

I was, however, mildly amused by the videos. Mildly.
I caught Gangnam style cos it swept Asia a while ago and I invariably hear a muffled version emanating from the nearby clubs every night.

I can even do the dance.

But I'm with you on the others.
Plus I've never twittered/tweeted or facebooked.

I think this means we are largely meme-clean or meme-free.

I'm more than happy about that.

I heard that a Tosh.0 clip is gonna be on Tosh.0. He's gonna give him a web-redemption.

Extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence, DLJ.

Dude!

You are addressing an ex-semi professional dancer, I'll have you know.

25 years ago and 25 kilos ago, admittedly.

When I say semi-pro, it was between slacker trips to Paris where I was doing some aerobics stuff to earn a crust. Came back to England and for fun entered a dance competition. I won the heat and then a very sexy girl asked if I wanted to be in their "troupe". I didn't.
She said "there are 11 girls and no guys yet". I said, "when do I start?"

I even choreographed a duet with her, like a dance fight to Frankie's "Two Tribes".

Ah! the Eighties. Thems were the days.

I was on French TV (there was a local news camera crew there one day for the aerobics thing) but otherwise no documented evidence.

Soz.

If you're too scared to fork over the evidence, all you've gotta do is say so. Drinking Beverage

Not scared.

Just embarrassed.

Maybe you are too young to recall what dancers used to wear in the Eighties (lace, leather... body oil!)

I wouldn't want to give the TTA-teens nightmares.

No

South Park did a halloween episode where a bunch of people were dressed as Gangnam Style, and people I know in real life will randomly just go "Gangnam Style!" and start dancing. Then I saw a collegehumor parody called Mitt Romney Style and I had to youtube it. Gangnam Style has 644 million views. And I don't know why. Was it on a popular show or Tosh.0 or something? Granted it's a great video and dance, but 644 million?











Gangnam style is a popular song from Korea. I only know this because my boyfriend has shown me the videos. I don't get over 95% of what he is saying, but the song is rather catchy.

Yes, I like the song, too. I'm a big EDM fan, and that's a good track.

Heh. Uh, you do know that the song is in Korean, don't you?
