I wouldn't want that kreepy Korean anywhere near my horses, thank you very much!

Like most modern 'music' and dance performers - irritating to the 'N'th.degree!

I can teach you with a quip, if I've a mind; I can trick you into learning with a laugh; Oh, winnow all my folly and you'll find, A grain or two of truth among the chaff!

One of the best hits, which came out in many years!

Αν ανάμεσα σ’ όλον τον κόσμο,
νιώθεις πως δεν υπάρχουνε λύσεις,
τότε μόνο δυο μάτια μπορούνε,
να σε κάνουν να θέλεις να ζήσεις.

Which shows more than anything else the flaw with Democracy: that the more popular something is, is by no means an indicator of quality. In fact, as in the case illustrated, the correlation is usually exactly the opposite. The more hits something gets on Yotube, or  if something makes the lucrative Christmas #1 slot on account of winning a TV Talent show, that's almost certainly a guarantee that it is, as in the case illustrated, crap.

Life is a hideous business, and from the background behind what we know of it peer daemoniacal hints of truth which make it sometimes a thousandfold more hideous.

Jeez.
So if a video is very funny, does that absolve anyone from blame for making, and forcing everyone to hear on the radio for months on end, utter garbage? Don't forget that this idiot is making lots and lots of lovely $$$ from forcing this crap on everyone.

747... land your plane already. It's just a parody song.

See here: http://en.wikipedia....i/Gangnam_Style

"Gangnam Style" is a Korean neologism that refers to a lifestyle associated with the Gangnam District[17] of Seoul,[18] where people are trendy, hip and exude a certain supposed "class". The term was listed in Time's weekly vocabulary list as a manner associated with lavish lifestyles in Seoul's Gangnam district.[19] PSY likened the Gangnam District to Beverly Hills, California, and said in an interview that he intended in a twisted sense of humor by claiming himself to be "Gangnam Style" when everything about the song, dance, looks, and the music video is far from being such a high class.[20]


People who are actually from Gangnam never proclaim that they are—it's only the posers and wannabes that put on these airs and say that they are "Gangnam Style"—so this song is actually poking fun at those kinds of people who are trying so hard to be something that they're not.
—PSY[21]

This has got "one hit wonder" written all over it.
Just because it's got a billion views dosn't mean it's everybodys cup of tea.
The same logic in my eyes applies to Harry Potter.
Tbh I think there's better things to watch on Youtube.
It's good for a belly laugh but that's all and I suppose the redheaded girl is cute.
But if it gives the general public what they want then go for it.
However I would rather shuffle than do it Gangham style.
Just call me an old stick in the mud.
