Gangnam Style

A few weeks ago I came across this video from South Korean singer Psy, and I've watched it many times since then. It's pretty much the Platonic Ideal of Music Videos. A catchy song. A unique dance. Baby-faced, slightly pudgy singers somehow attracting every woman they come across. Humor. So, if you're offended by "sexy ladies" or people dancing like horses, this is probably not the video for you.

Otherwise, prepare yourself for GANGNAM STYLE!



On a side note, Krista and I went to the UC Berkeley fall retreat this weekend, where I was the Bible teacher and Krista did a talk for the women. We had a really great time, and met some really cool students and staff with Cru. I am not exaggerating when I say every student there knew this song. The dance happened more than once on stage. If you have college students, you should be aware of this song so you can be hip. I'd suggest that next time your college kid comes home, you start doing the dance and then shout OPA GANGNAM STYLE. Your child will not be embarrassed at all.
