Yes, readers, it's come to this. Framed, everyone's favorite misanthropic blog, is now kowtowing to popular opinion!
What a twist! What irony!
But we have to admit that even we're sort of wowed at PSY's massive viral success. His "Gangnam Style" -- this week's video, in case you were wondering -- was released in July and has been viewed over 414 million times on YouTube, and is the site's most watched K-pop video. It's also the most "liked" video in the history of YouTube. It's also #2 in America as of this writing.
PSY, whose real name is Park Jae-sang, is a comical rapper whose song about the Gangnam District in Seoul simply exploded, capturing the interest of everyone from T-Pain to Tom Cruise, who've shared it on the internet.
The Gangnam District is a sort of hoity-toity part of Seoul. The kind of place where they look down on you, readers! PSY isn't having any of it, though: he mocks the elite with his "invisible horse dance" and a variety of spastic moves that have proven irresistible to humans everywhere!
In fact, the video is so excellent that it's spawned a zillion parodies, some of them quite good. You've no doubt seen them. Now let's enjoy the original again, only this time with captions!
Oppan Framed, Gangnam style!
