What if Psy’s “Gangnam Style” was a rain dance this whole time and we brought Hurricane Sandy on ourselves? That was a significant question being analysed on Twitter last night while the wind whipped windows and tore down trees.
If the rumours were true, then these two teens who trolled a newscast with the “Gangnam Style” choreography were just making it worse. The Norfolk, Virginia teens trotted behind the newscaster in the rain jackets, right in front of the ocean.
While some people thought their practical prank was insensitive, I think everyone needs to lighten up at the joke. One commenter replied to a naysayer: “I’m in a middle of a hurricane and I find this funny.”

Over 8500 lights and 250 channels of computer animation were used to create this Halloween light show to Psy’s “Gangnam Style.” It’s pretty impressive that the mouth is almost identically synched to the lyrics of the song. I’d love to see a Crank-style neighbour’s war between this showcase versus “This Is Halloween” light show. Who do you think would win?

I didn’t think Honey Boo Boo’s life could get any better. Then this happened.
I’m really curious to see what Canadian journalist Nardwuar asked Carly Rae Jepson. Call me maybe, perhaps?
Whoever made this balanced breakfast has a lot of time on their hands. I like it.
X-Men Gangnam Style
Soo this happened. Hugh Jackman teamed up with Psy to dress up as Wolverine. I really, really hope this evolves into an epic nerdy version of Gangnam Style.
365 reasons why…
Aww. Somebody has a really thoughtful girlfriend (apparently with an intense love of rainbow assortments of paper). A woman wrote 365 reasons why she loves her boyfriend, including #19 that says “…you still love me when I’m being a crazy, overly attached girlfriend.”
Weather anchors are usually a little more quirky than their local news counterparts but this morning meteorologist from FOX 14 takes it to w whole new level with his off-air, freestyle rap. Nick Kosir spews out his own lyrics to “I’m a Weatherman” and performs it for the crew as soon as someone gives him his gangster glasses. Just as we think he’s rounding out he starts dancing to Psy’s “Gangnam Style,” because everyone knows if you haven’t danced to the hit while someone’s filming then you’re missing out on life.
If “Gangnam Style” singer Psy specifically wanted to see me mimic his trademark horse-riding moves, I’d be flattered. Ryan Seacrest on the other hand, was all nerves, putting off Psy’s invitation to dance at every possible moment. Ryan, WHEN PSY SAYS DANCE, YOU DANCE. Have some respect, man.
After Seacrest’s interview with the Korean singer, he wouldn’t join in when staff members and guests like Rita Ora performed the choreography alongside Psy. Don’t worry though, eventually the power of Psy’s “Gangnam Style” takes over and Ryan pays his due.
The video was posted on Seacrest’s YouTube page, which also includes an interview in which Psy talks about offering dance lessons to Usher.

I thought we were done with these mashups? Psy’s “Gangnam Style” has become one of THOSE songs. You know, one of those songs that must not be named and that plays on the same playlist as “Call Me Maybe” and “Macarena.” The type of song that comes on and 80-year-olds are like “What is that diddy?” while the hip young-ins sit down and roll their eyes.
The only redeeming factor is that the mashup is with the theme for Ghostbusters. So yes, I’ll listen to it. It’s actually the perfect tune for Halloween.
I don’t know what this kid’s problem is. When my mom planted a cup of chocolate pudding in front of me as a baby, I was done. It was pudding carnage.
In this hilarious video, a dad uses the power of “Gangnam Style” to feed his crying baby. The little one immediately stops crying once Psy’s classic hit begins to play. Honestly, is there anything this song can’t do?
Since a huge portion of the Internet is devoted to cats like Olive, Mittens, Puffy, Niko, and General Bonkers, they participated in this “Gangnam Style” survey to see if Psy’s message relates to fluffy (or sometimes not fluffy) kittens. Thanks Noisey.
How’s this for school spirit? A student at Northwest Cabarrus High School in Concord, North Carolina performed Psy’s “Gangnam Style” at a pep rally. He replicated the moves perfectly, even inspiring some football players to mimic the horse-trotting sequence.
I’d hate to be the team that goes against them.
With the video reaching close to 400 million hits, it’s pretty safe to say that Gangnam Style is a song for the ages.
In this clip displaying how elderly people feel about PSY, his music and his crazy dance moves, it’s pretty clear that they’re digging it as much as we are!!
Just watching their reactions are absolutely priceless. While I can’t name a favourite quote from the video, one that sticks out is, “It sounds like he said Condom Style!!”
Proving once again that he is a genius, Ed Sheeran performed an impromptu song on the spot during a radio stint on the Damien Fahey show. Asked to sing about Fahey, Sheeran created a tune that mentioned poison ivy, Prius cars and even PSY’s ‘Gangnam Style’.
But even though Sheeran dubbed his jig “The Terrible Song,” we all know that isn’t true. As random it is, it is baffling to me how GOOD he makes it all sound.
Oh Ed, what a special place you have in my heart. You can sing terrible songs to me any time you want.
Now if only, we can get him to dance Gangnam Style!!
Psy brought 80,000 South Koreans together for his concert in Seoul. The free concert took place in the heart of the city for Psy’s homecoming. According to The Sun, he told his fans: “I did not get here because I was worthy of it. I’m here because of all of you. I’m just a fat man with two kids,” Psy explained to his legion of Koreans fans. “It’s a golden opportunity to show the world how well we Koreans play.”
My favourite comment on YouTube: “North Korea is like “what is this happiness I hear coming from the south??” — AznNerdNation
There are picky eaters who won’t eat pasta if it has any sauce on it (WTF) or who refuse to eat anything that isn’t organic. Then there are picky eaters like Benjamin. This baby won’t eat ANYTHING unless Psy’s “Gangnam Style” is playing in the background.
While I’m not sure the video — filled with dancers accentuating their asses and dancing around a dude doing the horse riding move — is entirely appropriate, I think the small price of corruption is worth it in the end since the kid is actually being fed.
Boy, Psy can really fix all problems can’t he?

We were all waiting for Pentatonix to put their a capella touch on Psy’s “Viral Hit” but we didn’t know they would be this pro about it. The quintet performed his viral hit, with Scott Hoying singing Psy’s versus in Korean and Avi Kaplan with Kevin Olusola on the backbeat.
The Texas group won the third season of The Sing-Off and have covered Nicki Minaj’s “Starships” and a Justin Bieber/Katy Perry mashup in the past. It’s a tough cover to do considering how many covers and parodies we’ve seen, but we love that they put their own spin on it.
Watch it here:
Although I’m growing tired of silly parodies of Psy’s “Gangnam Style,” I absolutely love this cover because (surprise) it actually does SOMETHING DIFFERENT to the song. Instead of just copying the music video, Berkeley’s Ra-On produced a slower, bluesey cover of the track.
Their version actually sounds soulful! The track, which was arranged by Seungjun Lee, features Michael Jun on the guitar and Jaydee Min, singing with Elle Kim. I wish they emphasized a little more of the “oppa” part but I still love it. I can imagine them performing in some after hours, smoke-filled piano bar.
Ra-On is a student organization at Berkeley University, meant to gather musicians who are interested in Korean rock music.

I know, I know. We write about Gangnam Style a lot. But who can blame us when the song is so catchy and PSY’s moves are contagious?
So in another installment of Gangnam Style videos, this witty person had decided to take the music out of the original and replace it with sound effects.
And I must say, it’s very realistic!
Unfortunately our non-existant efforts to persuade Bill Nye the Science Guy to cover Psy’s “Gangnam Style” have been futile and unsuccessful. So YouTuber AlexRMSTITANIC decided to superimpose Nye’s head onto Psy’s body and have them dance to a mashup of their two songs. The result is called “Bill Nye Science Style” and I must say, Nye and Psy make a good team.
Although the video is just over 30 seconds long, it’s the best 30 seconds of video you’ll see all day.

You know what we haven’t seen enough of over the last couple weeks? “Gangnam Style” covers. Because the 15 covers we posted a couple weeks ago just didn’t satiate our thirst for the over-played song. Now the Tampa Bay Buccaneers Cheerleaders and Captain Fear created their very own cover of Psy’s viral hit, dancing with their shiny, red pom poms while the mascot leads them all in their horse-riding pyramid.
We apologize in advance if this is the cover that finally sent you over the edge.
It was only a matter of time before a university marching band covered PSY’s hit “Gangnam Style” FTW. Ohio University Marching 110 is apparently pretty badass band considering they’ve also covered LMFAO’s “Party Rock.” The band touted their horns to the viral song and even lent their voices to obligatory “Gangnam Style” chants and a mini dance number near the end.
If you’re short on time today and you’re thinking, man I wish I could get my viral video fill without devoting a huge chunk of precious TGIF hours to the cause, then man do we have the video for you. This action-packed 11 seconds of video is definitely worth your time. Random, entertaining and certainly important. You could probably even watch it TWICE. It’s Star Wars meets Gangnam… literally.
