I wasn’t going to post this, but I think it is way too amazing not to. Even my non-Korean co-workers love it, so I think the whole world should enjoy this video too. Or at least the few of you that will end up reading and watching this.
I was originally going to post this a few days ago, but I haven’t had the time. I guess its good that I waited because the other day, the video was on CNN for going viral. The video now has almost 16 million views in almost three weeks. People like T-Pain and Josh Groban have even tweeted about it (yeah, they’re not that important but still).
Besides the amazing cameos in the video, the video itself is an art piece. All the different location shots, Psy‘s humor, the dance, and the cinemaography of everything is so fantastic. I don’t think I can count the number of times I’ve seen the video already. I love that Korea is making amazing things like this in both music and film, although I do hate kpop right now. Korea’s entertainment industry is growing aesthetically and sonically at a ridiculous rate and I can’t wait to see where it goes.
