Who would have thought it? Along comes a South Korean calling himself Psy, quite well known in his own country, but not really anywhere else. He puts a music video on you tube for his fans, and then it somehow becomes a worldwide hit. Like everyone else I first saw this on the internet, and I loved the video for this, but make no mistake this song gets into you, it is a meme, as Richard Dawkins would say.
You just cannot resist this song, or the weird and cheesy dance moves, and that is probably why it is so popular. The song is so catchy and fun to listen to, and at the same time you want to start dancing; on your iPod you have to resist the urge, and I expect if someone started dancing on their commute, soon many others would join in. With Christmas soon upon us and having the family around this is ideal to keep in reserve. If family disagreements break out, or you just want to liven things up, then put this on. From little children to the oldest adult you all will be dancing. It is great to find a song that is so big, that is not sung all in English, and is just such fun.
In the words of Psy 'Dress smart and dance cheesy'.
