'Gangnam Style' becomes most-watched YouTube video of all time
http://digitallife.today.com/_news/2012/11/24/15412830-gangn...

So, I thought, I need to check this out. How bad could it be?

I regret that:
4:13 minutes are gone forever.
What has been seen cannot be unseen.
What has been heard cannot be unheard.

Weird thing for me was, I saw the 'Klingon Style' parody (posted here, of course) before the original.

I think it's catchy and fun.

That being said, I'm a little tired of hearing it now.

I finally watched it a few weeks ago. And while I didn't hate it, I can't really see what the big deal is either.

It was teh right mix of production values, cheese, and catchy tune. I enjoyed its run and as the song became actually popular the vid has a crack at 1billion views.

I finally watched it from the NPR story link. I mostly agree, the video is campy and bizarre. Nothing new really especially considering much of the content that comes from it's neighbors a short hop across the sea. However I think it is so wildly watched because it is a "coolness" measuring stick. The earlier you watched (and commented to your friends) or did a parody the cooler you are. Something like the biggest inside joke that all the cool kids knew. Lame.

I've been very carefully rationing myself with this so that it still makes me smile just as much as it did the first time.

Agreed. Of course, I have the benefit of having several six-year olds dancing around my house trying to copy the lyrics (and dance moves). It greatly extends the amusement factor of the song and video.

It's fun, it's healthy, it's good exercise. The kids will just love it. And we put a little sand inside to make the experience more pleasant.

You know, they say there was a man who jumped from the forty-FIFTH floor? But that's another story...

I like it. However, the fact that it has gone ultra-mainstream makes it a little less enjoyable for me. The Today Show had Psy on their concert series with a million screaming fans. They can't stop talking about it. They talked about it today in fact, as if to say let's play it five more times just in case there are still one or two people out there on the planet who haven't seen it already. I liked it when I thought it was a special little discovery that I had made from a far-off exotic land. At this point it's gone beyond overexposure.
