It's time to address my love for PSY and Gangnam style



These are the things that I have to say about my new favorite song and video.  First and foremost, Psy is hilarious, and I cannot watch this video without cracking up.  Every time.  Second.  He's an awesome dancer!  I Love the part at the very end when you think the song's over but it isn't yet.  Third, I think the popularity of the dance has to do with how easy and fun it is to do.

But the other main reason why I totally love Psy is because every time he is asked in an interview about how he feels about his sudden extreme international fame, he always says something like, "I'm a 30 year old pudgy guy with two kids.  This is all totally amazing and I'm enjoying every second of it."

I have a thing about watching huge groups of people react to music.  It pretty much always makes me cry because it makes me feel so happy.  This video of Psy doing a concert in down town Seol with over 80,0000 people in the audience is the best.  I never thought hearing 80,0000 people yell "hey sexy lady," together could ever be so moving.  Plus it was a free show.  What a great guy.

  5. I love Psy! It's his commitment that get's me. I can totally understand the seeing crowds of people dance or get into music it is very moving. Did you catch him on SNL? The skit was hilarious!
