Video Hits: Psy’s “Gangnam Style”

Gangnam Style

If you haven’t seen or at least heard of Psy’s “Gangnam Style”, what rock have you been living under? This video might be one of the hottest things on the planet, and it’s also one of the best music videos I’ve ever seen.

Addictive lyrics — check.

Tongue-in-cheek humour — check.

Ridiculous dance moves — triple check.

This video really has it all, and you won’t be happy watching it just once.

Maybe best of all, “Gangnam Style” has inspired lots and lots of parodies, so once you watch the real video, then head over and check out one of my other favorites, Deadpool vs Gangnam Style.

Video Hits is a semi-frequent spot featuring a new music video to admire, mock, and discuss. From the great to the awful, whether they’re from twenty years or twenty minutes ago. Check out the 2011 archives over at Vevo, and watch all the 2012 videos on YouTube.

For you Canadians out there, the title of this series is totally a tribute to CBC’s original 80s TV series, Video Hits.
