Yes, Psy's single comes out tomorrow and The Guardian's making a big deal about it as usual

http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2013/apr/10/south-korea-psy-new-single

Psy couldn't have chosen a worse time IMO as, knowing some of the people back home's ignorance as I do, the appearance of a second fat-faced Korean in the media day after day will confuse them beyond all hope.

'What's going on, he's ditched the rocket idea and he's bringing out a single now? etc... etc....

Just like when the world famous astronaut/cyclist/musician admitted to steroid use and died. "What a Wonderful World" indeed.

it'll be big with his followers, but not as big as gangnam style -- not even close.

Dear North Korea,

Put a missile right on top of that concert and all is forgiven.

Thanks in advance.

What do you guys think of the new song? (Accompanying dance move to be revealed tonight.)

The Korean lyrics are catchy and simpler than “Gangnam Style”, probably with the South Korean rapper’s now wide fan base overseas in mind.

New video.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ASO_zypdnsQ&list=PLEC422D53B7588DC7&index=2

(Wow, it caught me off guard.)

The English sing along parts:

"I'm a motherf_ing gentleman.

Gonna make you sweat.

Gonna make you wet.

You know who I am."

The video is so sexual.

(I guess that's to appeal to American audiences. Sad )

I heard he was trying to say 'mother, father, gentleman.'

'I'm a motherf_ing gentleman' certainly wouldn't be played on, I imagine, a lot of English speaking media.

I particularly like the part where he wipes his arse with his hand in the library and gets a student to smell it. Real classy. I imagine a lot of Dave's posters will say that kind of behaviour is a common occurance from Ajoshis where they work Laughing

Like the Macarena, The Time Warp, and Jump Around, the success of Gangnam Style is largely down to the silly dance moves that accompany the songs. Psy can at least be proud knowing that middle-aged men will be doing the horsey dance in wedding receptions around the world for the next few years.

Right, so he thought of a way to say it without technically saying it. It's like the song 'If You Seek Amy' by Britney Spears.

If You Seek Amy...Play that funky music white boy...Excuse me, while I kiss the sky...are word play genius...for their time.
Mother, Father, Gentleman...is not.
It is about as creative as the video.

The video itself is disturbing...going with Ed on the classy finger wiping technique.
With the amount of help this guy is getting, it is sad to see that was the best he could rain down on his fans.
