Over the weekend, PSY’s ubiquitous invisible horse riding dance video galloped into the record books when it beat out Justin Beiber for the top spot as the most-watched YouTube video ever, with more than 800 million views.
Since there has been no shortage of posts about Gangnam Style here on 8Asians since it hit our radars back in the summer, it makes me wonder when people are going to stop watching that video over and over again. By my estimation, I personally have contributed to several hundred views of that video when I play it whenever my (non-Asian) friends look at me with a blank stare when I mention it. (Yes, I know it’s hard to believe that there is anyone left who hasn’t seen it.)
Have you watched the video incessantly? What’s your excuse?
