Video After The Jump
Korean rapper Psy has been doing his thing for a decade, but it wasn’t until he came up with the “horse riding dance” did it really take off.
The music video for “Gangnam Style” has gone viral with over 41 million youtube hits since it was uploaded on July 15th.
“I think foreigners think I’m funny,” Psy told CNN. “The way Korean people think Austin Powers and Mr. Bean are funny. There’s no language barrier. I’m crazy about music. Crazy about the stage. Crazy about performing and crazy about my fans.“
His fans seem to love him back as 30,000 of them turned up to see him perform last week. And Korean gyms are using the song in dance classes to burn calories.
Check out the video below and CNN’s report on how popular it’s become.
