Since calling "gangnam style" her "Weird Phrase of the Week" last week, Madame L has heard from some of her Dear Readers more details about this phrase and has realized that the hilarious SNL skit of the dance is available on YouTube:
Of course everyone and his dog is now posting their own interpretations on YouTube; but watch out, because some people have been fired for doing it.
Meanwhile, it turns out that the artist PSY graduated from the Berklee School of Music in the U.S. And, he says, "My goal in this music video was to look uncool until the end. I achieved it."
But it wasn't just funny for him. He also says the song "was meant as a commentary on the rampant materialism and emphasis on appearance of today's South Korea - particularly in relation to Gangnam, which Psy terms Seoul's Beverly Hills," according to the Sydney Morning Herald. "It is too hot, and the economy is so bad...So I just wanted the song - lyrics, dances and everything - to be full of gusto.'"
