How many of you older folks have heard of the gangnam style dance? Don’t feel bad. I didn’t till a few months ago. My 14 year old granddaughter was over at my house one evening and she was talking about this new dance. She actually tried to teach me the dance but that’s like teaching a blind person to read. I cannot dance. All we did was end up laughing that was my intro to gangnam style, until…a few days ago. I went to YouTube to find out about this craze and actually it’s pretty interesting.
Gangnam style was invented by a man from Korea named, Psy, (pronounced Sigh.) He is very entertaining. Psy made his debut in 2001 with a song, “Bird”. He has 5 other hits under his belt. July 18,2012, Psy came out with “Gangnam Style”.. His video has over 100 million hits on the popular YouTube. His song is ranked in the top 10 on the iTunes. Psy loves to communicate and interact with his fans during his concerts.
Everyone has done the Gangnam Style dance. There is a video of actors portraying Obama and Michele doing the dance. There is one of Obama and Romney doing the dance for votes. They looked like puppets and it was pretty funny. Hitler has a gangnam style as does a vegan style which I found was pretty dumb. But then, I love meat. There are a lot of flash mobs doing the gangnam style dance in malls. MC Hammer, (remember him?) did the dance with Psy himself at the MTV Video Music awards this year. MC still has it. That was an awesome show. Psy was on the “Ellen” show and was teaching Ellen and Britney Spears how to do the dance. And Psy even had a spot on the super bowl commercials dancing with pistachios…….Love it…….
