Gangnam style

I saw a twitter hash tag today, and was wondering what it meant. It was posted right after a cricket match got over, and I was wondering whether it is even remotely related to cricket. This is that tweet: 
The tweet that I saw
startthegangnam it read. Start The What? Gangnam? The only thing our generation has done after failing to figure out something is to Google it. So I did, and the results revealed a Korean song sung by a guy named   Psy. You will not believe what I found after that. It was funny enough to blog about! Read on...

This music video was uploaded on Youtube on July 15, and has since been viewed a whopping 370 Million times. You cannot generate such a huge number from one country. It is not just the Koreans but possibly, this video trended worldwide. Gangnam is actually on the list of 10 most searched words on Google last month (Sep 2012). Surprising that I never really knew such a video became so popular. Believe it or not, as per Guinness World Records, this video holds the record for the most liked video in the history of Youtube. The song is composed solely by PSY himself from lyrics to choreography!

There was something in common between me and Psy. We both knew only one dance move, and it is very very terrible. People foound Psy's dance move "funny enough" to "like" it. I did not find it very amusing. It acutually seemed to me like a copy of LMFAO's Party rockin anthem. The beats were quite similar. Nevertheless, a hit is a hit. Here is that song!
