The phenomenon of PSY
Even though I promised myself I won’t write negative things on my blog, I just can’t pass the new video from PSY, for his new song “Gentleman”.
I’m really sorry, but I find the video rather stupid, flashy and not even a little bit funny. And I’m otherwise a pretty crazy person and I like “stupid” things… but for me, he crossed some limits of a good taste in this video. I don’t know what’s funny in being disrespectful towards women, for example.
Now I don’t know whether it’s just me and I don’t understand the joke or people really like this video… or they watch it because of curiosity and the fact that it is so stupid… Whatever the real reason, we can’t ignore the fact that it has nearly 145 million views, in just 5 days.
The song itself is a “good” clone of the previous hit – “Gangnam Style”, which still holds the YouTube record for most views ever, with more than 1.5 billion views.
I wonder if he’ll beat his own record. It took over a month, for “Gangnam Style”, to reach 100 million views. So if things continue this way, it just might happen!
Please, tell me what you think about it. Do you like it? Do you maybe prefer “Gangnam Style” over “Gentlemen”?
