• ‘Gangnam Style’ Gallops To No. 2 on Hot 100
• VIDEO: Psy Talks ‘Style,’ Bieber
• Britney Spears & Psy Do ‘Gangnam Style’
Since going viral last month, K-pop sensation
A few thousand miles (and worlds) away from Mordor, Gandalf wanders around Bakersfield, Calif. in this “Gangnam Style” parody. Between his long gray beard and his buxom blonde companion, there’s no shortage of laughs in this “Lord of the Rings” take on the K-pop hit. One thing’s for sure: we’re jealous of all the random passersby featured high-fiving Gangnam Gandalf. But there’s always next time.
Marvel Comics’ Deadpool
Marvel anti-hero Deadpool gets the Gangnam treatment in this homemade video that has already snagged more than 1.5 million views. Watch as Deadpool tries to get intimate with several mall shoppers, and even lets a toddler attack him with a sword. It’s a bit creepy that you can’t see his face, but he manages to make a lot of friends either way. He must be doing something right!
Hot Moms and Cute Babies
For this baby-themed video, a group of self-proclaimed hot moms start discussing the Korean viral video in a class with their babies. Cut to the next scene, and the moms are going full “Gangnam Style” — pushing their strollers with attitude and cleaning the floor like they mean business. The kids are, for the most part, unaware of what’s going on, but the boy in the blue blazer and shades takes the cake for best sport of the bunch, playing Psy’s role in the reinvented clip. Future pop star right there.
Cornell University Flash Mob
Even the Ivy Leagues have gone Gangnam! For a studious bunch, these kids sure know how to get a crowd going. The flashmob turnout was impressive, and the group’s choreographed dance moves weren’t bad either.
New York City Style
This NYC boy-girl duo brings their “Gangnam Style” to the 212, reinventing the K-pop hit for the city that never sleeps. Starting in Times Square (obviously), the pair makes their way around the city, from the tops of skyscrapers to Central Park, and all the way to the Brooklyn Promenade. The subway car they filmed in was empty, which was probably for the best. Although seeing New York commuters’ reactions could have been good for a few extra laughs.
And Psy’s Original ‘Gangnam Style’
Nothing beats the original, which is why we’re closing out this list with Psy’s own “Gangnam Style,” a hilarious viral video in it’s own right. There’s elevator dancing, stables and horses, explosions, “sexy ladies,” and choreographed cheesy dancing. It’s really all you ever need for a few good laughs.
