“Gangnam Style” Now Subject of Parody–By a Guy in a Duck Suit

If you haven’t seen PSY’s crazy “Gangnam Style” K-Pop video (and it’s been viewed moe than 105 million times,) start by giving it a look here.  The guy is the new Gotye and this is the new “Somebody That I Used to Know.”  Then move on to the Oregon Duck.

If you’re still with me, dig into the satire of the original video.  You can also go here.

And now, the live version.

    Questions

    1. Is he wearing MC Hammer pants in the live video?

    and

    2. Why did the duck video makers feel it necessary to censor "Sexy" before "lady" is "Sexy" a bad word in Oregon?

    Thanks for the links to the subtext articles, I am now the most informed person I know in terms of wtf is up with this video. I think it is very cool that it is a subversive peice, lack of substance is my main issue with K-pop and pop in general.
