I probably shouldn’t be writing this post for many reasons. I don’t speak Korean and have zero clue as to what this gentlemen is saying. I am probably a terrible mom for letting my two year old watch this video (repeatedly). The only English phrase is ‘Heeeeeeeeey, sexy lady’ with the camera zooming in on a toned rump. I should probably be offended by that (but I’m not). I should probably be watching documentaries or reading the New York Times instead of hitting replay (over and over).
But I am writing this post, because this video makes me genuinely happy. It’s neon bubblegum color scheme is a ray of light. There are not one but two horsey dances in it. My two year old (see above) squeals ‘horsey horsey’ and does his own happy horsey dance. It makes me wish that I was 22 again when I spent every weekend clubbing and dancing into the wee hours of the night, instead of being 32 when I don’t know the name of a single club in Seattle. This song has got to be hot right now at the clubs. This video has a toilet shot, and well, who does that? I also love that he seems to be taking this video so seriously. And the bottom line is that it makes me want to dance with a big goofy grin on my face.
So there you have it, I ♥ Gangnam Style!
*I’m sure I could find the translation online, but that would take away some of the mystique*
Happy horsey dancing,
