Must watch - Mongolian Gangnam Style

After months of galloping to the beat of Psy's Gangnam Style, we thought we would be through with it by now, but no, every once in a while a new parody comes on and we get sucked into that galloping rhythm again.

Came across one done in Mongolia and uploaded by "Cari Bou". So it's Oppa Mongolian Gangnam Style! This one is really well done, one of the better videos of Psy's viral hit.

What's nice about this video is that it incorporates local Mongolian traditions and cultures. Fun to watch.


In just five months since it appeared, Psy's video has already become the first ever on YouTube to register more than a billion hits - overtaking Justin Bieber's "Baby" video as the most watched on YouTube, breaking the teen heartthrob's former record of 803 million views.

The local government in South Korea plans to open a visitor center in February that could eventually include a life-size hologram of the singer, whose real name is Park Jae-sang, performing his buffoonish dance.

The first public display to honor Psy is a plywood stage decorated with black, cutout silhouettes of a rotund man who appears to be prancing like a horse right across from Samsung’s corporate headquarters in Seoul.

Psy himself is from Gangnam, a district in South Korea that has a reputation of being one of the most affluent, dynamic, and influential areas in both Seoul and South Korea as a whole.
