Everyone’s favourite South Korean pop music madman PSY is back again with not one, but two brand new videos. Following the unprecedented viral success of his most famous hit ‘Gangnam Style’, PSY’s music video releases have become something of an event on YouTube, with everyone gathering around to witness the lunacy – and watch the inevitable billion plus views roll in.
PSY’s two new videos feature all the hallmarks that have made PSY so beloved worldwide – catchy pop beats, insane choreography, crazy elaborate sets, budgets that must have stretched into the hundreds of thousands of dollars – and, of course, cameos from prominent Asian pop culture figures. This time around, PSY has snagged an appearance by non other than the Pen Pineapple Apple Pen Guy – because of course he has.
One is called ‘I LUV IT’
This feels like the main one. It is the most similar in musical style to his previous hits and the lyrics are surprisingly meaningful – discussing PSY’s attitude to people hating on him (he luvs it). It also features a cameo appearance from a certain Japanese pen-inserting fruit enthusiast, who made waves last year with a viral song of his own.
And the other is called ‘New Face’
Gonna be honest, the chorus of this doesn’t make much sense – but then again, who really goes to PSY for sense? You get a chance to see PSY in a variety of get-ups, including a chef and a casino croupier. Why? Who knows, but there doesn’t seem to be any outfit he can’t rock.
It has to be said that there really aren’t many artists out there who put as much effort into their videos as Monsieur Gangnam Style. What do you make of his new pop hits? Let us know in the comments below, or on our Facebook page.
