Gangnam Style parodies and copycats

Updated on October 3, 2013

The impossible is possible

How many Youtube videos does it take for people to try anything, people worldwide are always craving for attention, for stardom, for a given moment a Youtube video pops up with Viral numbers, and stats.

This time however its been done in such a way that the original owner had meant to allow his videos to be made fun of, to be emulated, and to go mega viral.

A Korean rapper named PSY is this mega star, and his song titled Gangnam Style, has blown Youtuber's apart. His silly dancing style of horsy motions has shook the Youtube online power house, and the entire network seems to be dancing to his tunes now. Heck the entire planet is also rocking to this new musical hot shot!

The Gangnam videos have arrived!

There's loads of copycat's online who are so anxious to catch the next viral trend, and here it is, this one came in only 3 months. The Gangnam Style Youtube video is so popular its raked in a towering 500 million + views in only 3 months, shattering all known records there, and making folks in the music industry beg for this guys magical dance techniques to somehow bless their lions dens.

At high gauntlet even Hollywood was swept in to this massive monsoon of online waves of global views, just think how many views the super viral rash of this video will have a year from now. Clearly it will be surpassing Lady Gaga's 1 Billion views Youtube channel status entirely in maybe a week from now. Amazingly this video by entertainer extraordinaire PSY has put a hurting on all American run music industry stars, making them look silly pretty much, when the numbers all play out, and the profits roll in for this cool dude who can dance his ass off.


Many parodies will be made, many will succeed and most of them will fail, and the video up above is an obvious numerical sucker, because its only earned the lucky contestant 31 views on Youtube thus far, but we will see if this very article can help assist the poor lad there.

The funniest things are the one's that will definitely tend to rake in the Billions of viewers there on Youtube, and mainly because of all the social sharing of it all there with networks like Facebook, Google Plus, and especially after it receives national attention by all the ants, rodents, and cob web dealers all across the internet, and maybe it even gets sold in the underground black market where all the bootleggers dwell, and where they evade the Panda bear robot police that Google placed into authority, now how Gangnam! is that.

Just another fail, but atleast they raked in about 1650+ views

Getting tired yet?

After hearing the same song and watching the same videos day in and day out, after a while your eyes might wanna pop out, and your ears may fall off, but this song here seems to never get dry, the dance never fades for some odd reason, and the best thing is it all just got started. I think even the Pope himself, and the Dali Lama danced to this awesome song that PSY created.

Man oh man I need to make a parody myself so I can join in on the potential viral action, but I think it shall be a fail for sure, because I don't have a lick of comedic expression in me to save my life. If I did, well I would be doing what our cool new friend PSY has done creating the most insane worldwide musical phenomenon ever known to man.

Its safe to say that he's a genius, and I'm just a little ole rocket scientist type trying to earn a slow buck typing up a storm all day and night, because all other systems have failed me LMFAO. Go Figure!

Next up Flash Mob Heaven!

Love is in the air

As the love continues to pore in worldwide due to the dynamic factors of the online success for this Gangnam Style videos butterfly effect, it has brought tons of supporters in worldwide, and even in the down under country of the Kangaroo's Australia, where PSY reins victory over the crowds of millions of viewers there too. (He's a true master of the universe now)

This parody video below is yet another example of how the love is getting spread so rapidly for this new superstar, and who knows what will happen by this time next year for him, if the world doesn't end by that time before hand. (The Darn Mayans with their calender making, Yikes!)

      Sorry, don't mean to copy Sunnie Day but it is amazing what can go viral. The problem for him is that the song! He need to make a new one. I thought it was kind of neat the first time, so was the costume. But after that, it kind of got old pretty fast.

      Thanks for the hub!
