Follow Friday: Gangnam Style

Two Words.  Gangnam Style.  Korean rapper-singer Psy has become a huge star in the U.S. already, making an appearance at the MTV Video Music Awards on Thursday.  He can owe this global domination to his viral music video “Gangnam Style“, which has more than 115 million views, and a ton of response clips on YouTube.  Psy, whose real name is Park Jae-Sang, is now signed to Scooter Braun’s School Boy Records, a label under the umbrella of  Universal Music Group that also represents the big, J.Biebz (Justin Bieber) as well as viral YouTube superstar, Carly Rae Jepsen of “Call Me Maybe fame.

As a result, he’s now on his way to achieving what an abundance of K-Pop singers have dreamt of doing, but so far failed miserably, and that is…erupt in America.  Unlike Honey Boo Boo Child and Kim Kardashian, Psy actually has some show worthy talent that America has been sucked into.  The culmination of pelvic thrusts, and ridiculous choreography are not just for your entertainment, but can also be used as a workout.  The second video posted below is done by POP Pilates instructor, Cassey Ho (who was featured in a previous post-> Check It Here) who took the ‘Gangnam Style’ dance, and made it into a cardio dance workout.  It is fun, entertaining, and most definitely keeps your heart pumping! Che-Che-Check it out!  P.S. if you are brave enough, create your own response video to Gangnam Style video.
