Psy "Gentleman" (Psy, dir.)


Anyone who reads Videostatic knows how amped up we were about PSY's uber-viral hit, 'Gangnam Style.' The expectations are high for the follow-up clip 'Gentleman' and now it's finally here. The new clip clearly has an expanded budget and the dance numbers are even more over the top with return visits from well-known Korean comedians and a female K-Pop lead — this time it is Ga from Brown Eyed Girls. 

On first listen, the track doesn't have the same ear-worm hookiness, but the bigger let down is that the jokes are no longer at PSY's own expense, but rather he's pulling cruel-ish pranks on people — mostly pretty girls. A guy with the biggest, baddest viral video of all time probably ought to be past pulling the chair out from under a girl or making her smell his farts.

Oh well, the dance stuff is still ridiculously awesome. I'm gonna go watch it again.
