If you thought the master-mind behind the record making viral sensation, “Gangnam Style” was destined to be a one-hit sensation, you’d better think again. The man who introduced us to the horse dance and that bizarre elevator crotch gyrating routine is back with another smasher.
“Gentleman,” the follow-up to last year’s music phenomenon shows the 35-year-old causing trouble and mayhem, whilst dancing around like no one’s watching.
While “Gangnam Style” currently holds YouTube’s record as the most watched video of all time with 1.53 billion hits, it seems “Gentleman” is setting up to make some waves as well. Within the first 24 hours of its debut, the video garnered 22 million YouTube hits. As of Monday morning, the count was at nearly 63 million views. Not bad, considering the second most watched video on YouTube is Justin Bieber’s “Baby” with 849 million hits. It isn’t a wild thought to imagine “Gentleman” will eclipse the Biebs soon.
What does Psy think of his super stardom? For him, it’s whatevz.
“I’ve been doing this for 12 years” he recently said at a Seoul concert, according to Digital Spy. “I gained international fame almost by accident, but that does not mean that I will make desperate efforts to maintain that global popularity. I will just continue to do what I have been doing for all these years. If it satisfies people’s appetite, it will. If not, it won’t.”
Oh, we think it most definitely will, Psy. Check out “Gentleman” above.
