5 Reasons why Gangnam Style is YouTube’s Favourite Video

We’re big fans of the bus scenes in the Gangnam Style music video purely because a cramped, moving vehicle seems like the worst possible place to organise a dance-off. Psy’s bus trip looks really odd, and that’s great.

‘Sit down, for f*ck’s sake.’

As viewers, we’re left wondering what the bus driver is thinking at this point. Imagine looking in your mirror and seeing Psy stood on the seats thrusting in your direction. Seems off-putting.

4) Sexy yoga

Gangnam’s naughty yoga scene has clearly played a part in getting viewers to watch the YouTube video.

We look on in horror as a sneaky Psy dances his way into the centre of a Yoga class and stares at some arses to make the trip worthwhile.

YouTube likes cheeky and Gangnam Style delivers. Sexy yoga makes it into our list of reasons why the music video has proved so popular online.

5) The Gangnam

How can a list of reasons why Gangnam is so popular not include the dance itself?

Psy’s sideways jigging and invisible horse riding has cemented Gangnam Style‘s place in YouTube’s hall of fame.

Stables are ideal for dancing in, we hear.

We’d be lying if we said we haven’t tried to replicate Psy’s moves on several occasions.
