If you haven’t been introduced to the unstoppable earworm that is PSY’s “Gangnam Style”, welcome back from the coma. Good to have you back.
This K-pop phenomenon — currently #2 on the Billboard Hot 100 — has inspired numerous parodies and mashups and led to massive crowds of fans. PSY even recently performed the “Gangnam Style” dance with Hugh Jackman while they both wore Wolverine claws. (That was a perfectly normal sentence.)
PSY has responded to this sudden stateside popularity by stopping by Reddit to answer some questions. Our 20 favorite threads from PSY’s Reddit AMA are collected below, including .gif reactions and relevant media. Thanks to The Daily What for the banner picture.
