    I was wondering when this video would hit COTH. It's so catchy and it went viral so fast.

    That is... hilarious

    I swear whenever I need lol's I just look up Asian commercials. My bf constantly sends me links to them, especially if he gets a heads up from his cousins in Japan

    Thanks for sharing that!

    Now all they need is to find a way to get a bunch of actual horse riders to do this and they'll be set!

    Now, that's a blast, too !

    I think that song needs to be done in a breeches & boots version, agreed ! Maybe a flash mob at one of the big shows coming up !?!

    LMAO....SkyKing...I like your lyrics better!

    I looked up the lyrics not too long ago.

    Apparently it's "Op, op, Oppan Gangnam Style"

    Oppan is the korean word for either big brother or boyfriend (kinda creepy the two mean the same) and "Gangnam Style" means the boyfriend is wealthy and a party-guy because the Gangnam area of Korea is like party central for wealthy young people.

    There's another version with the red haired girl from the main video doing the singing in a really high pitched squeaky voice. The voice is a parody of how the Gangnam girls speak...kinda like "Valley speak" here back in the 80s.

    Both videos are making fun of the wealthy, spoiled folks in Gangnam. The guy, Psy, had no idea it would go viral. He made the videos for fun. The dancing makes me laugh...absolutely hilarious! He said it's "like riding a horse, but without the horse" and also making fun of the Gangnam crowd, only the very wealthy there have horses.

    It's "Oppa" there's no N.

    I'm learning Korean right now, so yea.

    Psy is awesome. Check out his video "Right Now"

    Nothing horse related, but he just makes you feel a bit better about your daily commute. lol.

    I'll be going to South Korea NEXT WEEK! (sorry i'm excited) and will be hopefully getting in some trail riding in Jeju-do. (Island off the south of SK). Can't wait to get my city slicker friend on a horse. lol. And the island is gorgeous... http://aphs.worldnomads.com/amy_palf...0853/jeju2.jpg

    And they have some type of horse park. lol. Yup i will be visiting.

    That one was funny. Boy do they have some serious costumes in there!

    And the one dressed as The Dread Pirate Roberts/Wesley looks amazingly like Carey Elwes!

    Hubby did a fabulous impression of that dance yesterday. It looks much better when done by an actual horse person.

    They go left-righ-left-left, right-left-right-right, etc.
    What will he do for a follow-up. Too funny.

    Oh, too funny!!

    I got to be the cool old person the other day when I showed the original to a teen who had not yet seen it. Now I get to pass this one on! Thanks for the link.
