Stellarras top 5: Gungnam style!

Featured image for Gungnam

So I’m not the greatest lover of commercial music, the repetitiveness of a few words over and over irritate me so much that I just cant handle it. For this reason I actually just dont listen to radio, I am constantly listening to podcasts or audio books (audible.com is Awesome!) so I was not familiar with the phenomenon that is knows as gungnam style.

I was busy one day checking statistics of social media and I started doing research in to the most viewed videos on YouTube  I found that 90% of the top 10 videos are music videos, we are talking views in the hundreds of millions, number one was and still is Justin Bieber – baby at around 800000000 views, this video has been on the YouTubes for just over 2 years. under that you were looking at Jennifer lopes and LMFAO and lo and behold there was this video by PSY-Gungnam style that I was told repeatidly by my brothers girlfriend to watch cause it was awesome. So I did watch it, and once I saw the little kid grooving I was hooked. This video that had been on youtube just under 3 months had, had over 400000000 views. Next came a plethora of parodies and spoofs of this song. I ended up spending the rest of the day jumping from video to video, in the end i wanted to share so many of them that I decided to start a “Stellarra’s top 5” category and add gungnam style as the first top 5. So below is the top 5 gungnam parodies I find the funniest. I have added one or two at the bottom because there are a few I enjoyed more than the top 5 but I tried to keep it all English. Im still undecided wether i like the song or not but its hard to ignore something that can generate this much hype in such a small period of time.

Just for information’s sake, currently gungnam style has been on YouTube for about 4 months and is on 785+ million views Justin Bieber is on about 802+ million views.

 

this is the original video if you are unfamiliar with it

5. Hitler Style

I thought this was hitlarious, the combination of the movie clips and song are done extremely well.

3. Oppa Gangnam Style

I couldnt help but put in this version, its a one man accoustic cover and its brilliant!

I found this guys channel because of this video and I think his content is really great, you can see more of his stuff here MysteryGuitarMan , you should have a look at his power tool dubstep and game of tones videos

2. Mortal Kombat Style

Need I say more? This video is awesome in the sense that they litraly took almost the complete character select screen out of Mortal Kombat and flash mobbed the S#1t out of a town. Just plain awesome! They chose awesome ways to show Shao Khan, and Jades just damn hot.

1. CY – Gavlosa

This for me was by far the best, granted the words when said and understood in greek have alot more meaning than the same word explained in english, but it is definitly my favourite.

PS. Am I the only one that thinks PSY ripped of some of Daler Mehndi’s moves? like the double 90 degree fist pump dance of awesomeness? granted Daler’s moves are more bollywood, thats all.
