Going viral can increase your popularity instantly, just ask South Korean sensation PSY who recently posted a music video for his song Gangnam Style. His video hit 200 million views in just two months. PSY is a man with a grand sense of humor and a lack of dance skill to go with it; ask him if he cares. The man takes his lack of dance skill and makes a music video that you can’t help but smile while watching. His supporting cast could possibly be funnier than he is. With remixes and parodies popping up all over the internet, PSY has made his way into becoming one of the most popular persons of 2012.
Youtube is starting to have a huge impact on our society, whether it be good or bad. We have videos of people doing things they most likely shouldn’t be doing, just for a couple of views, and we have people making parodies, good or bad, that are causing a stir all over the world (yes, I am talking about the poorly produced movie that ended in the death of multiple innocent people in Libya). Decide for yourself if the impact that youtube has made in this world is good or bad, but PSY decided to take advantage of it in a harmless, humorous way. So remember, if you are going to try and impress the world with that irrelevant talent you have, make sure you are not going to offend anyone, make sure its safe to perform, and throw in a dance that looks like you are riding a horse and you should do just fine.
