For those of you who’ve lived under a rock for the past month, I introduce to you Gangnam Style, further reaffirming for me that South Korea is the coolest of cool. (Why haven’t Americans figured this one out?)

South Korean K-pop singer Psy released this bad boy back home recently. He said he invented the Gangnam Style dance to “dress classy and dance cheesy.” The video best speaks for itself.

Well, do you love it? Here’s a bit of the closest translation to English I could find. It’s most likely off a bit.

A girl who is warm and humane during the day

A classy girl who know how to enjoy the freedom of a cup of coffee

A girl whose heart gets hotter when night comes

A girl with that kind of twist

I’m a guy

A guy who is as warm as you during the day

A guy who one-shots his coffee before it even cools down

A guy whose heart bursts when night comes

That kind of guy

And why does any of this matter? Well, Psy went to Boston University and even had a stint at Berklee College of Music! I figured BU students would have been a little more on top of this than they have been. Psy hilariously admits to Ryan Seacrest that he snuck in loads of alcohol to American students. This resulted in a swarm of ambulances outside BU. Well, Psy, not much has changed, except maybe that the current foreign students aren’t as cool as you were. U da man.
