Gangnam-gagement Style – My experience with the Gangnam

You have to be living under a rock to have not heard “Gangnam Style”.

This video has swept the internet by storm. The brainchild of K-Pop’s greatest sensation, Psy (link) which, according to him is summed up in the following sentence, “Dress Classy, Dance Cheesy”.

To those that do not know, October 4th was my young brothers engagement. A week prior to that, I was flipping through the channels on TV when I came across the music video for Gangnam Style. I was immediately hooked and all of the sudden, I was struck with an idea: Wouldn’t it be great to synchronize this dance, along with my friends and family, at my brothers engagement? No sooner did the thought occur to me did I share it with my brother, with whom I have a psychic connection owing to the fact that we were born on the same day, 5 years apart. He had also viewed the video and was psyched to try it out.

On the evening of Thursday, October 4th 2012, I boarded a plane destined for my brothers engagement. Imagine if you will 3 hours of tapping my feet to the beats of Psy, so much so in fact that I was told off by the elderly gentlemen sitting in the row ahead of me.

After a few hours of practice, behold what we came up wth:

This dance was so popular it was requested as an Encore near the end! Don’t believe me? Watch:

PS I’m the one in red.
