Two days after we reacted to the music for Psy’s “Gangnam Style” follow-up “Gentleman,” the official music video has hit YouTube. Given that the utter ridiculousness of “Gangnam Style” is exactly what propelled the K-Popper to global fame, it’s natural to wonder whether the clip for “Gentleman” could possibly measure up. Judge for yourself below.
In what’s pretty much a rehash of “Gangnam,” Psy reprises his goofy dancing style and zany antics. Playing for laughs, his “Gentleman” makes like an elementary schooler on a playground and expresses his feelings for an incoming stream of sexy ladies by abusing them in various uncreative ways. Psy’s star-making hit had him saying “Heeeeey” to those sexy ladies; after this outing, they might be saying “buh-bye” to him.
What did you think, viral video fans? “Gentle,” man! Or “Gentle” meh?
