Lately I've decided that "Gangnam Style" is a North Korean plot to push negative stories about Pyongyang out of the news, by getting everybody to pay attention to this absolutely ridiculous, silly, mindless, and addictive – highly addictive – video from South Korea.
Essentially, my theory goes, people have a limit on how much news they can get from Korea – a quota, if you will – and Psy fills that. With daily news reports on the latest Gangnam Style happening, Psy easily fills it.
So the latest is that he will perform this song and dance topless if it becomes the number one song on Apple's iTunes. And apparently I guess people want that.

Pearls of witticism from 'Bo the Blogger: Kushibo's Korea blog... Kushibo-e Kibun... Now with Less kimchi, more nunchi. Random thoughts and commentary (and indiscernibly opaque humor) about selected social, political, economic, and health-related issues of the day affecting "foreans," Koreans, Korea and East Asia, along with the US, especially Hawaii, Orange County and the rest of California, plus anything else that is deemed worthy of discussion. Forza Corea!
