Addendum on Gangnam Style

The Atlantic had a nice article on the video a couple years ago, which is here

In my opinion, it is highly improbable that a crossdressing pot-smoking draft dodger would become South Korea's King of All Media, but imagine how the rest of the South Korean entertainment industry feels.  That guy?  That's the one the crosses over?

Yup.  A fine endorsement for the Berklee School of Music as well, even if he did drop out.

I met a talented young cellist at a guitar weekend a few months ago who told me he hoped to get into Berklee School of Music. I told him that "that Gangnam Style guy" went to Berklee.

He said, "That kind of ruins it for me."

I replied, "Which? Berklee or Gangnam Style?"
