There are nearly 900,000 views on YouTube for Psy’s “Gangnam Style,” so Bill O’Reilly thought he would see what all the fuss was about surrounding the hit song and its video.
Despite the craze surrounding the hit song, O’Reilly can’t seem to figure out what all the fuss is about, MTV reports. O’Reilly discusses the video in depth with psychiatrist, Dr. Keith Ablow. The first thing O’Reilly brings up, “So, that pony …he’s doing the pony…” O’Reilly questions, to which Ablow giggles.
O’Reilly also referred to Psy as "a little fat guy from Pyongyang or some place"
"Remember 'The Pony'? He's just doing the Pony! He's jumping up and down ... 800 million views of this? What's going on?" O'Reilly questioned in annoyance. "It means nothing, but it's got a nice up beat to it, and you can do 'The Pony' and ride around. Elvis Presley could sing, he had a good voice, his songs had words. ... You could understand Presley, the Beatles, the Rolling Stones, even Justin Bieber, I got all that, but this is something more."
Ablow explained that the song that has rose to fame in the USA is great because it has “no meaning” and that fans simply like the sound of the song and the music video.
Just last week it was reported that “Gangnam Style” trumped Justin Bieber’s “Baby,” taking the spot for most views on YouTube.
