'Gangnam Style' parody 'Gaijin Style' hits the web
“Gangnam Style,” performed by South Korean singer Psy, is an undisputed worldwide hit. It currently has over 1.25 billion views on YouTube and was able to surpass Justin Bieber’s “Baby” to claim its spot as the world’s most watched YouTube video. Following the song’s success, there have been a number of parodies. Now here’s another one to add to the bunch.
“Gaijin Style” details the lifestyle of foreigners living in Japan and features a gaijin Psy lookalike horse dancing across the screen.
Here’s a sample of the lyrics:
I don’t speak Japanese
And when I’m on the trains, no one sits next to me.
I’m loud and drunk and rude and I don’t even care who sees.
I’m a rock star here but just a loser in my own country
in my own country
The girls all think that I look like Brad Pitt
my big ego (hey), my big ego (hey)
As you might guess, this video is being met with mixed reviews. Here’s what the Internet is saying about “Gaijin Style.”
“I couldn’t laugh. It was all too true.”
“That was hilarious and amazing. I’m so proud.”
“This is unfortunately, true.”
“There aren’t enough words to express how much I love this.”
“I will never tire of this video.”
“Probably, it is joke. But, it so shudders. We are not prostitutes. It is very impolite to us. From a Japanese woman.”
“It is a joke. And the message is: don’t sleep with gaijin just because you think they are cool. Check what kind of person they are.”
