Hilariously Awesome and Epic “Making of” Video for Psy’s Gangnam Style Music Video

By fotosiamo on September 16th 2012


If you haven’t seen or heard of the hilariously awesome Psy’s “Gangnam Style,” then you are missing out on the immensely successful YouTube video that has taken over pop culture. At over 190 million views and counting, this music video is also the single most liked YouTube video ever. When you watch this music video, you just can’t help to smile and bust out in laughter

There is also an equally epic behind the scenes video that shows how the video was shot using the EPIC RED camera. Not only was the production first-rate, but it looks like a blast to shoot and practically everyone is laughing in every shoot.

Along with that video is an article by Rolling Stones that has Psy’s breakdown and inspiration for each scene. Here is an excerpt of that article:

THE SCENE: Dozing off in the sauna
THE TIME: 0:48
PSY SAYS: “It was a real sauna, so it was hot, and I was so exhausted, and all of a sudden I feel like getting sleepy on his shoulder. That was 100 percent ad-libbed. At this sauna, every staff, even me, was out of their consciousness. We were like, ‘Hey, what are we doing right now? Why are we at the sauna?’ The fat guy? Yeah, he was an actor.”

BONUS: My favorite parody of this video hands down belong to comedian David So: Oppa Byuntae Style. It’s hilarious also!
