Bill O’Reilly Doesn’t Understand Gangnam Style

Ayyyyyy, Fox News ladies

First off, Let me start by stating that It doesn’t surprise me one bit that Fox News Anchor Bill O’Reilly doesn’t understand what the phenomenon behind Korean Hip-Hop Sensation “Psy” and his hit song Gangnam Style. What did surprise me was that O’Reilly took a break from reporting on the “War on Christmas” while also ignoring the war in Syria to start a war on people feeling joy. If that wasn’t enough Bill invited Psychiatrist Keith Ablow to explain the songs popularity. The same Dr. Keith Ablow Who suggested that “Dancing With Stars” Chose Chaz Bono in order to subconsciously inspire children to reconsider their gender, and that Newt Gingrich’s infidelities would make him a much better president. 

Over the weekend “Gangnam Style” became the most-watched YouTube video in history with over 840 million views and now trumps Justin Beiber. O’Reilly said he just doesn’t understand how it can be so popular “He‘s just doing the Pony” O’Reilly decried and came to the conclusion that it’s appeal is “Internet driven” and that it’s just a place people go to when they want to numb themselves to some degree. O’Reilly went on to say that he could understand the Popularity of Elvis Presley, The Beatles and the Rolling Stones but he just couldn’t understand what drove people to this. What I find Ironic is that When Bill was a young Whipper-Snapper any televised performance by Elvis Presley had to be filmed above the waist because his thrusting and swaying hips would never get by the censors of the day. And as for The Beatles and Rolling Stones does Mr. O’Reilly forget a time when the older generation couldn’t stand the concept of Rock and Roll? They refused to acknowledge it as Music or a form of art. To them it was simply noise, and most likely hand delivered to us by the devil himself. 

In Ablow’s medical opinion he explained that he thought what this “fellow” is tapping into.. Is the fact that people don’t want any meaning right now. That it is just a sort of like a drug and that seems to be what people want right now. Not reality, not feeling, not meaning. Ablow commented “The meaning is that it means nothing.” I’m personally waiting for his riveting explanation to the meaning behind “Inna-Gadda-Da-Vita”  My theory however, is maybe Bill O’Reilly can’t seem to gather the meaning behind “Gangnam Style” because… THE LYRICS ARE SUNG IN KOREAN! 

I can’t believe I’m about to do this. I’m going to help Mr. Factor and T.V. Dr. Ablow whilst defending a pop song. Here it is the English Translation to PSY‘s “Gangham Style” In their entirety

Oppa is Gangnam Style

Gangnam Style

A Girl who is warm and human during the day

A classy girl who knows how to enjoy the freedom of a cup of coffee

A girl whose heart gets hotter when the night comes

A girl with that kind of twist

I’m a guy

A guy who is as warm as you during the day

A guy who one-shots his coffee before it even cools down

A guy whose hear bursts when night comes

That kind of guy

Beautiful, loveable

Yes you, hey you, he

Beautiful, loveable

Yes you, hey, yes you, hey

Now let’s go until the end

Oppa is Gangnam Style, Gangnam Style

Oppa is Gangnam Style, Gangnam Style

Oppa is Gangnam Style

Eh-Sexy lady, Oppa is Gangnam Style

Eh-Sexy lady, oh oh oh oh

A girl who looks quiet but plays when she plays

A girl who puts her hair down when the right time comes

A girls who covers herself but is more sexy than a girls who bares it all

A sensible girl like that

I’m a guy

A guy who seems clam but plays when he plays

A guy who goes completely crazy when the right time comes 

A guy who has bulging ideas rather than muscles that kind of guy

Beautiful, loveable

Yes you, hey you, he

Beautiful, loveable

Yes you, hey, yes you, hey

Now let’s go until the end

Oppa is Gangnam Style, Gangnam Style

Oppa is Gangnam Style, Gangnam Style

Oppa is Gangnam Style

Eh-Sexy lady, Oppa is Gangnam Style

Eh-Sexy lady, oh oh oh oh

On top of the running man is the flying man, baby baby

I’m a man who knows a thing or two

On top of the running man is the flying man, baby baby

I’m a man who knows a thing or two

Eh-Sexy lady, Oppa is Gangnam Style

Eh-Sexy lady, oh oh oh oh

Looks like someone’s been reading Tim Allen’s Website! Also, three seconds of research (which is more than I did) would show that “Gangnam Style” is actually more complex than your average run of the mill pop song, and to say it is “without intelligible words, to some extent” is hilarious at best, ignorant at its worst. What is actually unintelligible is why Keith Ablow’s acumen was needed at all during this six minute segment. The only part of the Psy phenomenon a psychiatrist would have any insight into is his use of the silent “P.” Asking a psychiatrist to explain “Gangnam Style” is like asking Bill O’Reilly to explain Journalism. It’s completely unrelated to their job.
