Slightly away from politics this time, but not far from the media. I couldn’t get away from the fact a non-English YouTube video has just crossed one billion views and became the most watched online video ever. You probably guessed, it’s the Gangnam Style by Psy.
One billion views for a video supposed to be satirising the posh style of some area in South Korea is a massive number, considering the world online population is 2.4 billion. Unbelievable times we live in. A time when you don’t need to be first featured on the mainstream media (MSM) to be famous or talked about. You don’t need to speak English or originate from the west. You even can have some anti-American past like Psy. The video is unbelievably silly but cool. Lots of colours and moves with moving rhythms. I personally liked the kid at its first part.
