PSY's "Gentlemen M/V" #EpicFail
It pains me to say this!
But at this point, my husband was right when he said that PSY was a one-hit wonder. I said "How can you say that? He is totally famous in his country! There is no way! This guy is unbelievably talented! You just watch the next song is going to be even better than "Gangnam Style!"
PSY's latest single/video "M/V Gentlemen" has finally been released.
WHAT A LET DOWN!
Lesson One: Don't try and out do what you did before.
"Gangnam Style" wasn't a great song, but it made history! It was catchy, bouncy and cutting edge as far as it's video work.
I have watched "M/V Gentlemen" several times and cannot believe what I am watching! There is really nothing original about the video. Sure, there isn't a horse or red Mercedes in this one. But he's got the same people that were in his other video, like the yellow suited guy.
I am really disappointed to say the least! I don't know who he is listening to as far as his creative core of people, but I think PSY needs to fire them and start over! I still believe that he is talented, but this video and this song are a total failure. The lyrical content is unimaginative, with it's extreme crude sexual lyrics. (Yes, I looked up the translation).
I cannot even say that the dancing is anything to speak of.
WERE THE DANCERS EVEN DANCING??
Okay, I understand that with his newly coined dance moves; "Abracadabra," he is paying some kind of homage to KPop girl group "Brown Eyed Girls." But it's not like Brown Eyed Girls own those moves! Shoot....I was doing that back & forth swaying long before the BEG's were even born! And so were my L.A. friends! There isn't anything new under the sun here!
The way he treats women in the video is atrocious! Sure I get it! He's kind of making fun of how some men treat women! His character is saying that he is Gods gift to women with his arrogant, annoying self. Even to the point of being crude where he is sticking his finger in his arse, only to run his finger in front of a girl sitting at the table. I felt like I was watching a movie trailer for the old Problem Child movies, only this would be called "Problem Child: All Grown Up!" Its obvious that he meets his match in a woman he meets at the gym. And yeah, it's funny that he gets a dose of his own medicine with her, but are we selling music here or a video? I think if it's music, then what a terrible song! There is nothing original about the song whatsoever! It's repetitious..... it's stupid!
This video is so bad, I won't even grace my blog by adding the link of the video.
Yes PSY, we know who you are. Just hope it won't be. . . "Remember that guy from Korea with the Hammer pants? Whatever happened to him?"
