It’s been a HUGE year for ‘Gangnam Style’ star PSY ending with a nomination for TIME Person Of The Year 2012. In honour of the Korean superstar we’ve put together a list of the best remixes and parodies for the most watched video on YouTube EVER. Brace yourselves – some of these mutations are designed to burn into your retinas FOREVER!
The Cotton Eye Joe versions might lie bleeding in the ditch but this one’s a killer – Jervy Hou‘s version is ticking somewhere at 25 million views. Asian hotties with neon plastic gunslingerism on a beach? Hit us with that any time.
PSY VS. GHOSTBUSTERS
South Korea meets Slimer! This is one cross-cultural mashup that brings us Bill “Already Got Killed in Zombieland” Murray, a cheesy wink at the supernatural and a stompy-steady bassline – surprisingly only at 1.2 million!
8-BIT GANGNAM STYLE
daneboe‘s 8-bit version is a short, condensed and cheeky take on the party hit – dancers usually don’t react to it well, but the chiptune crowd definitely goes crowdsurfing over this. 3.6 million views so far!
GANGNAM STYLE MEETS METAL
331Erock is clearly a MACHINE OF ROCK – you feed him any piece of music, he turns it into massive shredding. We got to like him a lot around his insane rehash of the Skyrim theme song – his version of Gangnam style is still around the 4 mil mark on YouTube.
LADY GAGA FEAT. PSY
GANGNAM STYLE IS HARDSTYLE
Everything is better with a couple ten thousand bouncy ladies – hardstyle is the key ingredient! Bass Blaster‘s 150BPMish version of the cult classic is, in itself, another cult classic!
