Bill O'Reilly attempts to "analyze" Gangnam Style

What’s the deal with that video with the South Korean guy dancing on an invisible horse like he’s in Monty Python or something? Well, not to worry, Bill O’Reilly is on the case! This ‘Gangnam Style’ video has been the latest, greatest craze to hit the internet, and not only is it the most-watched YouTube video of all time, but it is on its way to getting a billion views. So it’s about time O’Reilly and Fox News resident psychiatrist Keith Ablow analyzed what the hell all of this is about.

Their first conclusion? The whole thing is madness! O’Reilly can’t figure out why a guy “doing the pony” is so popular with people. Ablow said Psy may be tapping into something. That something? Nothing. Yes, in Ablow’s opinion, people enjoy listening to something that doesn’t try to say anything or make a point about anything appeals to people. Plus, it is “without intelligible words, to some extent.”

Well, first of all, it’s in another language, so I think that might explain it. But second of all, even the most basic of research on the video reveals that it actually DOES have a message. The whole point of the video was for Psy to satirize the lifestyles of Gangnam residents, because Gangnam is quite a ritzy neighborhood in South Korea.

But yet, O’Reilly and Ablow continued along the “it means nothing” line. O’Reilly quipped that he knows at least sixteen people in Long Island named Sy, while Ablow compared Psy piggybacking on internet trends to how Elvis Presley capitalized on the sexual culture during his era.

O’Reilly declared Psy to be a “fat little guy… jumping up and down,” and admitted there’s not really anything wrong with the video since, “you might lose a few pounds jumping up and down like a pony.” But Ablow warned that a video like this might be a problem if people continue watching it in order to distance themselves from reality.

source: mediaite

just so we're clear: apparently Korean is unintelligible (to everyone! because who cares about any languages other than English when you live in America!)
and a choice quote from the video: “Elvis has a good voice. His songs had words. He put on a show. This is a little fat guy from Yang Ying or some place and he’s jumping up and down.” (in case you didn't catch the racism! from this tumblr since I couldn't stand to watch the full clip)

You can watch the original video at the source.

can we just send a letterbomb to fox news already, jesus christ. it's not just this (after all the shit they pulled during the election, i'm done), but i like that the network thinks it's totally okay for them to say racist shit on air and not do a damn thing about it. :||||||
obviousgirl 28th-Nov-2012 07:15 am (UTC)
You would be better off letter bombing Murchdoc and the guy that has controling shares in Fox and is supposed to be a terrorist or head of a terrorist organization.
ullielvidina 28th-Nov-2012 05:46 am (UTC)

I don't even bother with this dumb fuck anymore. He's too exhausting.
k0dama 28th-Nov-2012 05:47 am (UTC)

as if all the microaggressions I have to deal with everyday aren't painful enough.
If one more person asks me what country I'm from... :/

I went to that tumblr and the link for the video doesn't work anymore. I wonder if Fox took it down caz when I searched Psy at foxnews.com the only Psy video that comes up now is "Hollywood Nation 'Gangnam Style' makes YouTube history"

ETA
Found a youtube link

Bill O'Reilly is a waste of human breath. Why anyone would listen to that racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic jerk off is beyond me. He's basically the representation of the worst part of American society, ignorant buffoons who have no idea of reality, just their own arrogant existence.

luvey 28th-Nov-2012 10:38 pm (UTC)
everything you said!
earthequality 28th-Nov-2012 05:54 am (UTC)
O'Reilly has straight up told a prominent black professor that "you kind of look like one actually" in reference to gangsters and when Obama was reelected "this is the end of White America". He is SOOOO bigoted, yet people remain apathetic so they don't really have an outcry as much when he opens his mouth anymore. It's sickening.
asnindie 28th-Nov-2012 06:00 am (UTC)
Just goes to show how inherently bigoted Middle America is. The only reason they've gone on this tirade is probably because his xenophobic ass can't deal with someone Asian breaking in to the US. All this is fear, mixed with ignorance and racial supremacy. Asshole.
yingmoon26 28th-Nov-2012 05:59 am (UTC)
lol Fox "news".
i'll just stick to watching the sitcoms that run on Fox. everything else is crap.

the video has been removed from fox now
dapo322 28th-Nov-2012 06:07 am (UTC)
I found the video on youtube
sergel02 28th-Nov-2012 05:59 am (UTC)
Well it is Fox, and O'Reilly at that. Can we expect anything better from him? Which is why i avoid him typically.

I'd be less horrified by this if I hadn't seen facebook statuses saying similar things, smdh. What is people's malfunction!!!!!!!!!

i've learned to not take anything he says to heart tbh. he's just a stupid, annoying asshole.
obviousgirl 28th-Nov-2012 06:44 am (UTC)
Who says annoying, ignorant, racist, xenophobic crap to keep himself in the spotlight and fuel his inner attention whore.

rinn1e 28th-Nov-2012 06:18 am (UTC)
He and Fox are still pissed that Obama won? Actually, it's Fox and Bill, they'll always be pissed if things don't go there way.

Damn, such racism. I can't understand how this is just acceptable? I'm not from the US, so I don't know if FOX is always like this, but seriously ...
It seems like a lot of people in the US seriously think that America/English is the only country/language that actually matters and where the world revolves around, so irritating.

My parents watch Fox so I do as well whenever I go home. He's not usually this bad, I agree with him on a lot of stuff actually, because he's pretty in the middle for a Fox anchor, but sometimes he says douchey stuff. This is one of them. But it's not just Fox, this happens on all the stations with opinion segments on them. People just put their foot in their mouth or are just plain racist.

The part that was the worst was when he said it doesn't have words. lol Like other languages don't exist.
muzegrey 28th-Nov-2012 06:39 am (UTC)
A) Korean has words like any language.
B) I agree that beat is more important these days over lyrics, but that doesn't mean there is no point the the lyrics at all.
C) Please don't be rude about someone's weight or size. Its not like you are even in shape, Bill.
D) What really bothered me was just the overall lack of consideration for the fact that Americans are not the only ones viewing this
E) I think he Ying Yang was his awful attempt to say Pyongyang, but if not just gross.


Anyway, Asians always get trashed in the media and there is no backlash.

"Fox News" and "douche" are pretty much synonymous.

Go deep-throat a nail bat, O'Reilly.

I can ALMOST see where they go with this "unintelligible language" bullshit in that it would obviously be 'unintelligible' to most Americans since we think America invented English, sliced bread, the wheel, etc., but jfc do they honestly think Americans are the only ones watching this video? and wtf do they think subtitles are for. Do they not know that Psy's gallop dance is a ~*universal language*~?

Where's Jon Stewart when you need him?
