Things I Thought I’d Never See: A Dude Rapping In Korean At The American Music Awards

November 19th, 2012 | 3 comments | Posted by Jen

My Facebook feed right now is almost evenly split between links about Gaza and video of the “Gangnam Style” + “2 Legit 2 Quit” mashup that closed out the American Music Awards last night.

I don’t know exactly what that means, though it speaks to our privilege as Americans that we can view war and entertainment simultaneously from the same distance.

I wasn’t going to click the Gangnam Style link because, I mean, ENOUGH ALREADY, and when something meme-ifies so quickly, you feel like you’ve been there, done that without actually having to have been there and done that because everyone else has already really been there and done that so there’s really nothing more to say or feel about what’s happened.

After, like, the 100th post of this video though, I relented. And I’m glad I did. At first, just to see PSY in Hammer Pants (aka Justin Bieber Everyday Pants):

Though the real picness of what I was witnessing hit me about a minute in.

There’s a dude rapping in Korean at the American Music Awards.

And that dude just stole the show.

    Glee actors butchering the Korean language while producers force the token Asian girl to lead the song (regardless of her insistence that she doesn’t know Korean). This almost makes me pine for the early days when they went to “Asian camp” (which I thought was some kind of really fucked up euphemism for internment when I first heard people talking about Glee).

    same sentiments.. played out as it is.. that mashup is pretty rad.. and far better than individually.
