Annoying, infectious, yet somehow impossible to dislike, there's something about PSY's now-viral Gangnam Style that gets under the skin. It's like that energetic, hard-partying friend we all have, the one we're embarassed about but can't do without.
In celebration of how absolutely contagious the song is, we've prepared for you this roundup of some of the silliest Gangnam Style parodies we could find. Naturally, given that this is GeekTech, they're all going to be thematically accurate. After all, do we really want to see another assortment of backup dancers prancing about when we could watch Minecraft zombies getting their groove on?
Don't answer that.
How could you possibly dislike this? Really. Not only did they manage to weave in usage of yet another global phenomenon (let's not start on the number of awards that Mojang has taken home since its conception), the people responsible for Minecraft Style also came up with both decent animation and rather pun-tastic lyrics.
Though some may argue that J.R.R Tolkien's bibliography of work may not be geeky in the way Minecraft is, I'd like to differ. For those born in a certain era, profilic reading habits were instrumental in defining one's nerdiness. And, really, can you say no to a white-bearded wizard who prances about on a make-believe Shadowfax?
Team Fortress 2: Gangnam Style
The Source Filmaker is an absolutely beautiful thing. A lot of people have created some excellent things with it. Needless to say, however, it also gets ruthlessly abused a lot. I have no words for this. Enjoy this vision of the Team Fortress 2 characters re-enacting PSY's now legendary moves.
