We Found A Gangnam Parody That Isn’t Terrible: Zhangjiajie Style
I know you’re going to hate me for this, but throw back a drink of choice and let yourself enjoy this. It succeeds where other Gangnam parodies fail: by sticking to the basics. It doesn’t rewrite any lyrics. Doesn’t invent dance steps. It just says to PSY by way of tribute: you think you’re zany with your horses and K-pop stars? We’re going to give you cross-dressing chefs, ridiculous costumes, and the Na’vi. Meanwhile, everyone slowly loses their mind. Take it or leave it.
You’ll like this better when you realize it was directed by 58-year-old Zheng Yaping, the deputy director of the Zhangjiajie Tourism Bureau. Why is he only a deputy director? Give that man a promotion!
Oh, and there’s a bull at the end. Youku video for those in China after the jump.
