Psy is back! The ‘Gangnam Style’ superstar has returned to the viral video ranks with his bizarre new ‘Daddy’ music video, which sees him playing both a little boy and an old man. It’s weird, creepy and oh so addicting — watch it here!
South Korean singer Psy broke the Internet in 2012 with his over-the-top “Gangnam Style” video, and now, it appears he’s prepared to reach viral video fame once again, this time with the release of his latest music video, “Daddy.” In it, the K-pop goofball plays both an old man and a creepy looking little boy, and while we’re not 100 percent sure what’s going on in this song, we can tell you that it’s a total must-see. Watch it here!
We’re not even sure where to begin with this one. Like “Gangnam Style,” the bizarre video showcases Psy performing some incredibly odd but energetic dance moves, this time however, dressed not just as himself, but rather as a little boy and an old man. The song, which features fellow K-pop star CL, is sort of a reverse tribute to will.i.am’s “I Got It From My Mama.” But where the video opens with close-up shots of gorgeous models, “Daddy” kicks off with creepy shots of Psy’s face superimposed on a baby’s body. “Where’d you get that body from?” asks CL, with Psy answering in an auto-tuned chorus, “I got it from my daddy.”
The video only continues to grow more ridiculous from there as the viral star transitions from a little boy into an old man. While generations of Psys dance around a living room, the K-pop star can also be seen doing sit-ups, showing off a gold grill and randomly appearing on a toilet.
At a press conference in Seoul on Nov. 30, Psy explained how the monumental success of “Gangnam Style”— which reached over 2 billion YouTube views — affected him while recording the follow-up to PSY 6. “There were many thoughts going around in my head, including thoughts like, ‘If I write like this, it would be not as good as ‘Gangnam Style,’ and ‘If I write like this, the international audience will not understand,’” he said. “So it took me a very long time to organize all those thoughts into one.”
While there’s no telling yet if “Daddy” is set to replace “Gangnam Style” as Psy’s biggest hit, it has already racked up close to 500,00 YouTube views in less than 24-hours, which is pretty impressive in and of itself.
