One of the latest music videos to go viral comes from South Korea. Korean megastar PSY is back from a two year hiatus with his latest single Gangnam Style and it’s blowing up the internet. Watch this video in high resolution and it will simultaneously blow your mind while you pee your pants from laughter.

Lunchtime Distraction: <i>Gangnam Style</i> by PSY

Prepare yourself for the most entertaining part of your day. Behold, the music video for Korean pop sensation PSY’s Gangnam Style. The singer’s outlandish dance moves and antics will have you smiling throughout the catchy four-minute long techno song. The style the song is referring to is in Seoul’s Gangnam district where there are apparently a lot of “doughy, bisexual hype cats” and is also seen as the “Beverley Hills” of Seoul.

The tongue-in-cheek artist reflects on the silly song’s meaning, “the guy doesn’t look like Beverly Hills. Dance doesn’t look like Beverly Hills. … And the situation in music video doesn’t look like Beverly Hills. But he keeps saying I’m Beverly Hills style. So that’s the point. It’s sort of a twist.”

Apparently the viral video has caught the attention of some American celebrities as well. Justin Bieber is showing interest in collaborating with the artist and the video has also sparked a dance craze called the “invisible horse”. Reminiscent of the the gay French Sean Paul viral video, Gangnam Style is the Korean techno version. If we haven’t sold you already, Korean pop songstress Hyuna also makes an appearance with dozens of backup dancers.

And just so you know, this song will get stuck in your head. So don’t say we didn’t warn you.
