I voted 'other' although I'm not really sure what exactly my view was. It's been a long time since I voted in the poll.

Sorry, Raquel. Didn't mean to offend you in any way, but you can see I am quite passionate about these things.

I remember I was first introduced to this piece of musical genius during an inebriated night at uni this year... I was in some randoms room and it just appeared on the screen... something like 20 million views in a couple of days it was then. I glimpsed it out the corner of my glassy eye... I didn't have a clue what he was saying but I danced along. I knocked over the randoms clothes rack in my attempt to ride the horse.. I apologised most humbly and Usain Bolted back to my room and locked my door. 72 hours later I emerged a more complete person... Thank you so much PSY..

Has anyone posted here the video of Psy and Madonna singing a mash up? I find it as terrible as glee's version. A true fail.

The funny thing is that I am not even passionate about Glee. And I do understand why you and everyone else does not like it. That is not what I was contesting.

Now that most of the hype has already gone, I've been able to listen this song. Actually it's better than 80% of the shit played on pop radio stations. But I don't completeöy understand the hype about that video. Yeah, it's hilarious but doesn't really make me LOLing. I voted "It's okay, but I don't understand the fuss about it".

I don't think it's so bad... I doubt they had much time to rehearse -- they both have very busy schedules. It's easy enough to judge when watching the YouTube clip after the fact, but if you were there during the concert and didn't know it was coming, you'd probably think it was awesome (the guy filming it certainly did ).

Oh I agree. I would have gone crazy if I was there, and I am no fan of either. But for me it's kind of terrible mostly because of Madonna, some moves she does . But I value the idea and the effort by the two artists

969 501 158 showings as of this moment....it's just a matter of when, not if, it reaches 1 000 000 000.

EDIT! Slasher beat me to it. But more funny, 969 501 158 is from here:

Open the link, and you get a lower number (at the moment 969 133 413):
