Welcome to hypermodern Malaysia, in which entertainment, hedonism, and political ethics are all enmeshed -- the body, mind and soul become a location of Asian capitalist exploitation and the reason for new age political campaigning as well, for a party in need of vulgar votes.
The little known Gangnam district of Seoul -- of red lights and high class high fashion, and high level prostitution became a glitzy and neon-ified womb of the "Gangnam-style" of dancing in which women and men beome horses riding each other in public, to the sound of techno-disco watched by a billion people on youtube and made into a craze by those who cannot see the logic of Korean gangsta culture as it travels the global conveyor belt of high-speed high brow higly-prized artifact of Asian capitalism imitating the vulgarism and gangsta-ism of cheap and disabling culture of gangsta rap of East L.A. and the 'hoods in the Bronx.
Women in the video love pole-dancing on the subway train, strip-club style- Gangnam-style much to the the amazement perhaps of Reverand Sun Young Moon of the Korean Unification Chuch -- if he were still alive marrying people off by the hundreds.
But hey ... , we are in Malaysia -- where everything, including degenerating culture, can be imported lock, stock ,and barrel to the tune of few million US dollars here and there for quick fifteen-minute vulgar shot of a high intensity, high vulgarity performance ... a good 5 million Ringgit perhaps that can be used to build schools in the most impoverised areas where Gangnam-styled horses would not even survive for the lack of good grass to graze ...
Bless us all ... may we have a Blessed Chinese New Year with Barisan Nasional ... in Malaysia these days, anything goes .. why not .. why not .. why not ... let them eat Gangnam mooncakes -- so that PSYCHO this nation will become!
