World star Psy’s new music video “Hangover” drew nearly 80 million views on YouTube on Monday, only 16 days after its release.
As of 6 p.m. on June 24, the music video had garnered 79,646,699 views and received more than 620,000 “likes,” which proves the steady popularity of the viral sensation.
The 5 minute music video portrays Korea’s unique drinking culture, with Psy and Snoop Dogg struggling to recover from a hangover after an alcohol-fueled night involving “bomb” cocktails, karaoke, billiards, bar fighting and vomiting.
The song does not feature unique dance moves like the horse-riding dance from “Gangnam Style” or hip-swinging dance for “Gentleman.”
But many fans find the song “oddly addictive,” especially with the swirling hip-hop beat and Snoop Dogg’s Auto-Tuned repetition of the word “Hangover.”
