Wow, Bill O’Reilly is Incredibly Out of Touch [VIDEO]
Some people on television get paid a lot of money to say whatever they think. Bill O'Reilly is among those types of people. He also may have just proven he's way out of touch with Americans.
PSY's "Gangnam Style" has been viewed more than 800,000,000 times on YouTube. More than any other video on YouTube. If you add other video hosting sites, it's probably over 1 billion views.
Yet, conservative blowhard Bill O'Reilly and some guy who probably hasn't had a conversation with someone under the age of 30 in a long time took an almost offensive stance on the catchy and clever tune.
The problem is two-fold:
- Bill O'Reilly shows zero respect for PSY, who by all accounts is a pretty nice guy, and continues to be humbled by his success with a foreign-language song in a foreign country that typically doesn't jump on board with things that aren't "American."
- This guest repeatedly says that the song means nothing. Hello! It means nothing to you because you don't speak Korean, nor have you ever taken the time to figure out how the lyrics translate and what they could possible mean.
I enjoyed the comments I saw after watching this video, especially these ones:
I really enjoyed that first comment, where the person points out that PSY's video is a commentary on a particularly pretentious group of people in Korea. I can only imagine that group isn't too different from the high-society people Bill O'Reilly himself probably hangs out with.
