There’s not much I can add to this that hasn’t already been said. But, the Beavis and Butt-head part of me couldn’t help but chuckle when I saw that the doctor’s last name was Ablow. The fact that two old men who know next to nothing about music are critiquing and dismissing an “unintelligible” song because they can’t understand it. Wow. Just wow.
It’s one thing if the average Joe said that. But they’re saying this on something that’s supposed to pass for a news show. How could no one have done any research on this? The average 10-year-old could tell you the song is not sung in English, because PSY is singing in Korean. Because he’s Korean. And he recorded the song for the Korean market.
The average 10-year-old may not have known that PSY is a big star in Korea, with a dozen years of experience under his belt, and is an entertainer who’s quite famous for his stage shows. But O’Reilly should’ve. Any journalist worth his salt could’ve found this out with minimal research.
As for taking potshots about PSY’s looks—dismissing him as a fat, little man… O’Reilly and Ablow must think they share Hugh Jackman’s genetics. Otherwise, they would’ve realized they were the pot calling the kettle black.
PSY’s command of the English language is quite impressive, considering it’s not his first language. What’s O’Reilly’s (and Ablow’s) excuse?
