Interview: PSY on 'Gangnam Style,' posers and that hysterical little boy

The 34-year-old rapper's "Gangnam Style" music video has gone mega-viral since its release a month ago -- clocking in at around 34 million YouTube hits as of the time of writing.

His momma is Korean, so he sees a lot of K-pop vids.
Apparently, the CIA was so busy watching North Korea, no one saw South Korea weaponize the Horse Rider Dance and launch it our direction.
