"Without intelligible words...a little fat guy from Pyongyang."
"Waste of time...nothing like Elvis, Rolling Stones, The Beatles."
With Psy's "Gangnam Style" having recently surpassed Justin Bieber's "Baby" to become the most-watch YouTube video to date, Bill O'Reilly decided to dedicate an entire segment to deciphering the driving force behind the music video's success.
And who better to help him understand what people are thinking than Fox News's resident dime-store psychiatrist Keith Ablow — the "medical professional" who "resigned in protest" from the American Psychiatric Association over a disagreement on what constitutes a mental illness.
The five-minute meeting of the minds had many highlights, including Ablow's assertion that "Gangnam Style" was attractive to the masses because it was about "nothing," and that the song was mostly "without intelligible words."
O'Reilly held his own with quips about Psy being unlike Elvis because the latter "had a good voice, his songs had words," and "he put on a show," whereas the former is "a little fat guy from Pyongyang." (Psy is from the Gangnam District of Seoul, South Korea — hence "Gangnam Style.")
Without a shred of irony, Ablow concludes the segment by saying that enjoying "Gangnam Style" is wrong to the extent that "you use something to transport your way from real thought and deep feeling."
O’Reilly declared Psy to be a “fat little guy… jumping up and down,” and admitted there’s not really anything wrong with the video since, “you might lose a few pounds jumping up and down like a pony.” But Ablow warned that a video like this might be a problem if people continue watching it in order to distance themselves from reality. O'Reilly agreed that it was not a good idea to watch 7 times a day.
Ablow ended by calling it a kind of "drug" or "high".
