Well... when I searched, there were some references to social networking sites talking about the video going viral... so that is why I assumed social networking played a role in spreading the word.

Gangnam Style is the very poster child of viral popularity. Without Youtube, nobody outside of Korea would have ever heard of PSY.

I can't really blame anyone for distancing themselves from the festering pit of narcissism and superficiality known as social media, even when it's not appropriate to do so.

While it is not really my cup of tea, but I can see why the tune is catchy. I'd rather see that get over a billion hits, than Bieber's crap.

I have no clue why you tied that to social networking. I mean, it's pretty much a huge international phenonenon. I've never seen it posted on Facebook (and I've actually never watched the video), but I've seen it mentioned here, mentioned on other messageboards, worn as Halloween costumes, mocked on South Park as being an overdone Halloween costume, done at weddings, etc.

Don't blame your lack of pop culture references on "not into social networking." It's nothing more than being sheltered from stupid pop culture references. Which also isn't being said as a negative, lord knows I'm sheltered from half the stupid pop culture references out there. I have no clue who's won any American Idols, but I'd never preference that with "since I'm not into social networking..."

1. Youtube ban lifted for 3 minutes Jan 2, 2013, 11:07 Creston
 
95% of Pakistani population tries to watch Gangnam Style. Government quickly puts ban back in place.
