In this installment of “Who Run the World?” we’re looking at two trends that are rocking the globe: K-Pop and recreational drugs.
Two of the world’s biggest stars, together at last
That scene with the shot-glass domino effect was bitchin’
We cannot imagine a more fun time in the world than skipping through an amusement park with Psy and Snoop
Lie around sleeping all day
Prone to flying into berserk rage
Looked down upon by their closest relatives
Winner: Drug-Addled Pandas
Surprised? We’re looking at a few angles on this one. First off, “Hangover” was a great song, but it’s not nearly as catchy as “Gangnam Style” or “Gentleman,” and we think that’s because so little of it is actually in Korean. If we want to listen to K-Pop, we want to listen to a language that most of us (except for our friends Myeongyun and Hyun Jin) can’t understand.
But there’s a more serious issue at work. Think about how addictive drugs are. And think about how addictive pandas are. If you don’t know how addictive pandas are, take a look at the Panda Cam for a few days straight. Now mix the two and see if you don’t find a way to bring society to its knees.
