Beneath the catchy dance beat and hilarious scenes of Seoul's poshest neighborhood, there might be a subtle message about wealth, class, and value in South Korean society.

 

This is a pretty insightful cultural analysis of the sensation.

Add Iran's news agency to the long list of those hoodwinked by the satire of The Onion.

 

This just kills me.  It is another reminder to ALWAYS CHECK THE VALIDITY OF YOUR SOURCES, especially when they are coming from halfway across the globe.

This has got to be the funniest thing I've seen all week. Kind of reminds me of an epic fail I heard of a while ago (BBC, you're supposed to be looking for the United Nations Security Council, not the United Nations Space Command from the Halo games! /facepalm).
