Psy’s ‘Gentleman’ banned by South Korean broadcaster over abuse of public property
Was it the ungentlemanly behaviour he displays in the pop video? The way he farts in one poor girl’s face? Or the fact that he pulls off another’s bikini top? Leaving another sprawled on the floor after pulling a her chair out?
Nope. Broadcaster KBS has blacklisted the music video because Psy can be seen abusing public property. In the opening sequence the rapper kicks a traffic cone that says “No parking” before laughing uproariously and pointing at the camera.
An anonymous statement released by the broadcaster today said the scene doesn’t meet its high public standards as a broadcaster.
“Gentleman” was published on YouTube on Saturday and has already been watched more than 145,000 times.
It follows the success of the South Korean rapper’s “Gangnam Style” which has become the most-watched video on YouTube with 1.5 billion hits.
A The film has amassed an estimated $28.7 million in its opening weekend
