One South Korean TV network is not a big fan of PSY’s “Gentleman” music video.
Because of the rapper’s abuse of traffic cones. Didn’t see that coming, did you?
“Gentleman,” follows the star as he behaves like anything but, taking a soccer ball away from kids, pulling chairs out from under hot girls and so forth.
And, in the first few seconds, PSY walks up and kicks a traffic cone that reads, “No Parking.” KBS labeled the video inappropriate because of that.
The network said in a statement: “Infants or children haven’t fully developed a standard for judgment and tend to believe and follow what’s shown on television.”
“KBS’ standards are very different from online broadcaster or cable channels. This is because network TV is watched by everyone regardless of gender and age.”
Think of the kids, PSY. Think of the kids.
The best part? KBS likely didn’t bother watching some of the outtakes after the video, in which PSY defiles a cone (and street light poles) in other ways.
Jump ahead to the 3:15 mark:
As for PSY’s “Gentleman” lyrics … no one said anything about them, so they’re probably not too bad in Korean. In English … they just don’t make much sense.
