From Gangnam Style Covers to Psy Dolls

 - Dec 29, 2012
Earlier this year, Gangnam Style became YouTube's most viewed video of all-time and with that came a flurry of even more Gangnam Style covers.

The original song comes from K-Pop singer Psy off his 6th studio album PSY 6. Prior to Gangnam Style's release in July 2012, Psy was not on the international music radar, however, when his song started making the rounds on YouTube the world started watching.

Since the song has had such a massive influence on pop culture, there have been a lot of Gangnam Style covers. Most recently, Philly rapper Cassidy morphed Gangnam Style into Condom Style and rapped about safe sex practices. The Gangnam Style cover took off quickly as well and even landed Cassidy an endorsement contract with a condom company.
