The Gangnam Style fad has almost faded and it's the Chinese New Year fad here where I live so my brother thought of mixing both together. He came up with the parody song for Gangnam Style called Oppa Cai Shen Dao. He did a game for it: /portal/view/609050

That was a while ago. Later I did this animated music video for that song. Thought it would be funny! :D
I know some of you don't like Gangnam Style, personally I don't like it either but neither do I hate it.
If you're not familiar with chinese tradition here are some term explaination:
sacapme - literally translates to 30th night. This is the usual way the chinese quote the night right before the first day of Chinese New Year
cai shen - Wealth God or God of Wealth. A God the Chinese believe administers wealth. Cai Shen to Chinese New Year is like Santa Clause to Christmas.
tua teng - literally translates to 'big meal'. The Chinese would refer to this as 'big dinner'or 'reunion dinner' because this meal is often eaten as the dinner on sacapme(refer above)

Hope you guys enjoy!

Having been raised in MY, I appreciate the humour. Good work! I don't know what to say about what the 'lions' look like, but "PSY" and Cai Shen look quite convincing.

Oh, and ATM rosak problems even happen on this end. :P

Have you considered doing something similar with other songs? Because that would be just fantastic.

Awesome man, so well done. I mean, to be honest, I would liked the original music a little better just to really solidify the parody, but that's a small detail to pick at. This was great! Love the theme, the quality, the humour everything :D


Rated 5 / 5 stars

Awesome, this was just awesome. I wasn't a big fan of the original Gangnam style video, though I do admit it stuck in my head, the tune was catchy as hell. Since then there's been an endless stream of parodies based upon it, but this is definately the best one so far. Not only does it have an Asian theme, just like the original, but it's based upon a both strange and relatable concept. Wanna buy stuff, give me money! :) I can dance to that.

The main character looks just like Psy, and overall all the characters are very well-designed, they're detailed (especially the traiditional clothing on the surrounding characters) and the dance moves are booth smooth and true to the original video. The backgrounds are varied, and the go along well with the music, and then there's the music, too! Great work on that, it's all in tune with the original melody too! Even without the explanations this was great to watch, but with those it definately gains some meaning. Keep up the great work!
