I arrived in Toronto earlier today. As I walked through the airport, I saw a sign promoting the game. Had 3 people on it. Marshawn Lynch, some Buffalo Bill, and this guy...



Quote:
TORONTO- International sensation PSY – the South Korean rapper known for his chart-topping single “Gangnam Style”– will headline the Hyundai Halftime Show featuring PSY, presented by KiSS 92.5, at the Buffalo Bills vs. Seattle Seahawks game at Rogers Centre on Sunday, Dec. 16. This marks PSY’s first public performance in Canada.

“Building on the incredible energy from last year’s victory over the Washington Redskins, we are upping the ante this year with a halftime performer who is bound to bring fans to their feet,” said Greg Albrecht, Executive Director of Bills in Toronto, Rogers Media. “This year, a ticket to this adrenaline-pumping football game is also a ticket to a world-class halftime event, with one of the year’s most iconic entertainment figures.”

PSY’s dazzling performance will lead the charge for the must-see halftime event, which will feature more than 60 dancers, the Buffalo Jills Cheerleaders, as well as hundreds of contest winners.

That might just make me dump my tickets if I had any.

Being that he called on United States troops in Iraq to all die you may want to retract that.

I hate politics anyway... no loss.

Does that mean his 15 minutes are up? Well, maybe they can still get MC Hammer. He still seems pretty limber for an older fella.

Yep. I am pretty sure a lot of folks are stepping back from the craze because of this. He apologized and probably just like Ice T, if he distances himself from his earlier rants against the US and its military forces, some will forgive him. The Iraq war, the beheading of the Korean evangelist and the US military accidental killing of the 2 13 year old Korean girls fed into a resentment that many in the country felt toward the US already during that timeframe. How much has South Korea changed in the 8 yrs since his rant culturally or politically? Not sure.

Similar in ways to Ice T playing to the distrust of Urban minorities toward law enforcement.

PSY in the Gangnam Style video may have just caught folks in the right groove. Not sure he is a long term global icon but that is just my read.

Don't agree with his politics, wouldn't go to his concerts but the video/song is catchy and goofy. So I give him that.

He made the comment back in '04 I believe. It is only getting brought up now because of his crap one-hit wonder and the fame that has come from it.

First I've heard of the political stuff. I wouldn't want to go because of the show. The whole Gangnam thing appeals to me about as much as a clorox enema. The first time I linked to the video, I lasted about 10 seconds. Reminded me of a cross between the macarena and being rick-rolled.

Enjoy the game.....cheer on our Seahawks. Go to the bathroom during halftime and pee on Psy philosophically.

It's a fine line between trash talk and genocide.

Only 'muricans act trashy a lot; true story. It'd be nice if we saw less self-loathing from people that actually believe every other civilized country has citizens way better than those of the U.S.

Yep. I'll never understand people's guilt for being part of a particular race or from a particular country.

I am wondering if this will be a longer halftime than normal - instead of 12 minutes more like a Super Bowl halftime show?? Sounds like a big production.

Considering that he has one song, it should. Be a regular half-time.

He talked trash in 04? okay. Scientifically speaking, and this is fact, not one cell in his body is the same, he literally is not the same guy he was back in 04. People change, both literally, and on every other level.
Now, if you want to be pissed about the fact that his song gets stuck in your head and you JUST CAN'T STOP SINGING IT, well, there you go. Have at it.

We tortured people, he didn't like it. War is a dirty thing so it doesn't bother me too much. That said, he's also expressed that he is tired of Gangnam Style.

Here's this guy because I just found the more smilies button: :chug:

So freedom of speech has no borders?

Oh, I forgot about "on foreign soil" rant.

While I would be offended watching his act, it wouldn't be for something he said 8 years ago.

I don't care for marching bands much either, except for the Cardinals' on The Play. Hearing Elway whine made me love them.

I'm so glad I usually go and make something to eat during halftime, I don't wanna be witness to an international tragedy.

Hell, he was probably right.

:salute:



Being that he called on United States troops in Iraq to all die you may want to retract that.

Context: It was said in 2004 in a part of worldwide outrage of the invasion of Iraq - which was based on lies about WMD's and propaganda that Iraq was somehow involved in 9-11 - and came after two 13 year old girls had been murdered by U.S. troops stationed in Korea who were released after being tried by a U.S. court instead of in the Korean courts.

So Americans were on the Koreans shit list at that time and deservedly so. I know that will tick off some "muricans" who can't accept the war in Iraq was only about grabbing oil resources, but that's how Koreans saw it at the time and that's what the war really was about, so they were correct. You can hold a grudge against the guy if you want. Me, I figure he was caught up in the heat of the moment and he's apologized. Also, he's quoted as saying "Yankees" but what he said was "bitches".

You want respect from the rest of the world, you have to earn it by not letting sleazeballs like George Bush lie you into a war. We should have been in Afghanistan chasing Osama, not wasting our military in Iraq deposing a dictator we set up in power to begin with, just so we could seize their nationalized oil for Halliburton.

If it was in 04, that is a big time frame.

I find it seriously ironic that any South Korean can talk shit about american military. If it wasn't for us, his ass would be starving to death just like the North Koreans are right now.

That said, my kids love his song. My 17 month old dances around and smacks me in time to the beat. It's seriously awesome. My oldest one is 3, and he knows every word of that Carly Rae song. You learn to live with it when you have kids.

I think it is pretty obvious nobody cares about context behind the his original comments. All people are seeing is somebody trashing US soldiers in an awful way, God forbid that somebody doesn't thank them for their sacrifice and not turn a blind eye, like so many of us here, to some of the awful things Bush had our soldiers doing which they got away with.

I, for one, think this is AWESOME!!!

It's not like I love the song all that much, but I love a good spectical. Besides, they could have brought in Extreme, Rush, or (shudder) Nickleback!!!

Gangnam style is far more tolerable. WOOT! WOOT! Sexxxxy Lady!

We tortured people, he didn't like it. War is a dirty thing so it doesn't bother me too much. That said, he's also expressed that he is tired of Gangnam Style.

Here's this guy because I just found the more smilies button: :chug:



Um...

The 34-year-old rapper says the protests were part of a "deeply emotional" reaction to the war and the death of two Korean school girls, who were killed when a U.S. military vehicle hit them as they walked alongside the road. He noted anti-war sentiment was high around the world at the time.

If it was in 04, that is a big time frame.

I find it seriously ironic that any South Korean can talk shit about american military. If it wasn't for us, his ass would be starving to death just like the North Koreans are right now.

That said, my kids love his song. My 17 month old dances around and smacks me in time to the beat. It's seriously awesome. My oldest one is 3, and he knows every word of that Carly Rae song. You learn to live with it when you have kids.



What did United States do to help South Korea in 2004?
