Psy’s Gangnam Style and the end of the World on Friday December 21, 2012.

No, it isn’t happening, the supposed prediction from Nostradamus that when Psy’s video reaches one billion viewers, the world will end. It was all invented, as reported at GMA News: admits to ‘inventing’ end of the world prophecy involving Gangnam style. It isn’t even a hoax, because there was no intent to deceive. It will be great if the video reaches one billion views on Friday, December 21st, 2012, the day some talkaloti conspiracy theorists say that because the Mayan calendar ends, the world would end. You would have to be living in a cave not to know that – it is all over the media. Or maybe you are living in a cave because you are stocked up with food and supplies for whatever cataclysm overtakes us.

I was about ten years old when I first heard of that date on the Mayan calendar, and thought it would be fascinating to spend the day at an ancient Mayan Temple, perhaps waiting for the aliens to return – that is one interpretation, that the Mayan gods will return. That means: the aliens are coming! That would be fun.

Instead, I will help Psy get to 1,000,000,000 views. I showed his video at my Toastmasters group today, and sent the YouTube link to my BNI group. I am doing my part. Nice catchy song, interesting video. Shallow but sure is entertaining. For your enjoyment, and to make it easier for me to find the video, here is a link to Psy’s Gangnam Style on YouTube, and embedded here. As of this embedding, the count is 971,518,818:
