“Gangnam Style” English translation video goes viral

Just when you thought it was over.

On Oct. 30, Korean pop sensation PSY landed in Toronto for his first Canadian interview with radio station Virgin 99.9FM and during the broadcast, on-air personalities Mad Dog and Maura played him this English translation of his viral hit, "Gangnam Style."

The clip, which was released in early October, stars NovaFM's Australian weekday radio host Jarrod Walsh with his partner in crime Wolfgang and is complete with English subtitles that PSY agreed were pretty accurate.

"First of all, who did this?" the 34-year-old rapper asked. "It's very close [to a literal translation.]"

Since the video's posting, it has gone viral with over 211,000 views but hasn't won over fans as many of them seem to prefer the original version of the track.

"TAKE ME BACK TO THE NORMAL SONG!" one viewer commented on YouTube.

Wrote another: "Finally I know what they mean, but now I wish I didn't :(."
