Those are some great looking meshes

A mix of g1 cartoon and classics molds there....

Almost as funny as the Klingon one

The animation on the horse-riding dance looks a little off. The emphasis is supposed to be on the stomping motion, but in the video it appears to accent the lifting motion a lot more. Might be a technical difference between giant robots and human skeletons. Still a great animation though, and I lost it when Omega Supreme and Devastator were dancing at the end.

First Thought: Please, please, please take this down before Michael Bay sees it.
Second Thought: Well, its probably better than ROTF

Is the joke within the joke that in Korea, "Gundam" has come to mean ANY large robot, be they mecha or sentient, due to bizarre international copyright issues allowing the term to be slapped on random knock-off toys indiscriminately?

So if like me, you just can't hear "Gangnam" as anything but "Gundam", no matter how hard you try, just keep telling yourself what Gundam means in Korean, and it's actually funny again instead of jarringly inappropriate!

Gangnam is an upper class neighbourhood in Seoul. This has nothing to do with Gundam. [/color]

And I thought the dancing on the planet of junk was bad.

Uh, yes, I know the song doesn't, but it still sounds like a "d" every time unless I REALLY try to hear "gn", and I'm far from the only one who hears it. I was speculating about the interpretation of whoever did this video. A good parody should have multiple, subtle layers, open to interpretation, and I like this one enough to hope it's no exception.

Could be worse, you could be hearing "Gungan" and picturing Jar Jar.

Okay this made my day.

I'm surprised Soundwave didn't make it into the vid. Even Powerglide got some screen time!

Brilliant... Absolutely brilliant.
I'm not ashamed to say I've been enjoying Gangnam Style and the various versions people out there have done. (FAROFF's "Gangnam Busters" Gangnam Style/Ghostbusters mashup on youtube being of particular note, as well as Klingon Style, Gandalf Style, Deadpool vs Gangnam Style, and several Minecraft videos to name some other entertaining ones)
This video, taking something I've been enjoying, and mixing it up with something very near and dear to me since childhood, just makes my day.

I love most of Dr. Smoov's stuff but I wish he'd give us a proper TF episode. This seems a waste of a great talent. Plus it's a slaggin' awful song!
