Move over, “Call Me Maybe.” The biggest Internet phenomenon at the moment is Korean rapper PSY’s hit music video, “Gangnam Style.” It wouldn’t be much of an Internet phenomenon, however, if there weren’t parody viral videos to complement the original. In true geek style, the Internet comedy troupe Comediva (Comedy + Diva) have made their version of PSY’s “Gangnam Style” with a Klingon twist. Check out Comediva’s “Klingon Style” Star Trek parody video below:
There’s no getting around it, this song is super catchy and infectious. It’s also ripe for parody, which is why it’s become such a hit on the Internet. “Gangnam Style” was only released in South Korea and to YouTube in July, and it still continues to be the center of amusement for Facebook feeds and email chains. But what separates PSY’s “Gangnam Style” from Carly Rae Jepsen’s “Call Me Maybe” or Rebecca Black’s “Friday” is that “Gangnam Style” is also a dance sensation that is sweeping the nation.
The Internet comedy troupe Comediva is a female-driven comedy team and website based in Los Angeles, California. Their videos are very geek-centric, including Geek Pick-Up Lines, which features prominent geek icons such as Starbuck from Battlestar Galactica and Hermione Granger from Harry Potter using cheesy pick-up lines to score dates. My personal favorite is BAMF Girls Club, which is a fictional reality TV series where geek heroines including Michonne from The Walking Dead, Katniss Everdeen from The Hunger Games, and Lisbeth Salander from The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo live together in one house. Check out the trailer for BAMF Girls Club:
