Chicago Has Gangnam Style

The most inescapable and undeniable song of the year was PSY's "Gangnam Style," a sly satire of the insipid materialism and faux class of Seoul's Gangnam District, which the artist has described as his country's Beverly Hills.

The video is the most-watched YouTube upload of all-time - and also the most "liked." It's also likely the most parodied.

PSY performed the song in Chicago for the first time over the weekend. So here's the original video, that performance, and the "best" Chicago versions we've found.

1. The original.


2. In Rosemont on Saturday night.


3. Desi Flash Mob.


4. Chicago Style.


5. Maxima Chicago Gangnam Style.


6. UIC.


7. Chicago Korean Festival.


8. With Marshall the Marshmallow.


9. By Brett Sterling of the Chicago Wolves.


10. Chicago Thanksgiving Day Parade.


11. Chicago Marathon.


12. NBA ref at a Bulls game.


Comments welcome.
