back to article EMC's Chad Sakac once made a Gangnam Style parody music video

Storage dudes! Drop what you're doing and play this three-and-a-half minute video of Chad Sakac singing and dancing in front of a bunch of racks. Gangnam-style, say hello to EMC-style. We know you’re wondering about the lyrics; these are of a sophistication as to make you gasp: Oppa EMC style EMC style They want the …

    Nope, this isn't right.

    If this is supposed to be rap, it needs something more:-

    1. The singer needs to repeat his name several times before starting

    2. The singer needs to boast constantly about how much money he has

    3. The singer needs to boast about the size of his car and the number of gadgets it has

    4. The singer needs to boast about his sexual prowess

    I'm sure somebody can come up with suitable extra lyrics to sort this out! Come on, I challenge ye!

      Correction...

      rap != hiphop

      Rap literally means talking fast. Back in the 80's I would have also dissed you on several other levels. However, hiphop is dead. So yes, it's true that most hiphop "artists" do talk about:

      1. dick/pussy size

      2. cash flow

      3. carz

      4. drugz

      Back in day when it was still underground, there were very deep and entertaining lyrics to be had from famous MCs - as famous as they were. Now, you have to really dig into the minor/underground/battles type stuff to actually find any sort of intelligence. As our Korean "MC" has shown. It's worldwide thing. The fools are getting more foolish. Soon they will be so foolish they forget to eat. Then it will happen. Utopia. Maybe I should be more cynical.

        @AC - I'm not sure I'd consider it a plus boasting about the size of one's mary-jane.

      Just look where he's pointing at "failed array". I think that counts as #4.

      (Also: my first reaction was "achdumeinescheiße.")

    I paused Radio3 for *that*?????

    Crikey, there are things that I'll never be able to un-see and that video is one...!

    Serious?

    You are assuming he WILL get serious at the launch today. Probably not a good assumption. There will be discussions of face melting, awesomeness and other colorful adjectives one can be sure.
