On October 24, Gothamist blogged about Chinese dissident Ai Weiwei doing his own Gangnam parody and marveled at the track's refusal to die:

"If you thought that Korean pop (K-pop) artist Psy's 15 minutes were over, THINK AGAIN. His infectious, worldwide hit, 'Gangnam Style' is still alive and kicking."

On the same day, CNN's Marquee Blog spoke of a Dancing with the Stars rendition of the dance. Their impatience boiling over, they even saw fit to put an exact time on it:

"It appears the viral sensation has a few minutes of fame left in it. On Andy Warhol's 15-minute scale, I'll clock 'Gangnam Style' at 11:57."

But my blogging brothers must be patient for a little while longer, because only one thing can truly end Psy's 15 minutes of fame and kill Gangnam Style forever: his upcoming English-language single.

No way, homie. It's like when Rebecca Black tried to release her "real" song. Nobody wants that shit.
