People in China Are Being Buried...to "Gangnam Style"

Quote:

"Gangnam Style" seems so 2012. It is! But what does that matter when you're dead and want to oppa funeral style?


The song continues to get airplay in China, among the living and the dead, it seems.



First noted by a Weibo user (via ShanghaiIst), "Gangnam Style" is being used as dirges at funerals in cities like Nanjing. At lots and lots of them, apparently.



Yangtse.com (also via ShanghaiIst) reports that Nanjing officials are sick of hearing the song blaring from funeral halls, but they will "tolerate" the wishes of the recently departed so that, I guess, they can do the horsey dance into the great beyond.

What a great way to emphasise the depressing atmosphere at funerals.

Pfft! When I die, I'd probably do the same. It's our last meeting here on earth, people! Let me go with a party and smiles on your faces!

...of course I'd choose a different song.
