Another wacky version of ‘YMCA’!?
Remember a few months ago when one of SparkPlugged’s favorite ‘topics’, Hard Gay released his PV rendition ‘Young Man’? It was a cover of the Village People’s hit song that everybody knows, ‘YMCA’.
Well, yet again there is another cover gracing the likes of cyberspace. Currently the featured movie on Daily Motion, a comical Korean cover is all the rage. The song is sung by a comedian named E-Pak-Sa. Oddly enough, there is Japanese caption text in the video. That is most likely due to the fact that E-Pak-Sa was a bit of a hit in Japan in the mid-90’s. I can only assume that this video well pre-dates Hard Gay’s of course.
Both the simplistic synth sound and the tone of E-Pak-Sa’s singing voice add to the humor. This version of ‘YMCA’ is geekier and not nearly as homosexual as Hard Gay’s. I must say how this video got a huge laugh out of me. Time to watch?
