So you just saw I Got A Boy

by abitofaclosetalker


What it is
:
a hip hop/rap/power ballad mishmash (…it works somehow); stylistically the Bohemian Rhapsody of kpop

(Re)watch the official video – it’s nearing 82 million views

Watch it live and get the full impact of the killer dance and chemistry

Watch Tiffany accept the 2013 Youtube Music Award for it

Watch the other girls shamelessly make fun of her speech

Thought it was fun? Weird? Catchy? Thought Tiffany was cute and lovely? Thought the other girls were huge dorks? Thought they were all hot?

You have no idea.
