Wait, the "Gangnam Style" Remix is Actually Kinda Good?

So today, a remix to the ubiquitous "Gangnam Style" hit the Internets, and despite the sheer novelty of calling in Diplo, 2 Chainz and Tyga to remix an already-novel novelty song, it's actually pretty good. This shouldn't be surprising at all, because 2 Chainz and Tyga are remarkably capable rappers and Diplo usually makes the best of whatever goofy thing he's been called in to do. This time around he kinda turns "Gangnam Style" into a version of Rick Ross and Lil Wayne's "John," and 2 Chainz has one verse that is good and one that reinterprets the "If You're Happy and You Know It Clap Your Hands" song, while Tyga decides that "Gangnam Style" actually refers to being in a gang. It's not exactly the new Rustie song, but if you ranked it in relation to every single other song that ever existed it would be in the upper middle quadrant, and that's good enough.
