In one of the more bizarre collaborations to be unleashed upon the music world, South Korean Pop sensation Psy, of Gangnam Style fame, has teamed up with rapper Snoop Dogg in a regret-themed single called Hangover.
After making its debut on American late-night talk show Jimmy Kimmel Live! on Sunday, the song was posted to YouTube where it has already notched up more than 14 million views.
The track explores the morning-after effects of a night of drunken revelry, with the staccato repetition of the word "hangover" comprising the bulk of the song's lyrics.
Opening with the scene of Psy doubled over a toilet while Snoop Dog mimics a back-patting motion to the song's jarring beat, the video then shows the pair taking the "hair of dog" approach to hangover recovery. Scenes of cheap reverence for alcohol ensue.
While the viral video has been dubbed "art" by Time magazine, many fans have been far less generous in their summations on social media.
This Hangover song by Psy & Snoop Dogg is pretty much the epitome of why everyone should hate the internet..
