Lo Pan Style Is The Only Gangnam Style Parody You Will Ever NeedBy: Zach Walton - October 22, 2012
Gangnam Style is getting a little old these days. Like with most memes, there’s nowhere for it to go but down. Rarely does a meme ever get a second chance at being great again. Luckily, Gangnam Style has found its savior in John Carpenter’s Big Trouble In Little China.
Big Trouble In Little China is a lot like Gangnam Style. They are both crazily hilarious experiences that caught on with their respective audiences and exploded in popularity. Some people will even claim that Big Trouble In Little China is the greatest film ever made, and I’m sometimes inclined to agree with them.
So what happens when you combine the two? A parody called Lo Pan Style that was shown off by John Carpenter himself this past weekend at Screamfest. Look out for a cameo from the original Lo Pan.
I think we can safely say that the Gangnam Style parody war has been won. Kim Jong Style made a valiant effort, but nobody could ever hope to win against Lo Pan.[h/t: io9]
