Psy received the Amped Up Anthem at the third Annual Cartoon Network Hall of Game Awards, which was held in the U.S. in mid-February for “Gangnam Style” as the song has been selected as the most popular song among athletes.
The Hall of Game Awards is an athletic game awards sponsored by the U.S. cable channel Cartoon Network. Psy received the award as his song, “Gangnam Style,” has been used in many games as a cheering song. Psy couldn’t attend the awards because he had to go to Malaysia for promotion.
On the official website of the Major Leagues last year, many parody videos of famous athletes dancing to “Gangnam Style” were uploaded. Faces of such popular baseball players as Clayton Kershaw (LA Dodgers) and Andrew McCutchen (Pittsburgh Pirates) were superimposed on the music video of “Gangnam Style.”
The song also received a lot of attention by being played at many Major League games.
Psy danced to the song at the Dodgers Stadium in LA last summer during the match between LA Dodgers and San Francisco Giants.
From last summer till now, “Gangnam Style” has become a big hit all over the world, including Asia, the U.S., the UK, South America, and even the Middle East.
Currently promoting the song, Psy visited Turkey on February 22 and came back to Korea shortly to attend the presidential inauguration on February 24.
Psy is currently visiting such countries as the U.S. and Brazil and some Southeast Asian countries. He will release a new song in April.
