[URBAN NOTE] "Gangnam Style: Psy-mania hits Toronto"

Psy, of "Gangnam Style" fame, was scheduled to be coming to Toronto today.

The man behind a video that’s about to become the most watched in Internet history was in Toronto Tuesday.

Psy, the rapping sensation from Korea, was holed up in the Ritz Carlton for a number of media interviews. In town to help promote Samsung’s Galaxy Note II super-phone, Psy talked about his life since his “Gangnam Style” video exploded this summer.

[. . .]

On Tuesday evening, meanwhile, Psy will make his first live Canadian appearance at the Kool Haus, as part of Samsung’s marketing blitz. Doors open at 8:30 p.m.

Tickets were distributed through social media promotions. But if you're determined to see and hear Psy, there is still some hope: Show up dressed like the rapping dancer or bring your Galaxy phone. A few lucky gatecrashers will be selected from the line.

He didn't on account of Hurricane Sandy, but he promises to come back.

The man must be exhausted.
