Go ahead and watch it one more time. And if you haven't heard "Gangnam Style" on the radio yet (some stations have it on rotation), you will soon:
"We've been hanging out in California for four days," Braun says in the low-fi video. "And we've come to an agreement to make some history together and be the first Korean artist to break a big record in the United States."
Braun, drinking the Korean alcohol known as soju next to the singer, added in the video tease, "To Psy, to Korea, to breaking down barriers, to the future. Let's do it man." Sources confirmed to Billboard.com that Scooter has indeed added Psy to his roster of Schoolboy Records artists.
