The issue doesn’t hit newsstands till Sunday, but apparently when The Observer’s food critic Jay Rayner sits down with the K-Pop star on the fast track to becoming the first YouTube video to hit one billion views, it’s cover-worthy.
“Shall we dance?” the cover photo asks of Jay and Psy as they size one another up. What could this mean? Will Psy take Jay on a Korean food crawl of London? Will the imposing 6+ foot tall food critic master his formidable and lanky limbs and organize them into a coordinated execution of the horsey dance? Will there be more in-depth analysis of the cultural and socio-economic implications behind Gangnam Style, because we sure didn’t get enough of those all summer? WE HAVE NO IDEA.
Check out the cover below, presented in its entirety — okay, fine, it’s presented so you can see Psy’s awesome houndstooth pants — for your interpretation.
