It may be the most successful YouTube video of all time, the first to reach one billion views, but it appears ‘Gangnam Style’ has lost its appeal in Rome.
Fierce city rivals Lazio and Roma were going head to head in the Coppa Italia final on Sunday, as the football season in Italy came to a close.
Enmity between the two sets of fans, which was seen in a few clashes before the match, had made this cup final a tense affair.
Perhaps the event organisers had than in mind when they chose South Korean pop sensation Psy, and his international hit ‘Gangnam Style’, as the half-time entertainment.
However, it appears Lazio and Roma fans were in no mood for Gangnam Style and it’s recognisable dance routine.
Once he had finished, Psy looked a little sheepish as the boos rang out from all corners – it was the only thing Lazio and Roma fans agreed on all day.
