South Korea takes the dignity of its traffic cones very, very seriously. As you've likely heard by now, Psy has released his long-anticipated followup to his international hit "Gangnam Style." The new single, "Gentleman," follows the singer as he behaves like anything but. The video has already garnered some 144.6 million views on YouTube, but the South Korean network KBS has banned the clip for one very specific reason. In the first few seconds, Psy walks up and kicks a traffic cone that reads, "No Parking."

KBS has labeled the video inappropriate because of the cone punt, saying, "KBS' standards are very different from the internet, online broadcaster or cable channels. This is because network TV is watched by everyone regardless of gender and age. Infants or children haven't fully developed a standard for judgement and tend to believe and follow what's shown on television."

Think of the children, Psy. You can watch the clip below for yourself. Just don't blame us if you're compelled to direct some violence towards an innocent cone.
