Generations of "viral" tunes came together during this year's American Music Awards when the new hit dance senasation, PSY's "Gangnam Style," mashed up with a little ditty from yesteryear (1991, to be exact), MC Hammer's (aka Stakley Kirk Burrell) "2 Legit 2 Quit," and a new mind-numbing musical phenomenon was born.

The match made in heaven was the brainchild of PSY manager Scooter Braun (also the manager of teenage superstar Justin Bieber), PSY, who is a hair's breadth from owning the rights to the most viewed YouTube video of all time, explained to the Hollywood Reporter. "When I requested to close the show, me and my manager Scooter Braun talked a lot about… [it needed] to be special, to be big, to be massive, to be you know, something," he told us. "So we had a conversation on the phone — I was in Korea — and all of a sudden Scooter says 'How about MC Hammer?'"

And Hammer was delighted about the mashup, too, as well as meeting and collaborating with PSY. "Well, we absolutely love working together," Hammer told Billboard shortly after the performance. "He's a very humble man and a hard worker and I love working with him. We are cooking in the kitchen right now."

So look out — there might be more mashups in your future from the dynamic (albeit unlikely) duo.
