Gangnam Style can remove a roughly 1 meter cube "block" of matter from anything it touches.  This has no effect on the integrity of the point of origin (even living things can continue to function with half of their bodies removed), until something else touches the block, effecting it normally.

Gangnam Style can be said to have a "silk touch" - even things like water, fire, or air can be harvested in this way.

If Gangnam Style puts the block down, and someone touches it, they may decide whether the block is permanently placed in its current position (with the obvious effects on its point of origin), or returns to its source, becoming seamlessly reintegrated.

Gangnam Style can only hold one block at a time.

If you don't know anything about JoJo's Bizarre Adventure this will seem more than a little confusing, but let me give a VERY brief sum up: In arc three, Stardust Crusaders, the characters start to develop this awesome super power called stands, basically it is a part of your spirit that manifests and 'stands' beside you (really imaginative Joseph Joestar....really) for a list of the different type stands and all the info you can want on them, visit The WIKI! This is probably my favorite anime/manga, one of the things it is famous for (other than its ridiculous glam aesthetic) are the constant music references. Almost everyone's names are reference to music, so of course my stand has to be a song reference. 

What does Gangnam style have to do with an Enderman? Well in the Gangnam style video there is a guy with a fabulous yellow suit and sunglasses. I often remark to Ben that I could rock the crap out of that outfit. There is also the Minecraft Style Video that uses Minecraft to parody the song/video of Gangname style. So the Enderman is a call out to both the epic outfit and Minecraft.

Ben developed Gangnam Style in a dream one night and I decided it was going to be my stand, I was originally going to have some sort of Creeper based stand using the song Creep by Radiohead, but sadly the Stand Killer Queen already blows everything up.
