"The Weight of the World - NieR: Automata" is a high quality rip of the credits theme from NieR: Automata, "The Weight of the World".

Jokes Edit

The rip is a mashup of "Gangnam Style" and "See You Again" in reference to the latter replacing the former as the number one most-viewed video on YouTube. At 1:27, the vocals from the advertised track enter the song, and do so again multiple times. At 3:46, "Reset" from Ōkami enters the rip briefly. At 5:20, samples from an interview of John Cena where Cena talks about "Gangnam Style" appear.[1] At 5:34, 2B laments, "It always... ends like this...".

Visually, the rip's video contains several references to NieR: Automata's E ending, as indicated by the subtitle "The [E]nd of Style" and the title screen shown in the rip. At 1:21, subtitles parodying a segment in the game appear:

The familia program has initiated a purge.
If this continues, your style data will likely be deleted.
Artist 0P to Artist F7.
We were created to execute the corporation's Project Furious plan.
But when we familia and gentlemen were connected and exchanged information, something... happened.
I cannot deny the feeling of something resembling comradery and fellowship being born.
Unable to reply.

At the end of the rip, the phrase "PSY's data has been lost" appears in reference to the credits sequence in Ending E.

How can we not talk about family when family's all that we got?
Everything I went through you were standing there by my side
And now you gon' be with me for the last ride

Areumdawo sarangseureowo
Geurae neo hey geurae baro neo hey

Areumdawo sarangseureowo
Geurae neo hey geurae baro neo hey

Jigeumbuteo gal dekkaji gabolkka

[Autotuned to the chorus of "The Weight of the World"]
Eh eh-eh eh eh eh eh
eh eh-eh eh eh eh eh eh eh
It's like I'm carrying the weight oppa the world

Eh eh-eh eh eh eh eh
eh eh-eh eh eh eh eh eh eh
eh eh-eh eh eh eh eh eh eh eh

Maybe if I keep believing my dreams will come to life
Come to life...

It's been a long day without you, my friend
And I'll tell you all about it when I see you again
(Oppa Gangnam Style) We've come a long way from where we began
Oh, I'll tell you all about it when I see you again

Tell me God, are you punishing me?
Is this the price I'm paying for my past mistakes?

Areumdawo sarangseureowo
Geurae neo, hey, geurae baro neo, hey

Jigeumbuteo gal dekkaji gabolkka

Can you hear me now?

(Aah oh, aah oh
Wooooh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh)
Yeah

I wish that someway, somehow
That I could save every one of us (Oppa Gangnam Style)
But the truth is that I'm only one girl
(Op, op, op, op
Oppa Gangnam Style
Ah)

Maybe if I keep believing my dreams will come to life
Oppa Gangnam Style
Ah

Cause we're going to shout it loud
Even if our words seem meaningless
It's like I'm carrying the weight oppa the world

I wish that someway, somehow
That I could save every one of us
But the truth is that I'm only one girl

[With the "eh" version overlayed onto it]
Cause we're going to shout it loud
Even if our words seem meaningless
It's like I'm carrying the weight oppa the world

I wish that someway, somehow (Aah oh)
That I could save every one of us (aah oh)
But the truth is that I'm only one girl (Wooooh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh)
Yeah

Maybe if I keep believing my dreams will come to life
Oppa Gangnam Style

"Gangnam Style... it makes you feel good. Like, it transcends... everything and when you transcend race, creed, color, musical taste it just..."

Ah.

"It always... ends like this..."
