Psy's 'Gangnam Style' crosses 2 billion YouTube views

GANGAM STYLE PSY

Either everybody and their mother has viewed Psy’s video for “Gangnam Style” at this point, or some of you are still watching the South Korean pop star do the horse dance five times a day.

The video for the irrepressible dance song has now surpassed 2 billion views, crossing the mark shortly before midnight on Friday. The only other video with a billion-plus views on the streaming site is Justin Bieber’s “Baby.” But at 1.04 billion clicks, even “Baby” doesn’t come close to topping the unlikely viral star’s YouTube popularity.

Psy also holds another YouTube record: He scored the most views in a day with 38 million for his “Gangnam Style” followup, “Gentleman.”

Brush up on your lasso technique with another look at the video below:
