You probably saw this coming, but Psy’s uber popular ‘Gangnam Style’ music has just one billion views on YouTube, making it the first ever video to reach that amount. The video also has the Guinness World Record for most YouTube likes with over six million as of posting.

But either way, sit back and take a break from the usual lawsuits that we’re accustomed to hearing about and enjoy some honest-to-goodness fun. OPPAN GANGNAM STYLE!

    @Eric989: I know, would be interesting if it was more than the original video! What I wanna know is what could possibly top gangnam style in the video. Maybe bacon pancakes? I hope so :)

  • Eric989

    @Enrique: Yeah, only 950 million more views to go to be number 1.
    I wonder what the view count on all of the parodies of Gangnam and Call Me Maybe are?

    I suppose it’s about time I gave up on avoiding it and gave in to the dark side. But yes, I have actually ducked exposure this whole time.

    I am a true monastic, heh…
