Without rhyme or reasons, Psy’s world-dominating Gangnam Style has managed to surpass two billion YouTube views—the first ever video to do so. Which one of you allowed this to happen? Not even Justin Bieber’s song Baby could take down the Korean juggernaut, only managing to amass a measly one billion views.
When Gangnam Style first hit back in 2012, I honestly thought it was a joke—and it kind of is, poking fun at Korea’s famous Gangnam District, which rests just below the Han River. But never did I imagine the satirical formula and flailing dance would lead to the most popular video in the world. And yet… as soon as you click play, it’s impossible to look away; Gangnam Style’s catchy beat somehow manages to ensnare you in its grip of awfulness, hypnotize you beyond your better judgement.
Psy’s follow up, Gentleman, also holds a record for most views in a day at 38 million; the video’s view count currently rests at 700 million, a long way from the record-setting two billion. Psy actually has three videos in the top fifteen all-time on YouTube, which is mighty impressive. However, the Korean K-Pop sensation says the record isn’t all it’s cracked up to be.
“The problem is my music video is more popular than I am,” Psy told the BBC, a single tear probably running down his cheek.
What a miserable existence Psy must live. If only we could tell him we like him for who he is, and not because he dances like a drunk cowboy. Such is life.
