However, the Korean K-Pop sensation says the record isnt all its cracked up to be. If only we could tell him we like him for who he is, and not because he dances like a drunk cowboy. But never did I imagine the satirical formula and flailing dance would lead to the most popular video in the world. Such is life.

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. And yet… as soon as you click play, its impossible to look away; Gangnam Styles catchy beat somehow manages to ensnare you in its grip of awfulness, hypnotize you beyond your better judgement.Without rhyme or reasons, Psys world-dominating Gangnam Style has managed to surpass two billion YouTube viewsthe first ever video to do so.
Which one of you allowed this to happen Not even Justin Biebers 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 jokeand it kind of is, poking fun at Koreas famous Gangnam District, which rests just below the Han River. Psy actually has three videos in the top fifteen all-time on YouTube, which is mighty impressive. Psys follow up, Gentleman, also holds a record for most views in a day at 38 million; the videos view count currently rests at 700 million, a long way from the record-setting two billion.
