If you have yet to watch Psy's "Gangnam Style" video you may be the only one.
According to Billboard, it just became the first video to garner more than 1 billion views on the Internet (cue the wailing from Justin Bieber fans).
The video recently overtook Bieber's "Baby" video as the most watched on YouTube, breaking the teen heartthrob's former record of 803 million views.
Billboard calculates that "Gangnam Style" is watched 76.4 times per second. They cite Next Big Sound in theorizing that, at its currrent rate, Bieber's video won't cross 1 billion views until 2014.

is afraid we're going to wave at her husband–she is so afraid and she's a world class millionaire.
This goes to show how stupid the panet has become to listen to this garbage, Elvis must be rolling in his grave. And you call this character and the 'beaver' talented..helloooo I don't think so.
could be crushed.
surprised she is drinking with the 2nd one. strange...
about psy use...keys unlocked?
‘Gangnam style’ is as it is, but if you want to have more fun, rather watch ‘Mitt Romney style’ or ‘Obama style’ – and many, many alike – on Youtube.

Nice ,We sell bags and Shoes
I don't even like the style of music, but I enjoyed that video. He's funny and intelligent. Some of you didn't get the humor.
I never saw it. Don't want to either.
And yet here you are, clicking on the article and even posting your inane, non-comment. What makes nits like you tick?
Huge steaming dump. Tasted better than it smelled.
She go mewreed.
The only news item in 2012 that made me smile. Congrats, Psy. 2012, BYE.
Its disgusting we are supporting a artist that sings about killing Americans
Yet your username is "protect Psy in America".
he sang about the military who abused prisoners in the prison of Iraq.. get your facts straight.
JZG: its protest learn to read....
Johndoe: last time i checked the US Military is made up OF Americans plus he says AMERICANS read the lyrics and now the facts because like most your clueless
All those — Yankees been torturing Iraqi captives and
All those — Yankees who ordered them to torture
Kill their daughters, mothers, daughters-in-law and fathers
Kill them all slowly, kill them all painfully
Just by clicking on this article makes you a support via ad dollars to CNN. Psy and CNN thank you for your patronage.
Would calling him the lil yellow fellow make you feel better?
psi has to be careful with career decisions in his life–especially with the ones he views as the "weak"
you do not photo well either.
Not sure how all those worms got into my pooh. They seem to be enjoying themselves though.
i'm so happy my man friend has decided to only want to see me now. it makes me happy.
Save your bucks psy-you'll need them.
God Bless You
PSY is the new William Hung.
Except William Hung was terrible. PSY has a legitimate career in the music industry.
Nope, never seen it and don't plan it, either.. Thank You.
I haven't watched it. And I don't plan on watching, either.
Believe it or not I have never seen it...
Can you say Rick Roll!
Sokman's guilty pleasure #8... Its my ringtone. Was he the wierd little asian dude in The Hangover? That guy was insanely funny
Trash for the trashy of the world. How pitiful such unadulterated tripe passes as entertainment.
The continued dumbing of humanity.
This is just a wild guess but you're a dick aren't you? Come on, tell the truth.
I hope every person who passes the video and song off as stupid and judges Psy as a terrible person for speaking out against the military presence in Korea speaks Korean proficiently enough to understand both the literal and satirical meanings of the song and is educated on the recent history of our presence in Korea. Otherwise, shut up.
Congratulations. You've just won the 2012 Bag of Wind Award.
i hope so...the cheating thing is so serious nowadays. alot of guys are actually good at it now.
F him. I agree with OP. Just another pop music d bagger.
I categorically refuse to watch this Gayman style BS. So it can only ever be everyoneintheworld -1 (me) who have watched this video. Sounds totsgay.
who was the photographer for this movie?
I haven't watched it on YouTube. So you're telling me because it has reached 1billion views on YouTube that almost everyone on planet earth must have watched it? You're a moron.
Your the moron, not everybody on the planet has access to a computer. Chances are if your on cnn.com and you are reading this article chances are you have watched gangnam style at least once.
He's not a moron – I haven't heard of this $t.. I'm sure these Chinese fellas know how to get a billion views with some Chinese computer program! You the moron!!
umm Rob? Hi, yeah, it's "you're".
uhm people can watch it more than once. so it doesn't mean 1 out of 7 of everyone in the world have watched that video.
We may have heard about it, yes, but it doesn't mean we bother to bring it up on youtube and watch it. Just like if everyone is talking about a video of someone taking a dump on their cat's head, it doesn't mean I'm gonna be inclined to jump on youtube and watch it also. Pop Culture = Sheeple Culture.
@Rob. I have a computer. I haven't watched the video. And I don't plan to do so. One picture says a thousand words. This picture just happens to say one word that would prevent me from seeing it.. "STUPID"
@Rob. I have a computer. Not seen it. And won't. One picture says a thousand words. This picture just happens to say one word that would prevent me from seeing it.. "STUPID"
Uhm actually, in youtube you can watch a video more than 1 time but it still says you've watched it once, because its from the same user. So, it might be more the a billion, Second, some people don't have computer access in the world; many don't. Your just one of the people who are lucky enough. For everyone who replied to this person, some corrections are needed.
: 1. Psy is Korean, not Chinese...(oh, and u don't call people little asian dude either, even if you can't actually see the person....!)
2. Respect EACH OTHER!!!! Even if it is on computer or laptop, you treat others the way you want to be treated, and i don't know about you guys, but i learned manners and i care about those etiquettes!
Love thy neighbor.
Poor Psy...needs some lessons from ben affleck.
nobody laughs harder then we do–lord i really need another award..the last one i received was a week ago.
bought it hook line and sink
psy is a putz
putz, but with 1 billion reasons to Laugh at you....putz
my india friends know how to act-navdeep beautiful.
hide behind your truck and bathroom that will help you deal with life
I love how Americans can bash any country they want but when someone bashes America suddenly everyone becomes offended. Respect is earned, NOT freely given. If you want to be respected you have to show you deserve that respect. America has shown time in and time out that it doesnt deserve respect, it would rather be the biggest Bully in the school yard.
we're looking for a criminal..get lost
your looking for a criminal? how about arresting everyone who has their job or occupation listed as politician.
pulls through all the time...
Careful now, if you defend yourself against the gun-carrying schoolyard bullies in American schools there'll soon be cops in there with guns, too. Keeping law and order, of course
'Merica!!! Our country can beat your country up....nana nana booboo!!! :-p
To all of those that disagree with prior lyrics from the artist that deal with killing Americans / soldiers:
These lyrics should be of no consequence to you. If you are one that believes in the rights of man, and assuming those rights include the freedom of speech, one person exercising his or her rights should not affect you.
If you don't like his lyrics / past lyrics don't listen to him. Exercise your capitalistic freedoms and spend your dollars elsewhere - simple solution.
Go back to North Korea.....you are not tall enough to go on this ride Kim Jong Shortie.
at 6am on a monday morning with the entire orchestra...do we need permission? let me see if i can still hit those notes
Congrats Psy on knocking that brat off the top spot. I'd rather listen to Gangnam Style 1,000,000,000 times than any Bieber song ONCE.
excellent work. thank you.
I congrats to him!
He might be an AMerican-hating infidel,but everytime I see his chubby,flat Asain face and stupid shiney tuxedo,I go crazy with laughing.
I so a T-Mobile( I think) ad with him in Time Square and I couldnt stop LAUGHING!!!
chilly in those rooms...
Sad commentary on people who waste time watching videos... I would, but I have a job that allows me to pay for them to sit on their a** and watch videos all day!
Yeah! Because no one who has a real job also has time to surf the interwebs! Dammit people like you are pathetic.
Hey John sorry to hear that you're inept at planning a day. There are however many people easily more skilled then you in being able to work 8-12 hours, eat, socialize, shower, sleep, and watch movies video's in a 24 hour period.
you were perfect....what great contacts i have.
After 6 months, Psy's video still makes me laugh.. each person has these little facial expressions that are hilarious!! And he's been making music for 12 years, it just shows that if you prepare hard enough and put your heart into your efforts that you will be ready to take advantage of an opportunity when it comes! If you see typical Kpop videos (like Orange Caramel's Lipstick, Hyuna's Bubble Pop, or B1A4 Tried to Walk) it's surprising that his non-typical comedy is the one that hit so big. Good for him.
Gaggem style.gag me.psyc of psy
Psy's the only one with any balls. He rightly condemned a military that rapes, murders, robs and sells drugs and weapons. The rest of you are as delusional as the NRA.
He also talked about killing Americans. I noticed you left that part troll.
Shouldnt we back our Military men and be PROUD of them? We are FREE because they are the BRAVE. I thank God for them.HappyNewYear
shut up mexican
is right...live there
lets hope that where the phat phuck is going.
Enjoy your vacations!!!
WE SEE THE DAILY BLOGS...THE REAL ONES...
Psy hates the USA.give back our money and get the hell out of here
can you help us with this issue? if you have any info let us know thanks!
God Bless you and enjoy the holiday time off!
No he doesn't. He hates the military machine and the "neocons" like the gop who love to go to war. Big difference. I am a usa loving american that hates the same thing.
More proof that breathalyzers should be required to post a comment
Proud to be one of the few that hasn't watched that nonsense (in other words, one of the few people who have some taste)..
So you haven't watched it, but you somehow know its tasteless and nonsense?
It's just fun, man, get a sense of humor.
Srvsacht – it is mind-numbing tripe. Please stop killing your brain cells with crap.

Reblogged this on lAkUnLeScReWs and commented:

JUST WENT INTO THIS WOMANS CHECKING ACCOUNT ...WHO WAS IT...
and the abuse to this woman
peace offering bomb...best to you and yours.
he looks like a weirdo
He's a famous Korean pop star. Watch his interviews, he's surprisingly intelligent.
i hear he is good with computers...
I'm sure you look like a weirdo too and earning a fraction of what psy is earning... bwahaha
run along now...have a merry christmas
its happy hour time. nobody respects peace.
I never watched this. I first heard the song 2 months ago. Maybe I am strange, but I don't get it.
LET ME SEE YOURS PHAT PHUCK.....
EVERYTHING REMAINS....WE CLOSED THE DEAL WITH THEM FOR PEACE...BUT NOW....FORGET IT EVERYTHING STAYS
IN THE SYSTEM...AFTER THIS CALL FROM CAP 1---BEST OF LUCK TO YOU AND YOURS IN 2013--WHOEVER YOU ARE....
he's proved to be disgusting every single day of my life...not matter how hard you try to let it go the phat phuck
starts again...........MERRY CHRISTMAS.....its happy hour...enjoy
Psy is funny and talented. A pop comedian of sort. Also a grounded family man. He deserves his success.
As the article said, I'm guessing I'm one of the only ones that's never seen the video, nor really knew what it was. I kept seeing all sorts of mentions of Gangnam on forums, in games, parodies, then this article, and I kept asking, "what the heck is Gangnam Style"!? I finally just watched the video on YouTube, and not that it's bad, but how in the heck did it become the most watched video ever!? I feel like my parents when they didn't understand my music growing up... but this is like 100 times over... how!? I would have thought Rick Roll(ed) would have reached this milestone far earlier, lol.
It probably got as many hits, not because it's so great, but because of people like you and me who had no idea what it was and watched it because of that :)
madonna was just phoned 7 girl...get the eff out of my face....
The Mayans were waiting for this milestone...now the world may end.
THANKS CAP 1–AS IF IT DOESN'T HAVE ENUFF PROBLEMS
Just shows how stupid we are as a species.
Don't be so grumpy. It's fun, funny and well-produced. I think that says great things about our species' capacity for creativity and joy.
psy sits in all day.....let's hope he can get ticket sales this week....instead of looking at accounts payables all day long
anymore...gee wonder why...try smiling..that could help
Hopefully in a few days we can say, "That's so 2012." And, then let's not speak of it again...please!
where nobody knows what they did
ahead maybe i'll introduce them to psy
Proud to say I've never heard the whole tune or video in it's entirety. I've seem some very annoying bits of it, it's impossible to avoid seeing some of it. Never made me wana see more of it tho...
for psy today
Poor thing...another bad concert for you psy.
this was especially created just for psy...thank you.
i'm sorry for you embarrassment with everyone. lucky its fake and made just for you
Now he has hit a billion its about time we started catching up. Check out our spoof version that made UK press. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KJWthUKfXYg
weeks ago dear...keep up with the times.
Naspa ce nasaoala e melodia si dnsaspa o urasc
psy visit the accounts payable department
I would rate it on a par with the twist.
IMHO it is a simple dance for simple people.
he's proved to be disgusting.
You left out a 'not' there...
Thank you again.
stop that rhyming and i really mean it!!! anybody got a peanut
psy is useless – ok?
I'm not ashamed to admit that I've seen the video and I love it. Let the man have his fifteen minutes.
this jackwagon hates americans he is just goin for numbers.although his video is funny hes a lame terd in a pool of poopoo
can't stand psy and his parents
After reading this I decided I didn't want to be only person not to have seen this video .... Now that I have watched can you please get me back me my 4:13 it took me to watch it ..... Awful!
why my message did not go through..hate psy and his moma
You've answered your own question
Good for him. A month ago I saw a funy picture of PSY and Nostradamus, siting his prediction "From the calm morning, the end will come when of the dancing horse the number of circles will be 9." The photo, which I can't find, posed the question...if this video hits 1 billion on 12/21/2012, is the prediction true and will the world end? I think it's funny, but he did hit 1 billion ON 12/21/2012.
psy a decent person...there you go.
who is this guy
The who/what ?
and that's a dern shame considering how badly he hates Americans and American military. I'm ashamed to say that a few of those hits were mine. Pathetic...
Actually the comments we made a decade ago when korean's were furious at american soldiers stationed in Korea for raping a 12 year old girl (By the way those men were tried and found guilty). I think that his words are quite forgivable.
psy does a bad show.
its amazing how much americans inflate their military and want to destroy anything that has a different opinions than them.
How is this news worthy?
The first ever Youtube Billionaire is from Korea; that has cultural repercussions.
Having watched Psy's interviews and other videos, he deserves it. He's quite intelligent and talented. Plus he's awesome.
i do not believe so.
So is this the end of the world we were waiting for?
im pretty sure "Christmas Story" is the most watched video ever since its on 24hrs ever year on christmas
A truly sad commentary on the current human condition.
Hmm. Let's see, should I watch Psy or Honey Boo-Boo...
They're both chubby.Still i prefer watching psy,at least he's not stupid.
And yet another low point for mankind's intellect
Why? It's a music video and a very catchy song too. Why is that so bad?
You try and write, sing and perform a hit song. :)
He he. Agreed. I can't watch the video in its entirety any more (and I don't know how to unwatch it now). The tune is catchy though.
poor dear–maybe tomorrow it will be better for you
Still better song than anything Bieber could muster.
people hate PSY because he is a foreign.. and how he isnt overinflated by MPAA/RIAA
Oppa! Psy > US.
Psy is awesome.
go home & take your anti-US sentiments with you
Shut up Mexican
Dan, he wasn't talking to you , but that was funny.
bubba your an idiot, but then again your a bubba. btw, nevermind , cant stoop to your bubba mentality
Come on guys, why do you have to be so vain? The entire US population could only account for 1/3 of the views on this video. Why do you have to assume that his support is from US citizens. Wake up, there are ALLOT other people living in the world....
most people don't take the time to investigate or understand what is being portrayed in the media. Iv'e seen so much landfill media being shown on T.V and the internet and everyone seems to jump on it and "Hip-Hip-Hooray it" before they see what foolish damage it causes, and who it influences. Booze-marijuana-gay rights?
Koreans don't kill Americans. Americans kill Americans. With guns. And they do it for money. And they laugh while doing so. And they buy iPhones of the fun to upload videos, to share them with peers.
