'Gangnam Style' is most watched video in history

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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.
