Rapper’s Gangnam Style video garners two billion YouTube views and counting.
The wildly popular Gangnam Style music video cemented its place as one of the defining soundtracks of the digital age, smashing through the two billion barrier on YouTube.
The infectious and satirical mega-hit by South Korean pop star Psy became a worldwide sensation, fuelling a South Korean K-Pop trend after it was first uploaded to the popular video sharing platform in July 2012.
It continues to garner thousands of looks daily and already was hundreds of thousands above the two billion mark early Saturday.
Psy’s horse-riding-style dance moves in Gangnam Style have been mimicked in a myriad of videos uploaded to YouTube in various languages.
South Korea’s most successful recent export has also gained currency beyond YouTube, becoming often copied, much parodied and endlessly analysed.
