‘Gangnam Style’ Becomes Most Viewed YouTube Video

Its no wonder that Psy’s smash hit ‘Gangnam Style’ has recently surpassed Justin Bieber’s video ‘Baby’ as the number one video on YouTube. Everybody has been watching it, talking about it and dancing it. The Korean pop song acquired roughly 805 million views this week as it set the record. It has become an international icon and a song that you can’t escape from, despite persistent efforts. Especially in your new media class..

Since hitting the web in July the video has garnered views at a rate of 11 million per day, giving it the title of “the most viral, fastest-growing video of all time,” according to Starcount. We can only hope that soon a new sensation will strike the web and we can get the words “hey sexy lady” out of our heads. I will refrain from posting the video. I’m sure you’ve seen it.
