‘Gangnam Style’ Just Broke YouTube

Based on my calculations, that’s 17200 YEARS worth of humanity sunk into watching the music video…

This month it’s South Korean pop star PSY’s turn to break the Internet.

PSY’s viral “Gangnam Style” music video has reached a view count so high that YouTube had to update its counter, the streaming service said Monday on its Google+ Page.

“We never thought a video would be watched in numbers greater than a 32-bit integer (=2,147,483,647 views), but that was before we met PSY,” the Google-owned company wrote. “‘Gangnam Style’ has been viewed so many times we have to upgrade!”

“Gangnam Style,” the most viewed YouTube video ahead of Justin Bieber’s “Baby,” has been viewed as of Wednesday morning more than 2.15 billion times.
