BBC News: "Gangnam Style has become the first video to clock up more than one billion views on YouTube."
Really awesome !!! Please Teach me your dance style !!!Gangnam you rocks
this says it all http://farm8.staticflickr.c...
Thank god it beat Justin Beaver to the billion mark!
I have a newfound respect for anzs after he knocked bieber off the throne. May not be the best music i've ever heard, but it's miles above what was #1 before.
noone needs to see this video that many times its a fat guy dancing acting silly im sure where hes from had alot to do with 1b views like auto refresh programs running non stop to keep it in a loop like i said noone seen that video that much
Yes Dude you are saying true but views on you tube is not fake !!People like him that's why his videos reached to 1 billion.
one billion views... yeah okay racer x
As KwietStorm said, just because you hate the video doesn't mean you have to knock his success. If Google felt the views were artificial, they would have ignored those refreshes in their stats. Also Gangnam Style isn't restricted by usual music copyright patents, which assisted it (along with its 'virality') in becoming the most popular YouTube vid in the world. Seriously, if you don't know, don't assume.
If it was that easy. A Billion videos would have A Billion views meaning Youtube would have 10 to the 18th Power of views...lmao.
Seriously, if you don't know, don't assume. ? i typed up my opinion and closed the book.... you on the other hand act like what your typing is not wrong and 100% right it is your assumption aswell i doubt you know what ur talking about either about this particular video ur assuming everything u typed. youtube would not limit traffic on their site its free advertisement... man id hate to have a conversation with you..
Think for just a second. Why would YouTube allow spam/robot hits to clock up their advertising count. Those impressions actually go to waste which is why they always crack down on spammy views. I don't have a problem with opinions, but at least know what you're talking about before making a judgement.
You sound silly. You don't have to like it to accept it. This ain't a song I play in my car either, but it's been obvious for months that it's popular. And the previous most watched was Justin Bieber, so..
@ illmaster There's this thing called the news. And there is another thing called going viral. Check those things out sometime. Later!
Hater gonna hate.
That doesn't work like that ilii lol, youtube fixed that ages ago when they where shaping their partner program.
I've never seen the video.. that's about to change
i saw it on tv one day, it's better to listen to it
And to think I first saw the video when it was around 1 million views.
It's a fad that'll soon go away like dubstep
Yeah dubstep's only been going 10 or so years
A friend of mine bugged me for weeks to watch this video saying it was the funniest video he had every seen. I rolled my eyes and ignored him but after weeks of being annoyed I caved just so he would shut up. After watching it I think it would have been less annoying to allow him to keep bugging me. The video isn't funny it's just flat out annoying and the fact that it has that many views kinda makes me scared for the human race.
Why can't some other deserving Korean artists like BOA or Se7en have that kind of attention. I'd much rather sing and dance to they're music than PSY's one hit wonder. >_>
I actually really like this song. Not in the way I normally like music (Muse, Etc), but in the way it's unique and full of energy. It's supposed to be comical, and out there and they achieved that. If they found something people like, more power to em.
research on the view counts and the spread of the internet bandwagon should be done on this.
