Gangnam Style crosses 1 billion views; sets new record on YouTube

When the world was busy oveririding the so-called Mayan Doomsday prophecy on Dec, 21, 2012, the year’s top chartbuster Gangnam Style of PSY has become the first video to cross one billion views on YouTube.

The South Korean dance track was posted online in July and the video was watched by over 7 to 10 million viewers every day since then, according to YouTube owner Google. Last month, it crossed the earlier record set by teeenage singer Justin Bieber’s music video Baby.

“Psy’s success is a great testament to the universal appeal of catchy music – and er, great equine dance moves,” wrote Kevin Allocca, YouTube trends manager, on the service’s blog.
