Gangnam style is the first Youtube video ever to reach 2 (!!) Billion views!

Well, we have a thread for the Call me maybe song, and I believe this one deserves it even more.
The song was viewed almost 200 million times in 2 months that it's been on Youtube.
In case someone still hasn't heard it and seen the video, here's your chance:

I like it for its uniqueness, it's something really different than the usual American pop.
Also, the dance is great and chicks dig it.

Edit: 24 November- the Gangnam Style song reaches the amount of views higher than the number of views of the previous highest viewed video - Justin Bieber's song Baby.

Edit2: 21 December- Gangnam style becomes the first Youtube video ever to get over 1 Billion views!

Re: Your take on the Gangnam Style song

The video is funny and the song isn't that bad. Wouldn't be popular without the video though.

Only Del Potro can take him out before the semis, and he won't. Nadal is winning the AO, bet your house on it.

Exactly, video sets it apart. Otherwise, It's just a thirteen in a dozen pop song, sang in some Asian language.
It's the dance that makes it jump out.

Re: Your take on the Gangnam Style song

Video is great and unique, makes the song as mentioned above.

I first watched it when it "only" had 70 million views 4 weeks ago. Crazy view rate.

First saw this about a month ago and couldn't contain my excitement. Let's just say my local doctor has received a few concerned phone calls over the last couple of weeks or so...

Re: Your take on the Gangnam Style song

It's okay, but not sure what's the fuss. Then again, same could be said for any of the videos with 100+ million views on yt

Re: Your take on the Gangnam Style song

Video is funny but I wish I understood what he's singing/rapping.

Still better than most shit from America that's popular today.
