Gangnam Style has more views than YouTube can count
It has been two years since PSY's 2012 song "Gangnam Style" became a crazy viral sensation, but the music video is still going strong and breaking records! After being the first video to hit 1 billion and then 2 billion views on YouTube, it has now gotten so big that it officially broke YouTube, stalling out their view counter because it had too many hits to count.
On their Google+ page, YouTube announced, "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. 'Gangnam Style' has been viewed so many times we have to upgrade!" In other words, "Gangnam Style" reached more views than the code allowed, and the views stalled out for some time.
The issue has now been resolved, and the video is racking up the views as we speak! It has reached 2,152,445,439 and counting. Want to add another number to the YouTube count? Watch the video one more time:
