PSY's 'Gangnam Style' is most popular YouTube video ever



Korean rapper PSY's ubiquitous video for Gangnam Style has a new title beyond Most Awesomest Music Video in the Universe: It is officially the most popular video in YouTube history. If for some reason you haven't seen it, please watch it above and then continue reading.

Guinness World Records on Thursday presented Psy with an official certification in London on Thursday, noting the official video's 4.9 million-plus "likes" officially put it ahead of Justin Bieber and Adele songs, Starpulse reports. That doesn't even mention the 673 million views the song has gotten. And he even did a little horsey dance all the way to the Guinness presentation.

"I'm honored. This is the first certificate I've ever had. ... I didn't get one at school," PSY said. Way to teach those kids to get an education. All they really need to do is learn how to teach kids at Oxford how to re-enact his video, which he also did while in England. Imagine having to devise a follow-up to a phenomenon like that.
