PSY’s “Gangnam Style” Broke YouTube

Never thought (hoped, actually) that we’d be writing about PSY‘s “Gangnam Style” ever again. But he just continues to LITERALLY break the internet, and he doesn’t need a massive naked booty to do it.

The iconic single has reached new, never before seen limits:
gangnam style broke the internet
With this new landmark of 2 billion plays, YouTube simply couldn’t keep up.

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 had to upgrade to a 64-bit integer (9,223,372,036,854,775,808)!

Hover over the counter in PSY’s video to see a little math magic and stay tuned for bigger and bigger numbers on YouTube.

Dat shit cray. See what happens after the jump, and let’s all pray this is the last we hear from PSY.
