31 May 2014 Finally Hits 2 Billion Views in 685 Days

t one time the views were running at about 10 million views a day.

Justin Bieber was the the first to 800 million though! I thought for a long while that Psy would beat him to that record!

140 days is 12,096,000 seconds so Gangnam Style has been getting 66 VIEWS a SECOND since July the 20th

Gangnam Style is now being threatened by the first new YouTube Meme called "Harlem Shake"

Nostradamus Meme

Wags invented a new Nostradamus Quatrain that read, “From the calm morning, the end will come when of the dancing horse the number of circles will be 9“. The quote seemed to fit perfectly with Psy – Korea is called the ‘The Land of the Morning Calm’, Psy’s dance is the ‘horse’ dance, and the circle of 9 could be interpreted as the video quickly approaches 900 million views.

This will fortunately be invalidated when Psy reaches one billion views, so may be Psy is not the end of the world after all!

How Long Did it Take Gangnam Style to get to Number 1 - OPPA GANGNAM STYLE

Gangnam Style is creating a senstion not just for its number of views but how fast it has got these views. The number one of all time on Youtube is Justin Bieber Feat Ludacris with his hit Baby which currently has a staggering 780 million views but it has taken 2 years to reach this total. Gangnam Style has already overtaken Carly Mae Jepsen's "Call Me Maybe" which was a huge hit.

Understanding the Psy Gangnam Style Video - Analysing Gangnam Style

Most pop videos are huge ego trips for the star but not Gangnam Style.

  1. Beginning : Dream Sequence

    Psy dreams he is really cool and is on a beach being fanned by a beautiful girl

  2. Back to Reality

    He is in a playground sand pit and a precocious talented 5 year old kid is dancing.

  3. We meet the Horses

    The Gangnam style dance is themed on riding a horse.

  4. Dream Sequence Again: Dancing with two girls (twins?)

    He is dancing in an artificial snowstorm like in many a pop video but gets the pieces in his mouth

  5. Sauna Scene

    This is the first 'What-The-Heck' Scene which is done for comic effect. This is the opposite of what appears in a normal music video.

  6. Tennis Court and Coach Scenes

    Two fast scenes , what is going on? I like the girl in the black dress whose face you never see and the woman on the bus shaking her hair.

  7. Waste Land Explosion Scene

    I think the guy who jumps is later the guy in the lift.

  8. First Horse Dance in Stables

    This must be crazy when the song reaches this hypnotic beat with Psy and a squad of hot chicks dancing the full "Gangnam Style Dance". This is compelling.

  9. The backwards dance

    To a backdrop of skyscrapers Psy dances towards 3 dancers who dance backwards. Another amusing set.

  10. Fast Sequences with Hot Chicks

    We meet Hyuna with those never ending legs for the first time.

  11. Dance off with Mr Rich Boy in a yellow suit
  12. The What-The-Heck lift Scene

    Come on Psy you were being so cool. This is to throw you off before the next sexy lady scene

  13. Subway Train Scene with Super Hot Chick Hyuna

    Back to the dream sequence, Psy and Hyuna dance towards each other. I've watched this so often.

  14. Second Horse Dance

    Psy Hyuna and a gaggle of girls.

  15. Psy & Hyuna in a Dream Palace

    Hyuna gestures just like a spoiled super rich Gangnam District girl, another favorite bit.

  16. Third What-The-Heck Scene

    Psy is on the toilet , switch back to uncool.

  17. Third Horse Dance

    Now there is whole squad lead by Psy and Hyuna whose legs keep getting longer.

  18. Ends with a Recap

Gangnam Style No 1 on YouTube - 1.075 billion 29Dec12

Justin Bieber has 803 million views but is sure to be beaten by Gangnam Style

PSY (ft. HYUNA) - 75 million views

Hyuna is the incredibly hot singer/dancer who features in Psy's Gangnam Style Videos. Here she sings with the accent of the Young Rich Kids of Gangnam.

What is Gangnam Style

What does Gangnam Style mean

Gangnam is district of Seoul Korea which in recent times has become one of the richest in Korea. It is famed for the conspicuous wealth of its inhabitants. Psy's Gangnam Style video gently mocks the young affluent people from Gangnam. Hyuna dances and sings in their style.

Gangnam Style Video Goofs

  • In the first scene Psy's glass of coke turns into a glass of water. Easy to spot!

Gangnam Style Youtube Views WAS Stuck at 532 then 538 Millions

Why aren't the view going up?

For several days now the view counter, Likes and Dislikes have been Stuck.

Don't know why. Somebody says that the actual views are already over 550 Million but I don't know how they know!

I've been doing some research the stuck count is due to a YouTube maintenance freeze the real count is 560 million views which it will jump to at the end of the maintenance period.

Add 10 million views a day to do your own calculation.

26 Oct 2012 I can't find Gangnam Style anywhere in YouTube's own charts , not in most liked most viewed most discussed it's nowhere it's gone is it being suppressed by YouTube do they think there has been click fraud, its view count is still stuck at 432 millions what's going on??

Well it is still no 1 here but stuck of course at 432 millions.

27 Oct 12 YouTube is listing Gangnam Style at 560 Million Views again but when you actually click on the Video the count is still 532 Millions but OK things are moving again!

27Oct12 Oh no they aren't they are now stuck at 538 Million Views and stuck at 550 millions in list view.

It is very strange. The Eton Parody of Gangnam Style was also stuck as well..

Everything seems to be normal now, if you return to Gangnam Style after 10 minutes or whatever the view count will have gone up.

I heard about Gangnam Style when I started to notice that Sports Stars such as Chris Gayle and Americam Football Stars were celebrating their victories by dancing in The Gangnam Style which of course meant nothing at all to me! But how did you here about it?

When did you first hear about Gangnam Style?

      @tophatpro: Laury, I just wish I was of the age to go dancing in night clubs, I guess it must be great fun!

      Hey these videos are great fun. I even tried to to do the dance and it's harder than it looks especially that hip thing when he moves round the skinny guy in the bright yellowy green suit. Plus I think the Eton guys go a long way to show how silly people look trying to do these moves. They look cool in the video. Lol I'm just thinking of a whole bunch of brits trying to dance to this at a club. I'd pay money to see that.
