Exactly one year ago today, the music video for Psy’s mega-hit “Gangnam Style” was uploaded onto YouTube.
In that one year, “Gangnam Style” has been viewed over 1.7 billion times – making it the most watched video on YouTube ever. For some perspective on the magnitude of “Gangnam Style,” the second most watched YouTube video is Justin Bieber’s “Baby” with 872 million views.
