Gangnam Style Closing In On A Billion YouTube Hits

We’ve all giggled, groaned and Psy-ed (see what I did there?) our way through at least one screening of viral sensation Gangnam Style, but the video’s meteoric rise isn’t over yet. Analysts are predicting that the video will smash through a billion hits before the year is out.

Let’s read that again: One. Billion. Hits. The prediction comes from the boffins over at ChannelMeter. The research shows that the video has already outstripped Justin Bieber, and dethroned Jenny from the Block.

What’s more absurd: that people are researching Gangnam Style, or the fact that we keep watching? [The Atlantic via Gizmodo UK]
