Gangnam Style Hits 1 Billion Youtube Views, The World Does Not End by adewasco2k(m): 6:15pm On Dec 21, 2012
Today is December 21, 2012. It’s the conclusion of b’ak’tun, the last day of the Mesoamerican Long Count calendar. According to Olmec and later Mayan traditions, today marks the last day of Fourth World Age, and thus associated with the apocalypse. But we are still here. As of this post’s writing, the world has not ended.

In other news, Gangnam Style just became the first YouTube video to have more than 1,000,000,000 views.
At this point Gangnam Style is utterly ingrained in Internet culture. It’s spawned countless memes and parodies. There are now Gangnam Style merchandise, apps and gear. You don’t hit 1 billion views without becoming a thing.

PSY’s lack of stance on copyrights has led greatly to the video’s success but it doesn’t bring in the cash. That comes from PSY’s commercial deals, YouTube ads, and iTunes says. The AP reported in early December that PSY is said to make $8.1 million this year alone. Not a bad haul for a video that’s only 6 months old.

The video made its YouTube debut on July 15 and surpassed Bieber’s “Baby” video in November– which had a nice run at the top of YouTube’s charts since its debut in February 2010. At least Bieber’s corporate parents won’t be too unhappy about this development: since September, PSY and Bieber work for the same music label.

The Olmecs and Mayans weren’t the only ones to forecast the end of the current age of life. Others, like Nostradamus, were less specific but predicted the world would end once certain conditions were met. Looks like he was wrong, too.

Our artistes run to SA to shoot videos with semi-Unclad females, and generate less than 100,000 views. See how this guy achieved stardom with a simple, carefully-thought out video. Would he have achieved this much if every Janet, Jane and Joan were wiggling their jugs and posteriors in the video?

This proves you dont have to cater to the west to blowwww up!

Be yourself and one stay, your star may shine!

The PSY guy has even cursed out the U.S.A before...but because of his talent, people were ready to forgive.

To start with I didn't know this guy was real, always saw him dancing in 1 music show advert. Wow, nice one. I just hope the hits one way or the other are reflecting in his pocket.

There's nothing special in the video. It's not worth all these razzmatazz. I've seen some Azonto dance tracks that are much better than this crap on Youtube.

abeg, this had nothing to do with video, but everything to do with the dance step, he could have shot it in the amazon forest and it would make the same impact.

Africans can't achieve this cos don't nobody wanna lift em higher than they should be. Koreans/chinese are generally viewed as funny, hence they have a higher appeal. The red-necks in the US and the KGB in Russia would rather advance an Asian than an African.

The world just isn't psyched up bout y'all, so stop going 'if they had shot it...' Blah blah blah.

D'banj's Oliver Twist despite the whole hype no even reach dem Rihanna song, so this has nothing to do with the location, but everything with the World's mentality.


@topic, congrats to him, hope he isn't just a one-hit wonder

I really dug the beats and the wackiness of the whole thing. I don't understand you people that don't see anything special in it.

I don't like the video but all the same it is indeed a nice feat. He's full of creativity and has just broken record on youtube beating Bieber's baby.
