'Gangnam Style' now most-viewed YouTube video of all timein: Latest News
Psy's "Gangnam Style" is now the most-viewed YouTube video ever, which means it's been watched more than 830 million times. That means that the single biggest pop culture event of 2012--the video you're most likely to talk about with your grandma at Christmas--was, as I predicted back in 2011, an LMFAO-soundalike dance-pop track performed entirely in Korean and wrapped around a novelty horse dance. The particulars of every cultural phenomenon are different; Psy's as good an example of that as we're likely to get.
