It has been a short 5 months since Psy unleashed “Gangnam Style” on the world. Just one short month ago it became the most viewed video in the history of Youtube and on Friday the 21st, it was officially announced to be the first video to ever break the one billion mark in total views. When MTV broke the news about Psy being the first person to break the one billion views mark, it was understandable that Psy had a hard time coming up with something to say about the incredible accomplishment. What makes Psy’s success all that much more interesting s that he never expected any of it.
“I can’t compare it to anything else!” he laughed. “In 2012, I experienced so many things; it’s been a tremendous year, but to accomplish this, it’s really something that stands out. Because it all began with YouTube, and to have [the video] reach 1 billion views … I don’t think even I can break that record!”
