South Korean pop sensation PSY's global hit "Gangnam Style" has smashed a world record to become the most popular video in YouTube history.

The singer was presented with a certificate by Guinness World Records in London on Thursday for the achievement.

Since its release in July, the much-parodied online sensation has held off competition from singers Justin Bieber and Adele to receive 4,919,843 "likes" (as of Thursday morning) on the video-sharing website. Receiving the award, PSY says, "I'm honored. This is the first certificate I've ever had ... I didn't get one at school."

Guinness World Records editor-in-chief Craig Glenday says, "I think PSY looked touched to receive his certificate. He even asked if he could keep it! We're pleased to present his official certificate to such a global phenomenon. 'Gangnam Style' is an infectious, joyous song that has brought a smile to the faces of a 10th of the world's population, and the result is that it's the most 'liked' video of any kind in the history of YouTube!"

Wow, the most popular video in YouTube history.  That's quite an achievement, considering he's competing with videos by Rihanna, Lady Gaga, Justin Bieber, Adele, Usher, etc. too.

I just watched the video for the first time today.  Silly and funny.  That guy has a lot of stage presence and charisma.

And for some reason it's overplayed on American radio, yet how many people do you think actually know wtf he's saying?  It's Korean!  Everyone nowadays just wants a "good beat".  This one isn't even that good.  And the video itself, atrocious.
