Billboard

PSY's "Gangnam Style" is now the most-watched YouTube video of all time. The 4:13 clip from the South Korean rapper has earned approximately 803,761,000 views since it was posted on July 15.

Early on Saturday, that total passed the longtime YouTube champ -- the music video for Justin Bieber's "Baby," which has garnered 803,732,000 views since its February 2010 release.

Bieber's "Baby" clip has 1.4 million Likes and 3.1 million Dislikes. Bieber's "Baby" clip enjoyed an impressive run at the top of the YouTube heap, becoming the most-watched video on the site in July 2010. At that time, the clip had collected more than 246 million views to leapfrog over Lady Gaga's "Bad Romance."

"#GangnamStyle just became the most watched video @YouTube!! #History," PSY posted to Twitter on Saturday morning in celebration of the achievement.

What the heck is Gangnam Style? I guess I am one of the few who don't get why it is so popular.

I think back to when he was writing it.  Little did he know what he was creating.  I checked it out only because I kept seeing captions of so and so Gangnam Style, football player Gangnum Style, robot Gangnum Style and so on. That's the only reason I watched it was to see the dance and ended up really liking it.  Got into 4Minute because of it too.  The girl on the subway train.  Yeah !!!

This song is fun; stupid but fun. It makes me laugh and at least it isn't perverted like "The Whistle Song" or sad like 'Pumped Up Kicks."

It is a refreshing fun video.  MTV would still be relevant if more were like this.

All that I would want to know is - why?!? This doesn't bode well for music or video when a song like this becomes the most watched thing on YouTube.......
