“Gangnam Style,” the 2012 K-Pop song from South Korean singer and rapper Psy, broke the view counter on youtube. Yes, broke it.
The music video has been watched so many times, that YouTube was unable to continue keeping track of the views.
Evidently, YouTube didn’t think that a video would ever get watched that many times, and boy were they wrong.
The view counter is built-in with a 32-bit integer– equaling 2,147,483,647 views. That’s right. “Gangnam Style” has been watched over 2 billion times.
YouTube announced on Monday (Dec. 1) that they were to upgrade to a 64-bit integer. That would make a video capable of being counted up to 9,223,372,036,854,775,808 views!
Now the video is at 2.153 billion views and counting!
Kim K. tried to break the internet, but it looks like Psy actually did.
