PSY’s “Gangnam Style” took over Korea within a week after its release, and then proceeded to win the hearts of Americans and the rest of the world. The viral video, and its artist, has been featured on many international shows and has even been given the title of Most Liked YouTube Video of All Time.
The catchy song and video has just set a new Guinness World Record for “Most Likes On YouTube” due to the amazing amount of likes: 2,141,758 to be exact. And the number is still growing!
The video, which first made its way to YouTube on the 15th of July, has become the viral video of 2012. This is mainly due to the fun dance and hilarious video, not to mention the fact that PSY is impossible to not love.
“Having been the ‘Have you seen this?!’ video of the last two months across the web, it’s great to be able to award a record for this tremendously popular video,” Dan Barrett, Guinness World Records Community Manager, stated. “In years past it was unthinkable that something would be viewed a hundred million times, and now “Gangnam Style” has achieved more than twice this figure in just three months on YouTube.”
LMFAO’s “Party Rock Anthem” (1,574,963 likes), Justin’s Bieber’s “Baby” (1,327,147 likes), and Adele’s “Rolling in The Deep” (1,245,641 likes) have all taken the back seat when it comes to Gangnam Style.
We’ll keep you posted when PSY gets even more mentions and awards…because he will!
