A magnifying glass shows the number of times that viewers have watched South Korean rapper Psy’s video Gangnam style on YouTube on December 21, 2012. Psy’s “Gangnam Style” became the first video to hit a billion views on YouTube on Friday, marking a fresh milestone in the global craze for the South Korean rapper and his horse-riding dance. The view counter attached to “Gangnam Style,” which was only posted on the video-sharing site July 15, clicked over into 10 figures at around 1550 GMT, confirming its status as the most viewed video in the site’s history.
