Gangnam Style becomes YouTube’s most-viewed video
Gangnam Style, the dance track by South Korean pop phenomenon Psy, has become YouTube’s most-watched video of all time.
The video pokes fun at the consumerism of Gangnam, an affluent suburb of the South Korean capital Seoul.
The video also features the 34-year-old singer reclining on a sun lounger in tight pink shorts, gazing longingly at a girl dancing on an underground train in tight shorts and gesticulating at a woman working out on a beach – in tight shorts.
Popular parodies include one performed by Eton College schoolboys and another in the Star Trek language Klingon.
It holds the Guinness World Record for the most “liked” song ever – currently with a little under 5.4m likes on YouTube.
Bieber’s manager Scooter Braun was the first person in the US to tweet a link to the Gangnam Style video.
