YouTube was all like “just playin'” when everyone reported that Psy’s “Gangnam Style” broke their video player.
Tag: Psy (1-10 of 22)
The five-minute long clip, which has already been viewed over 6 million times on YouTube, opens with the South Korean superstar waking up and running to the bathroom to vomit. Thankfully, Snoop is there to provide him with some much needed support.
From there, the dynamic duo brush their teeth and head out again for another intense night of partying; as Psy sings, “Party’s over, it ain’t over/Try to make a bad memory over and over.”

Either everybody and their mother has viewed Psy’s video for “Gangnam Style” at this point, or some of you are still watching the South Korean pop star do the horse dance five times a day.
The video for the irrepressible dance song has now surpassed 2 billion views, crossing the mark shortly before midnight on Friday. The only other video with a billion-plus views on the streaming site is Justin Bieber’s “Baby.” But at 1.04 billion clicks, even “Baby” doesn’t come close to topping the unlikely viral star’s YouTube popularity.
Psy also holds another YouTube record: He scored the most views in a day with 38 million for his “Gangnam Style” followup, “Gentleman.”

Oh Psy, you scamp — running the table two years in a row.
South Korea’s pony-danciest pop import had another bang-up year in video pageviews, following last year’s no. 1 “Gangam Style” with “Gentleman” in 2013. But Miley Cyrus, bless her, came close to wrecking him — and still beat him in total views.
Also on the list? The usual suspects: Katy, Rihanna, “Blurred Line” boobs, and more.

Congratulations, PSY: You can officially consider yourself a two-hit wonder.
It took nearly two months for the South Korean rapper’s breakthrough single, “Gangnam Style,” to garner 100 million views on YouTube. His follow-up, “Gentleman,” achieved the same feat in just four days — and a mere week after its YouTube debut, the second video has risen to the top of the video sharing site’s most-viewed chart. In second place? “Gangnam Style,” naturally.
A major South Korean broadcaster says it has banned PSY’s new music video because the rapper is shown abusing public property.
The “Gentleman” video opens with PSY kicking a cone that says “no parking.”
State-funded KBS said Thursday the scene doesn’t meet its standards as a public broadcaster. Two spokesmen say KBS has banned other videos for similar reasons in the past. READ FULL STORY
Around this time last year, PSY was strictly a Korean concern. No more: the international sensation now has another viral hit on his hands with the “Gentleman” video, which has amassed more than 100 million views on only its fourth day on YouTube.
The fast success of “Gentleman,” which was released on Saturday, far outstrips the initial performance of “Gangnam Style,” which hit YouTube on July 15 of last year and didn’t pass the 100-million mark until Sept. 4. And while it’s been panned by many critics, “Gentleman” seems to be fairly well-liked: the video’s YouTube page has more than a million thumbs-ups from viewers, while the number of thumbs-downs had yet to top 200,000 at the time of this post.
The new clip, Reuters reports, racked up more than 20 million hits in the 24 hours following its release — unprecedented for a music video. (Bieber’s “Boyfriend,” for comparison, held the previous record by earning 8 million views on the day of its debut.)
Of course, “Gentleman” still has a long way to go before it can overtake “Gangnam Style,” which famously became the first YouTube video to surpass a billion views last December. In fact, that number has since risen above the 1.5 billion mark, giving it a secure lead as YouTube’s most-viewed video of all time. Yet “Gentleman” still has a chance: A Wall Street Journal analysis predicts that the new video has a fair shot at reaching the one-billion milestone even faster than “Gangnam Style” did.
But those two songs aren’t PSY’s only online hits. On YouTube’s chart of its most-viewed videos, PSY’s collaboration with fellow K-pop star HyunA ranks at No. 19 with more than 330 million views. The man, it seems, is on a roll.
So since everybody else is doing it, why don’t you give in and be the 100,000,001st person to view PSY’s “Gentleman” video, conveniently embedded below? Come on, you know you want to:
K-pop satirist PSY became one of the great internet mega-memes of 2012 with “Gangnam Style,” his cuckoo ode to trashy decadence and horse-trot dancing. But somewhere around the time that the Glee kids started performing “Gangnam Style,” a question began to linger in the background. Could PSY ever replicate his success? Or was he destined for one-gimmick-wonder obscurity, right next to those guys who did the Macarena and those other dudes who let the dogs out? Well, his long-awaited-probably-by-someone single, “Gentleman” popped up on the Internet today. There’s no video yet, and since PSY has already promised the video will include some kind of dance move, “Gentleman” is half-finished at best. Still, give it a listen: READ FULL STORY
