'Gangnam Style' hits 1 billion views on YouTube The surprise blockbuster smash hit 'Gangnam Style' has hit 1 billion views on YouTube.
As of writing, the video now has 1.02 billion hits, making it far and away the most viewed video on the site, ever.

In late November, the video surpassed Justin Beiber's 'Baby,' which had long held the title.

"Psy's success is a great testament to the universal appeal of catchy music - and er, great equine dance moves," wrote Kevin Allocca, YouTube trends manager.
