'Gangnam Style' cruises to new milestone: 2 billion views

Psy's "Gangnam Style," first released in July 2012, has reached another massive milestone, becoming the first video to hit 2 billion views on YouTube.
The viral hit was the fastest to 1 billion and surpassed Justin Beiber's "Baby" for the most viewed video of all-time last year.

As a commemoration, Google has added like dancing emojis of Psy around the play counter.

"2 billion views ... they are very honorable and very burdensome numbers," Psy said in response to the news. "With appreciation, I will come back soon with more joyful contents!!" Psy's second hit, "Gentleman," has a measly 690 million views.

Gangnam Stlye remains popular, and actually had 90,000 views in the time it took me to publish this blurb.
