    thats crazy.

    its is weird, because as much as we can see that its funny and have a laugh,

    it is my 2 year old daughters favourite song, and the first time that she can recognise a pop song from another one i think. she has never seen the film clip.

    so it has some underlying intrinsic genius that appeals to our senses even if we dont know it

    That's freaking hilarious it already hits the 1 billion!

    After the Macarena in the mid '90's (at least it was here in Europe), I couldn't name a new one hit wonder (so far) being this big!

    'Billion Style' as Psy reaches internet milestone

    South Korean pop star PSY has galloped his way into the record books with 'Gangnam Style' reaching one billion views on YouTube.

    Psy hailed his ascent to "Billion Style" Saturday, after the South Korean rapper's viral hit became the first video to break a billion views on YouTube, marking a historic milestone on the internet.

    The view counter for "Gangnam Style", which was only posted on the video-sharing site on July 15, clicked over into 10 figures at around 1550 GMT Friday (1.30am Saturday AEDST), as the global craze for the singer and his horse-riding dance refuses to die down.

    As of 0630 GMT Saturday (4.30pm Saturday AEDST) the counter showed 1,010,321,921 views

    "Finally becoming #BillionStyle!!!" Psy wrote on Twitter.

    Among the first to congratulate him was American rapper MC Hammer, of 1990s "U Can't Touch This" fame, who posted: "Congratulations !!! You made history !!! 1 Billion Views !!!!"

    Psy thanked new manager Scooter Braun for helping promote the video. "I made 100 million and you made the other 900!!! Brother with Another Mother!!!" he wrote.

    Braun's agency also manages Canadian heartthrob Justin Bieber, whose hit Baby Psy overtook less than a month ago to take the all-time most-viewed title. Bieber was still in second place on Saturday with more than 813 million views.

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

    Psy has swept all before him in the past five months, hoovering up awards and scoring guest appearances with everyone from Madonna to the head of the United Nations.

    The video and its singer have been given walk-on roles at major world events like the US presidential election.

    And the timing of the one-billion views breakthrough dovetailed with a viral social network hoax that had the 16th century French seer Nostradamus apparently referencing Psy as a harbinger of the December 21 apocalypse.

    Billboard.com said Gangnam was estimated to have generated $US2,000,000 from YouTube alone at a reported rate of two dollars for every 1,000 views, with digital downloads and on-demand services bringing earnings from the song to $US6.01 million in just five months.

    The video also earned Psy a contract with Bieber's management agency and a number of assessments have been posted claiming the song has generated over $US8.1 million in advertising deals.

    Rolling Stone put Gangnam Style at number 25 on its top 50 list of best songs for 2012 and labelled Psy as "Seoul Brother Number One".

    The singer, who is nominated for seven gongs at the World Music Awards, plans to wrap up the year with an appearance on "New Year's Rockin' Eve" on ABC in New York, his agency said.

    Although the demise of the "Gangnam" phenomenon has been predicted many times, another parody, another celebrity or even another world leader has always popped up in time to administer some publicity CPR.

    The song - which refers to a trendy Seoul district - has spawned a mini tribute video industry, with copy-cats including British soldiers in Afghanistan and Philipppe prisoners.

    It has also been co-opted by an impressive roster of big names, including Chinese dissident artist Ai Weiwei, and the public has joined in, with tens of thousands turning out for giant flashmob performances in cities like Paris and Rome.

    The quirky star, whose real name is Park Jae-Sang, has won adulation in his homeland for the global hit and was this month awarded one of South Korea's highest cultural honours, the Okgwan Order of Cultural Merit.

    Psy hit a speedbump in the United States last month when anti-American views he voiced a decade ago caught up with him - but he apologised and went on to perform at a "Christmas in Washington" gala attended by Obama and his family.

    South Korea sees popular culture as a potent export force, providing international exposure for a country that still feels overlooked in comparison to neighbours China and Japan.

    The government has spent substantial time and money supporting the so-called Hallyu (Korean Wave) of TV shows and pop music that has swept across Asia in the past decade
