As one of the main reasons of the recent rise of South Korean pop music, PSY sure has more than just reason to celebrate. His world-conquering video "Gangnam Style" broke a Guinness World Record. The records-keeping authority announced that the clip broke the record for “Most Likes on YouTube” with 2,141,758 – despite close to 100,000 dislikes. That breaks the previous record set by LMFAO’s "Party Rock Anthem" (1,574,963), Justin’s Bieber’s "Baby" (1,327,147) and Adele’s "Rolling in the Deep" (1,245,641). In addition, the video has generated up to 227 million views, which it just outside of YouTube’s list of the 30 most-viewed videos ever. Guinness World Records Community Manager, Dan Barrett, said in statement:
“Having been the ‘Have you seen this?!’ video of the last two months across the web, it’s great to be able to award a record for this tremendously popular video. In years past it was unthinkable that something would be viewed a hundred million times, and now “Gangnam Style” has achieved more than twice this figure in just three months on YouTube. PSY – your certificate is waiting here at our office, come pick it up any time!”
"Oppa, Gangnam style!"
