Gangnam Style” Hits 1 Billion Views on YouTube.

There was the Macarena, Chubby Checker’s The Twist, and John Travolta’s moves in Saturday Night Fever. All were dances which proliferated society, and became parody, and were mocked.

But there is one dance that eclipses all others— PSY’s “Gangnam Style” video has reached a milestone of 1 billion views on YouTube.

Yes, the ridiculous, horsy dance has been viewed ONE BILLION times.

It was only last September when the Gangnam Style’s insanity seemed like it had achieved mass popularity— when it reached 350 million views in 60 days. Now, as it reached a billion views, it has become the first video to be viewed by this many crazed fans.

And now comes word that PSY née Park Jae-sang (박재상, 朴載相) has bought a $1.25 million condo an exclusive, 29-story luxury high-rise building "near Beverly Hills." Looks like he’s putting down roots in Hollywood—a sign of more “Gangnam Style” to come.
