    1,004,480,502 views right now. With a little gangnam style gif next to the view count. In just over 5 months.

    God damn.

    I think the goal was to make Gangnam style reach a billion views by the end of the world.

    A billion views later, people are still pronouncing it "Gang-nam Style." Goddamn it, people, get it together!

    It was funny at first, but then everyone ruined it.

    Being a catboy became too mainstream, so I became a Lucario.

    I never really got the whole Gangnam thing. I mean what made it stand out from a million other quirky Asian pop songs/videos? What aren't I seeing?

    It's ok, I didn't know what the hell Gangnam style was until about a week ago.... Not really into current music at all. That being said at least it doesn't make my ears bleed.

    It has a good beat and was nice background music until the radio got a hold of it and played it on a more than once an hour... also can't find his album anywhere despite him being on tv so often for so long. makes me wonder why they didn't capitalize on that.

    Did you guys know that Nostradamus has a prophecy that can be linked to Gangnam Style?

    "From the calm morning, the end will come, when of the dancing horse, the number of circles will be nine."
    I read Korea is known as the land of the calm morning, and the "dancing horse" would obviously be a reference to the song. The nine circles would represent the nine zeros of the 1 billion views. Creepy, eh?

    Nostradamus never said that. It's an internet joke.

    I like his slogan: Dress Classy, Dance Chessy.

    But hey, through him I found another singer who has a catchy song to me. So it wasn't ALL bad:

    When it spawns cool parodies like this, I begin to approve.

    Gangnam Style is on the newest Kidz Bop.

    Gangnam Style is no longer relevant.

    I found a link to it, but I'm too terrified of what I might hear to click it. Do they at least pronounce (or mispronounce) Gangnam correctly?

    From what I heard before I hit the mute button, no.
