When Gangnam Style broke YouTube

Before the infectious South Korean arrived the most hits YouTube has seen from Justin Bieber and his song ‘Baby’. Then came the catchy lyrics and dance from Psy who with his surreal video ‘broke’ YouTube.

The maximum view limit was 2,147,483,647 but Gangnam style surpassed that making YouTube increase their maximum views to 9,223,372,036,854,775,808 – don’t think even Gangnam Style will be able to reach that.

And if you are wondering how to say 9,223,372,036,854,775,808 here it is… Nine quintillion, two hundred and twenty-three quadrillion, three hundred and seventy-two trillion, thirty-six billion, eight hundred and fifty-four million, seven hundred and seventy-five thousand, eight hundred and eight.

Gangnam Style is currently at just over 2.5 billion views. Justin Bieber is still crying over his Baby and the 1 billion less views.
