“Gangnam Style” Breaks A Guinness World Record

Gangnam Style” by Psy, a South Korean rapper, has broken a Guinness World Record.  His song broke the record for “Most Likes On YouTube” with 2,141,758.  Psy has beaten “Party Rock Anthem” by LMFAO (1,574,963), Baby by Justin Bieber (1,327,147) and Rolling in the Deep by Adele.

“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!” said Guinness World Records Community Manager Dan Barrett.
