Congratulations, you are a stat! Oop oop!

The part-crazy, fully-ridiculous ‘Gangam Style’ music video from singer PSY has crossed 810 million views on YouTube, making it the highest viewed video on the website. It surpassed Justin Bieber’s ‘Baby’, which has over 804 million views. To bring in a little perspective, to the numbers and to the song’s popularity, Bieber’s ‘Baby’ was uploaded two years ago in 2010, whereas ‘Gangam Style’ was only uploaded in July of this year.

The YouTube Trend blogs says that ‘Gangam Style’ generates about 7 to 10 million views a day, while ‘Baby’ generates as much as 500,000 views, which is pretty decent for a two year old video. Bieber may be loosing out on popularity against PSY a bit (which is not a bad thing apparently), he still has an upperhand on channel views on YouTube. PSY’s official YouTube Channel has exceed 1 billion views, but Bieber is far ahead with 3 billion.
