Psy's music video for his "Gangnam Style" is the first YouTube video ever to hit a billion
Christmas came early for Psy. Then again, he has probably been living Christmas every day since "Gangnam Style" went viral last July.
The music video for the hit K-pop single reached a record-breaking 1 billion YouTube views on Thursday.
The landmark achievement isn't exactly a surprise. "Gangnam Style" has been well on its way to the 10-digit record since beating Justin Bieber's "Baby" at the end of November to become the most-viewed YouTube video of all time.
And the video's impressive climb looks to be continuing. It has already racked up nearly 400,000 extra views since passing the billion mark.
If you're still one of six billion people on the planet who haven't seen it yet, you can finally catch it here:
