Happy Holidays, PSY: "Gangnam Style" Becomes Most-Viewed YouTube Video Ever

There might be some tension in Scooter Braun's offices this morning, as PSY's "Gangnam Style" officially overtook the music video for Justin Bieber's "Baby" to become the most-viewed YouTube clip of all time.

In the span of only four months, PSY has been able to rack up 805 million views for his candy-colored K-Pop hit, surpassing the 803 million that Bieber's Ludacris collaboration has garnered since its debut in 2010. (If you were curious, the third-most-viewed video on YouTube is Jennifer Lopez ft. Pitbull's "On the Floor," with 624 million views. We challenge anyone to find a reason why.)

Interestingly enough, though both music videos stand far above all others on the YouTube charts, neither song made it to no. 1 on the Hot 100. The Biebs is still looking for his first chart-topper, while "Gangnam Style" was marooned behind "One More Night" for more than two months. Does this make Carly Rae Jepsen the alpha-dog at the Schoolboy reunions?
