Gangnam Style 1 Billion Views - Coverage on

GangnamStyle1After months of going viral, news interviews, TV appearances, radio plays and downloads, concerts and more, Psy’s Gangnam Style music video on YouTube has now hit 1,000,000,000 (yes, that’s 1 Billion) views. It’s hard to imagine that it’s been played and viewed that many times, but it has and who knows where it will go from here. You have to give a lot of credit to Psy for milking this video for all its worth. It’s fun, has catchy music and it has an international flavor. This also  marks the first Youtube video ever to hit the 1 Billion mark, surpassing Justin Bieber’s Baby which now has over 813 million views. Justin’s music video, Baby, was released 2 years ago and Psy’s was released in July of 2012. Let’s not also forget another hot star that has seen a tremendous about of views too, Carly Rae Jepsen, with her popular Call Me Maybe video. Carly’s vid is now over 364 million in just 9 months! This is definitely the age of YouTube and when the day comes when TV officially merges with the Internet we might be seeing dozens of videos hitting that billion mark as well.

Where do you think online videos will go from here? Will we see them on the side of small town buildings like we do in Times Square? Will they follow us where we go like in the Tom Cruise movie, Minority Report? It could happen.  Where do you think we’ll go from here?
