    The pure frustration i feel that people are still milking this just makes me feel worse for Psy, knowing that he's never going to be able to achieve anything of the same level again.

    Why would he need too? Despite the fact it'll will bring in a ton of cash now, while it is popular, he still intends to release other singles. Anyway, this really is a moment in Internet History, the first 1 Billion views on YouTube.

    I'm pretty sure he is very happy.

    Yup. The video itself also has the animation next to the video view.

    Yes, I feel so bad for Psy since his video is the first video to ever hit 1 billion views and he might never release a better song again... I mean, god that must suck to make millions of dollars for a single song and to have people around the globe (who don't even speak the language the song is in) to listen to it... a lot.

    I also feel bad for Michael Jordan knowing that most people consider him the greatest basketball player of all time and he will never be able to achieve anything of the same level again.

    Find me a single artist that would rather be known as a one hit wonder than having a long successful career.

    Why not? It is hardly going to hurt your pride to listen to a song once...

    Plenty of musicians have one hit wonders. It's nothing new.

    I'm sorry, really I am...ok not really...this has to be done.






    Want a longer answer?

    Lets see, the internet is still an emergent product, masses more people gain access to it on a daily basis so activity across the entire thing will go up so getting excited about an arbitrary number is silly.

    Asian pop stars have been making just this same kind of rap/pop ripoff of American entertainment for yeeeeears. There are entire libraries of exactly the same crap as is in this video. It isn't like its even decently entertaining, if anything we should all be face-palming the fact that the first video to hit 1 billion views is basically a car wreck that no one seems to be able to stop watching.


    But really....

    Who

    The HELL

    CARES?!

    I don't really care for Psy, and am not THAT big into the song itself, but the video does make me smile. The elevator scene just cracks me up every time. Everyone has a friend or knows someone that fits into that description and it's easy to relate to, making it even more funny.

    As far as I've heard it went viral after it was played at some GSL finale.
    Considering that, it does surprise me that this is the first song to reach the 1 billion marker. Nonetheless I'd like to wish Psy a big congratulations with this marker. It is doubtful he'll ever make such a hit again though

    It's all the parodies and references to it that bothers me more than the view count.
