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.
Still haven't seen it. No desire either.
You now stand before the Countess.
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.

So this is how the world ends.
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.
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.
If you were to take a bite of C4, would you get explosive diarrhea?
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.
