The video of Psy's hit single "Gangnam Style" became the most watched video of all time on YouTube with 809 million hits on late Saturday, far ahead of Canadian teen star Justin Bieber's “Baby”, having a record with 803.65 million views after its release in 2010.
The video mocks the consumerism of South Korean upper classes and features sunglass-wearing Psy dancing in a company of long-legged Korean models.
Psy dancing style has become a global dance craze as he dances in a jerky style that resembles that he is trotting on a horse.
"Gangnam Style" has generated numerous parodies, and many celebrities, including Madonna, imitated Psy’s dancing moves.
"Gangnam Style" won the Best Video Award at the 2012 MTV European Music Awards in Frankfurt Nov 11.
