Whenever something goes viral people always like to joke about it "breaking the Internet". This time it actually sort of happened. Remember "Gangnam Style"? Of course you do. The remarkably popular South Korean hit recently got so many views, it literally broke YouTube's counter. A rep explained – "We never thought a video would be watched in numbers greater than a 32-bit integer (=2,147,483,647 views), but that was before we met PSY. Gangnam Style has been viewed so many times we have to upgrade!" We can totally imagine it. They're like, "No video can ever have that many views!" But we did it, guys. Re-live the horse-dancing, butt-screaming goodness below.
