It coems to no surprised as "Gangnam Style" has become the most watched video on YouTube. As of today, Psy's "Gangnam Style" surpasses Bieber's "Baby" to become the most-watched video on YouTube. The video racked up more than 805 million views to pass Bieber in less than 5 months.

Marketing blog Wordstream compiled a bunch of "Gangnam" stats and found that in November, Psy's video was being watched over 4,000 times each minute, on average. Gangnam Style has also been certified by the Guinness folks as the most-liked video in YouTube history with over 2 million digital thumbs up.

Wordstream also projects that given Psy's sustained YouTube momentum, "Gangnam Style" will become the first YouTube video to reach a billion views, around December 11.
