Psy’s “Gangnam Style” Music Video Scores Over 2.1 Billion Views, Prompts YouTube to Update its Backend

We rarely do non-product news, but this one is special because it is one piece of entertainment news that correlates to tech. And how so, you ask? Simple. Psy’s “Gangnam Style” scores over 2.1 billion views on Youtube and in the process, it kind of breaks YouTube view counter. Oops. The story goes that the video website’s number of views was in 32-bit integer, which counts up to an astronomical 2,147,483,647 (of views) and that was a-ok before the 2012 Korean language mega hit started to sweep the globe, topping the various medias including iTunes chart, YouTube and some say, Ellen DeGeneres Show. From than until now, its official music video has been watched (at the time of this writing) 2,158,159,770, which means it would have broke the code, so to speak, if Google’s YouTube does not do anything about it (basically, it will just stop displaying the count).

Billed as the first ever action POV feature film, Hardcore is a sci-fi adventure movie starring South Africa producer, actor and director Sharito Copley (most notable for his role in Neil Blomkamp’s District 9) and created by BitingElbows‘s Ilya Naishuller who’ve made quite a sensation with his POV short film/music video Bad Motherf*#ker (clearly, NSFW.
