    97 mil in 72 hours...sounds like a highly bs purchased number, like robot software "watches" it and it counts as a view

    Someone needs to explain to Psy what "One hit wonder" means.

    You can't blame him for trying to cash in a little more while he still can.

    I still don't understand the the whole gangnam style thing, I didn't think it was funny or fun, I just don't get it.

    Maybe not for his sake. He gets PAID by You Tube for the number of views. The song may bomb with sales, but he will make a few hundred grand with 100,000,000 views.


    Google: Psy’s ‘Gangnam Style’ Has Earned $8 Million On YouTube Alone

    Gangnam Style, the most-watched YouTube video ever, with more than one billion views, by K-pop sensation Psy has generated $8 million revenue on YouTube alone, said Google chief business officer Nikesh Arora in a rare disclosure on the company’s fourth quarter earnings call. A previous analysis by the Associated Press indicated that Psy had earned $7.9 million from Gangnam Style in worldwide revenue, including downloads on iTunes and streaming and sales on services available only in Korea.
    Considering that Gangnam style has, as of this writing, racked up 1.23 billion views on YouTube, that means the video is generating on average 0.65 cents every time someone plays the video. The creator of a YouTube video keeps about half of that money, which suggests Psy and his record company have earned about $4 million from YouTube.

    Who the hell is paying Google $0.65 to be allowed to show an ad next to a Psy video?

    My bad. That's a little more palatable.

    Howard's just jealous that Psy was more relevant than him the past couple of years.
