Pour a tiny bit of malt liquour, or soju, for PSY. The Korean sensation's internet smash "Gangnam Style" has ended a five year run as the most viewed video of all time on YouTube.com — a run that was so bonkers, that it surpassed the total number of plays that YouTube could track, forcing the service to rewrite its view-counting code.
The new champion is Wiz Khalifa and Charlie Puth's "See You Again," directed by Marc Klasfeld, and commissioned for the Furious 7 movie to pay tribute to the late Paul Walker.
Currently, the count is relatively close: "See You Again" has 2.896 billion views compared to "Gangnam Style" and its 2.894 billion views.
All these numbers are way above my head — maybe we can entice Nate Silver to dig into the data? — but either way: Congratulations world, you've spent a cumulative 44,000 years watching these two videos!
