"Gangnam Style" may not be the most viewed video to hit YouTube, but it is the most liked. According to the Guinness World Records, Korean pop star PSY's music video has seen more than 2.2 million likes on YouTube, putting it well ahead of its closest competitor — previous record holder LMFAO's "Party Rock Anthem" currently sits at just over 1.5 million likes. "Gangnam Style," meanwhile, has been viewed more than 232 million times to date — quite a ways off from the likes of Justin Bieber's "Baby," which has more than 780 million views, but impressive nonetheless. It just goes to show the power of the viral video, though of course, even with incredibly popular videos some of us may need help learning to appreciate them. If you've yet to learn the joys of "Gangnam Style," you can check out the video below.
