I loved the Gangnam Style music video as did almost everyone else. I'm not surprised at all that it became #1. I'm happy for them the entire thing was brilliant and they deserve all the success they got.
[citation][nom]icepick314[/nom]is that # of clicks or full views?didn't Youtube recently changed their count where it only goes up if you view from beginning to end instead of just clicking the video then you can exit?[/citation]
it works on some sort of formula. You have to watch x seconds or a percentage of the video to count as a view. If I posted a video HOT NUDE BUTTHOLE and it was a video I took of an alley cat sleeping, people probably wouldn't watch the whole 3 minute clip. If you click off the video in the first few seconds it doesn't count, but you do not have to watch the whole thing.
If you want to know more, there's a video on youtube about "why the views stop at 301" or something by one of the lead coders.
