No less than the Guinness Book of World Records has declared that the music video for the song Gangnam Style is now the most liked video on YouTube. Gangnam Style is a song from Korean artist PSY, whose real name is Park Jae-Sang.
The video for Gangnam Style is quite funny and entertaining, which is probably the reason why it is a viral hit. The video’s secret, though, must be the dance moves. Just like the Macarena, the dance is simple and quite easy to copy. The video is not the most watched on YouTube as that title belongs to Justin Bieber’s video for the song Baby, which so far has 780 million views. Gangnam Style only has 232 million views as of this writing but that’s still impressive considering that PSY is not a huge international star like Justin Bieber.
However, Gangnam Style is indeed the most liked as it has now amassed 2.2 million likes. The next on the list of most liked videos on YouTube is LMFAO’s Party Rock Anthem which has so far gathered 1.5 million likes, followed by Justin’s Bieber’s video for the song Baby with 1.3 million likes, and Adele’s video for the song Rolling in the Deep with 1.2 million likes.
