South Korean pop star Psy introduced us to 'Gangnam Style' back in July 2012. His invisible horse dance (and whatever else he's doing in that video) instantly captured the attention of millions of people.

The video went viral on YouTube and - good, bad, or indifferent - the song was stuck in everyone's head for months. A lot of naysayers thought it was just a fad and that the song would fizzle out quickly.

In fact, back in September 2012, E! Online declared that 'Gangnam Style' was "officially over," and the video only had 220 million views at that point. Well, there are now about 1,782,522,204 reasons that declaration might have been a bit premature.

That's right, 'Gangnam Style' has just reached an unprecedented 2 billion views on YouTube. Yep, BILLION with a "b."

Justin Bieber's 'Baby' is the only vid that had ever even gone into billion territory on YouTube and Psy has doubled the video view record formerly held by the Biebs.

With the renewed focus on 'Gangnam Style,' we had to watch it again and for some weird reason, it's mesmerizing. It's annoying, sure, but it's one of those things you just love to hate. To save you the trouble of searching for it again (cause you know you were going to), we've included it below.

Fun Fact: If you DO go to YouTube to watch, click the little Psy guy dancing next to the video view number and you'll get a cool surprise.
