'Gangnam Style' breaks Guinness World Record

Friday 9 Nov 2012 7:17 a.m.

South Korean pop sensation Psy's global hit ‘Gangnam Style’ has smashed a world record to become the most popular video in YouTube history.

The singer was presented with a certificate by Guinness World Records bosses in London on Thursday for the achievement.

Since its release in July, the much-parodied online sensation has held off competition from singers Justin Bieber and Adele to receive 4,911,081 'likes' on the video-sharing website.

Receiving the award, Psy says, "I'm honoured. This is the first certificate I've ever had... I didn't get one at school."

Guinness World Records Editor-in-Chief Craig Glenday says, "I think Psy looked touched to receive his certificate, he even asked if he could keep it! We're pleased to present his official certificate to such a global phenomenon.

“‘Gangnam Style’ is an infectious, joyous song that has brought a smile to the faces of a tenth of the world's population, and the result is that it's the most liked video of any kind in the history of YouTube!"
