It was the South Korean pop song that took the world by storm in 2012 and was so catchy that you’re probably still humming it.

Now YouTube has admitted that Psy’s smash hit ‘Gangnam Style’ has been viewed so many times since it was uploaded in July 2012 that it must upgrade the way figures are shown on its website.

Because the video has been watched so many times, there is no space for commas to break up the number of views.

We never thought a video would be watched in numbers greater than a 32-bit integer (=2,147,483,647 views), but that was before we met PSY. "Gangnam Style" has been viewed so many times we have to upgrade!’ Google said in a blog post.




The number is more than YouTube is coded to display, based on a 32-integer system, which determines how large a stored number can be.

Because the number is stored as 0s and 1s there is a character limit based on the amount of memory taken to store it. So in the case of the Psy video, the number of views surpassed this limit, meaning Google had to upgrade and allocate more memory

It has fixed the problem by allowing 64-but integers and adding an animation.
