South Korean rapper Psy became the king of YouTube on Saturday, Nov. 24, when his "Gangnam Style" video surpassed Justin Bieber's "Baby" as the most-watched clip in the history of the site. Bieber had been tops since July 2010, racking up more than 803,732,000 views, but Psy's music vid had been steadily creeping up on that record. Since being posted in July, the viral song-and-dance has earned 803,761,000 views — and counting.

"#GangnamStyle just became the most watched video on YouTube!!" the rapper tweeted on Saturday, along with the hashtag "#History" and a link to the now-famous clip.

Psy's song previously set YouTube's record for the Most Liked video ever posted to the site, with more than 5.3 million "Likes" and just 323,000 "Dislikes" to Bieber's 1.4 million "Likes" and 3.1 million "Dislikes." On the music charts, it peaked at No. 2, where it remained for seven weeks behind Maroon 5's "One More Night."

Its true success as a pop culture phenomenon can't be measure in numbers, though. Over the last five months, Psy has performed the K Pop dance alongside the likes of Britney Spears, Madonna, the Jersey Shore cast, U.N. Secretary General Ban Ki-moon, and — most recently — MC Hammer, who joined the superstar onstage during the American Music Awards.
