K-Pop crossover star PSY has taken the Internet by storm this summer with his high-energy and ultra viral "Gangnam Style" music video. Known for its insane rap, swanky production value, and groundbreaking horse race dance -- recently attempted by Britney Spears and Ellen Degeneres -- PSY's web sensation has inevitably inspired a slew of clever parodies, covers, reactions, and mashups.
According to Visible Measures, the original video, uploaded July 2012, currently has 145 million views, but its over 260 spin-off videos have accrued a combined 350 million views as of this date. That makes "Gangnam Style" a faster rising hit than Carly Rae Jepsen's oft-spoofed "Call Me Maybe" and Justin Bieber's YouTube smash, "Baby"!
Along with the stats behind that staggering information, Visible Measures also serves up the top 10 most watched "Gangnam Style" spoofs.
