(CNN) — If you have yet to watch Psy’s “Gangnam Style” video you may be the only one.

According to Billboard, it just became the first video to garner more than 1 billion views on the Internet (cue the wailing from Justin Bieber fans).

The video recently overtook Bieber’s “Baby” video as the most watched on YouTube, breaking the teen heartthrob’s former record of 803 million views.

Billboard calculates that “Gangnam Style” is watched 76.4 times per second. They cite Next Big Sound in theorizing that, at its currrent rate, Bieber’s video won’t cross 1 billion views until 2014.

    Hey There Fox4kc,
    On a similar note,, Psy just released his new music video, Gentleman
    But I’m wondering if Germans are allowed to access to this MV because I’ve heard that in Germany there’s a company (I don’t know the name) that bans almost all YouTube videos due to copyrights.

    And I’d like to know then how do Germans watch videos on all if they can’t go watch them on YouTube? Do they have their own video sites?
    Kindest Regards
