    As some news sites reports,Psy finally hit 1 billion views making history.
    What I find funny is that "Catchy Content" + Blackhat marketing got it to this numbers

    Yea true! Quality content+blackhat marketing wins everytime. If the video was sucky and they still tried to add fake views it would never help. Same thing applies in what we do. Some of us just focus on blackhat marketing and ignore the quality/catchy part.

    Youtube is on the Spam kick but for some reason Psy is untouched.
    Ass holes are playing from the Google playbook of protection and elimination of start ups.

    Fake views. But, one has to praise the out-of-box thinking of Psy for coming up with such a stupid thing. These days one of the most idiotic things trend and become a rage among people. How can we forget 21st December?

    Cheers :)

    Not only did he hit 1 billion views, but some how he managed to get it on the 21st of december 2012. There was also some stupid video of a guy saying it was predicted that the end of the world would be when the video hit 1 billion views. STILL HERE
