    So does anyone have any proof that Psy used fake views to kick start his career?

    To be honest, I do not get "why" people even waste their time watching his videos. But, that's life LOL! Lame, boring, stupid seems to be what sells and is the trend of the next generation :(

    I do not believe anyone here has "tangible" proof if or if he didn't...

    Good question to ask though.

    The fact that he used LOTS of teens in his videos, was probably one of the biggest drivers, you could imagine all of them tweeting, facebook, and rubbing their fannies with hedgehogs saying "i'm in a music video" when it started

    I don't understand how fake views could be the reason for a viral success. Are you suggesting that people thought the song was okay, saw the view count and then decided that they loved the song? Fake views are helpful for YT and Google keyword rankings but are useless for producing viral content.

    His song went viral because it is catchy, not terrible, fun and has a dance that caught on with the crowds. Above all else, it was promoted well. He had the entire country of S Korea behind that song. Nothing to do with view count.

    Listen to this http://www.npr.org/player/v2/mediaPlayer.html?action=1&t=1&islist=false&id=162740623&m=162767856

    Would be surprised if it was those "There is no way he got 1bill views, he got them from authenticviews . com) and people started believing that. Also, whoever this authentic views guy is has to be making bank, I see him on every video as top comment :|

    yep he must have used fiverr.. however, using teens in videos and then tweeting and fbing about it, quite a clever mind i must say.

    I think he instantly got millions of views because his gangnam style which made the whole world gone crazy with his horse dance crap and to think this one would also do the same thing
