Let’s untangle the success of the summer’s viral YouTube hits a bit, shall we?
But as YouTube Trends points out, it’s not easy to parse the comparative virality of the two. Carly Rae’s video had a head start, being posted in March. Korean rapper/singer Psy’s video was posted in mid-July. Within just two months, Gangnam Style has ratcheted up its daily view count, averaging more than six million views a day. And this survey doesn’t factor in the celebrity remakes and global popularity of CMM and GS, respectively.
This one’s still our favorite take. But we’re biased.
