Psy's Gangnam Style video has been watched so many times that YouTube's counter could not cope and the company had to upgrade its system.

  According to YouTube, "Gangnam Style" has now been viewed so many times -- more than 2.15 BILLION -- that it busted YouTube's video views counter. The catchy Korean pop video catapulted the artist Psy and his signature dance moves to fame in 2012 and two years later, Gangnam Style is still the video most watched on YouTube.  

YouTube said "Gangnam Style" has been watched so many times they were forced to upgrade their system to a 64-bit integer. That means the next video to break YouTube will have to be viewed more than 9,223,372,036,854,775,808 times.
