Proving that the time you spent learning that ridiculous dance wasn’t a total waste, Psy’s “Gangnam Style” became the first YouTube video with 2 billion views at around midnight on Friday, according to Variety. The South Korean sensation trotted to the top of a different list almost two years ago when it beat out Justin Bieber’s “Baby” for 1 billion YouTube plays. Plus, Psy’s sophomore effort, “Gentleman,” earned the most YouTube views in one day (38 million) back in April 2013. It must be the bow tie.
