South Korean rapper Psy’s “Gangnam Style” last week became YouTube’s most viewed video of all time.

The catchy dance hit had been viewed more than 820 million times as of Sunday night, surpassing Justin Bieber’s “Baby,” which had 804 million views.

A posting on YouTube’s Trends blog says the “velocity of popularity for Psy’s outlandish video is unprecedented.”

“Gangnam Style” was posted on YouTube in July, while “Baby” was uploaded in February 2010. The Bieber clip remains popular, drawing 350,000 to 500,000 views a day.
