'Gangnam Style' Now Most-Watched YouTube Video Ever

"Gangnam Style," the smash hit by South Korean rapper Psy that came out of nowhere this summer to become a pop culture sensation, has now become the most-watched YouTube video of all time.

The video, which as of today has more than 824 million views, passed the previous record-holder, Justin Bieber's "Baby," on Saturday (November 24th) to nab the record. Even more amazing, it's taken more than than two-and-a-half years for "Baby" to rack up its more than 804 million views since being posted in February 2010; "Gangnam Style" took the title in just over four months, since going up on YouTube on July 15th. 

In case you somehow managed to avoid the ubiquitous video -- or one of its many parodies -- here it is.
