Ready For the PSY-an Apocalypse? "Gangnam" Passes a Billion Views

It was bound to happen: the world-uniting "Gangnam Style" reached the zeitgeist-y billion-view milestone on 12/21/12 of all days.

We know where one galloping horseman of the apocalypse is; whether the other three show up remains to be seen. In a fit of auspicious timing, the most-viewed YouTube video ever, and future bar mitzvah staple, "Gangnam Style" reached a billion views on the much ballyhooed date of December 21, 2012.

If the prophecy turns out to be true, though, at least we’re going out together, dancing goofily.
