Psy of relief? 'Gangnam Style' star's 'Gentleman' scores 86 million YouTube hits in 72 hours
Tuesday 16 April 2013
The pressure was on for Psy’s follow-up single after “Gangnam Style” became the most-watched video on YouTube with 1.5 billion hits.
But his similarly slapstick single “Gentleman” has already broken the record for the most views in a single day after it was watched 20 million times in its first 24 hours - and the video is now hurtling towards 87 million views just three days after it was published.
The "Gentleman" video, which continues to further Psy’s reputation for catchy dance moves, sees the South Korean singer acting in anything but a gentlemanly manner.
He pulls off an unsuspecting woman’s bikini, removes a chair out from underneath another and farts on a girl studying in the library. He shoves a cup in his date’s face, and adjusts the speed setting on a treadmill to ensure a runner goes flying off the end.
