YouTube literally can’t count all the views Psy’s Gangnam Style has, it actually broke the Internet!

Nicole Hughes Contributor

By Nicole Hughes in News on Thursday 4 December 2014

Since Psy’s Gangnam Style music video went viral in 2012, two years later it’s still going strong. It was the first video to pass 1 billion views, and in May it passed the 2 billion mark. However, now instead of breaking YouTube records, Psy just broke YouTube itself. YouTube wrote in a short post: ‘We never thought a video would be watched in numbers greater than a 32-bit integer (=2,147,483,647 views), but that was before we met Psy. Gangnam Style has been viewed so many times we have to upgrade!’

Sad YouTube comments that belie sad stories

Low Lai Chow Contributor

By Low Lai Chow in New Trends on Tuesday 30 October 2012

Commenting on YouTube videos has a rep for being a somewhat cutthroat sport, with users competing to see who can come up with the most ridiculous comment that draws the most thumbs up. But then Canadian YouTuber Mark Slutsky came to the realisation that ‘among the usual hate speech and Obama conspiracy theories, you can find these amazing nuggets of humanity—heartbreaking moments from people’s lives recalled by an old favourite song, stories of love and loss, perfectly crystallized moments of nostalgia and saudade”. This is why he’s started this blog to collect these sad comments before they drown with the rest of the drivel. Some are touching, while some are, er, pretty touchy.
