No, Psy’s ‘Gangnam Style’ Did Not Break YouTube Video Counter

Tech-news sites this week reported at face value a tongue-in-cheek posting from YouTube that Korean pop star Psy’s “Gangnam Style” — the site’s most-watched video ever with more than 2 billion views — had somehow “broken” YouTube’s video-views counting system. […] Among the ensuing coverage, CNET reported that YouTube “stalled for a bit,” noting that mousing over the counter caused it to spin erratically and display random numbers. But according to YouTube, the post about “Gangnam Style” forcing it to upgrade the video-view counter was a total joke. “It’s an easter egg,” a rep said. “We updated the counter to 64-bit months ago.” – Todd Spangler,Variety
