"Gangnam Style"

South Korean pop star Psy's music video about the wealthy lifestyle of a district in Seoul generated countless parodies and became a media sensation when it was first posted to YouTube in July. It beat Justin Bieber's "Baby" as the most-viewed video on YouTube with more than 1 billion views and even sparked a controversy when El Monte lifeguards got fired (and later rehired) for performing the song.
