'Gangnam Style' breaks YouTube
By Brandon Griggs, CNN
updated 1:50 PM EST, Wed December 3, 2014

(CNN) -- The Internet is a vast and seemingly limitless space, but it's no match for PSY.

"Gangnam Style," the South Korean pop star's enduring video phenomenon from 2012, has surpassed 2,147,483,647 views on YouTube, maxing out the site's original view counter.

"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," wrote Google, which owns YouTube, in a blog post this week. " 'Gangnam Style' has been viewed so many times we have to upgrade!"

For anyone who doesn't have an advanced degree in computing, that basically means YouTube's view counter was based on a 32-bit integer, a unit of data in computer programming languages, and the number 2,147,483,647 is its maximum positive value.

When programmers built YouTube nine years ago, they probably never imagined that a video on the young platform -- back when several million views was considered a smash hit -- might be watched more than 2.1 billion times.
As of late Wednesday morning, "Gangnam Style" had breached the barrier, showing more than 2,152,512,000 views.
So how is this possible?

YouTube's software engineers saw the problem coming and recently updated to a 64-bit view counter across the site, Google spokesman Matt McLernon said. The view counter can now go up to 9 quintillion views (9,223,372,036,854,775,808, to be exact), which should hold PSY for a while.

"Nothing actually broke," McLernon said. "There was never anything that actually went wrong. It's just people having fun with the language."

Still, it's an impressive feat for PSY's trademark horse-riding dance video, which is almost 2½ years old. Uploaded in July 2012, "Gangnam Style" was the first clip to hit a billion views and is the most-watched video of all time. It was even the No. 5 most-played video on YouTube this past summer, McLernon said.

"People still play this video an absurd number of times," he said.

To commemorate the occasion, YouTube has added a new wrinkle: If you hover your cursor over the "Gangnam Style" view counter, the numbers spin backwards and forwards.

Father (아버지) Lyrics
How did you live like that?
Father, now I finally realize.

(Verse 1)
He's only been looking forward in his life.
Now that the kids have already grown they won't even listen to him.
All his life he sacrificed his best days for his wife and the kids.
Trying to make just a bit more money, looking at the kids' photo.
Swallowing tears, risking his life, he gets back up even when he's exhausted.
What if I pass out?
"Kids, don't worry, your father's a Superman"

Can't do anything when pressed down from above.
Can't avoid when struck from below.
Scary, this world, want to run away.
Shit, I still endure.
I still live on for the oblivious, happy kids snuggling in my arms everyday.
Tired but will still go to work. "Honey, kids, your daddy's going to work."

(Chorus)
Father, now I finally realize,
How did you live like that?
Don't be lonely anymore.
From now on we'll go together.

(Verse 2)
There's only one thing I want from the kids who are already going to schools.
Be an honest, healthy, nice kid. An upright person.
I'll be a better father than others.
Outside of schools, gotta send them to academies, get them private tutors to compete with other fathers, gotta do everything for them.
Which means I need to make more money. "You guys, be good to your father"

Kids make friends, talk about stuffs, see things, listen to people, compare with other fathers who do more for the kids.
Compare me to other fathers who buy them nicer things.
I go, for the kids who only get more spoiled and my wife who only ask for more.
"Honey, kids, your daddy's going to work."

(Chorus)
Father, now I finally realize,
How did you live like that?
Don't be lonely anymore.
From now on we'll go together.

(Bridge)
"Honey, it has already been so long.
Older one is working, younger one is in college.
Now I want to be with my family
but it's hard to say so because I'm the father.
Have tears in my eyes for the time has passed by so fast
and the kids look busy, my gosh, I'll just go for a walk.
Would you please come with me?"

(Chorus)
Father, now I finally realize,
How did you live like that?
Don't be lonely anymore.
From now on we'll go together.
