"Gangnam Style" (Korean: 강남스타일, IPA: [kaŋnam sɯtʰail]) is a single by the South Korean pop artist PSY. The song was released on July 15, 2012, as the lead single of his sixth studio album PSY 6 (Six Rules), Part 1. "Gangnam Style" debuted at number one on the Gaon Chart, the national record chart of South Korea.[3] As of November 4, 2012, the music video has been viewed over 650 million times on YouTube,[4] and is the site's second most watched video[5][6] and most watched K-pop video.[7]
The phrase "Gangnam Style" is a Korean neologism that refers to a lifestyle associated with the Gangnam district[8] of Seoul. The song and its accompanying music video went viral in August 2012 and have influenced popular culture since then. "Gangnam Style" is considered by some to be a worldwide phenomenon, while others have praised "Gangnam Style" for its catchy beat and PSY's amusing dance moves in the music video and during live performances. 
On September 17, the song was nominated for Best Video at the upcoming 2012 MTV Europe Music Awards to be held in Frankfurt, Germany.[9] On September 20, 2012, "Gangnam Style" was recognized by Guinness World Records as the most "liked" video in YouTube history.[10]
The music video has become a source of parodies and reaction videos by many different groups including The Oregon Duck, midshipmen from the United States Naval Academy, and the North Korean government.[11][12] PSY has brought the "Gangnam Style" dance to various locations such as The Today Show, Saturday Night Live, Dodger Stadium, The Ellen DeGeneres Show, and Samsung commercials.[13] By the end of October 2012, the song reached the number one position in 33 countries including Australia, Canada, France, Germany, and the United Kingdom. 
Although "Gangnam Style"s reception in Japan remained lukewarm, the song topped China's Baidu 500 download list and was labelled by state-controlled media as a "divine melody".[14][15][16][17]
As the song continued to gain popularity, a few prominent figures outside of the sports and entertainment industry appeared in various notable "Gangnam Style" parodies, such as the civil rights activist John Lewis, the Chinese dissident Ai Weiwei, the mayor of Jerusalem Nir Barkat, the American political philosopher Noam Chomsky, and Inri Cristo, a self-proclaimed reincarnation of Jesus Christ.[18] 
It was also referenced by Song Sang-Hyun, the President of the International Criminal Court, during his speech in front of the UN Security Council.[19][20][21] In addition, "Gangnam Style"s dance moves have been performed by business and political leaders including Google's executive chairman Eric Schmidt, the British Prime Minister David Cameron, and UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-Moon, who hailed "Gangnam Style" as a "force for world peace"
