Gangnam Style by South Korean singer Psy scored the maximum number of views, provided by the counter YouTube, so developers had to make changes to the program code, ria.ru reports.

Once the video has been viewed 2,147,483,647 times, the counter began to show the wrong number.

"We never thought that any video on our website will be watched so many times, but we just were not familiar with the work of Psy", - representatives of YouTube said.

Today Gangnam Style is the most popular video on YouTube and all over the internet. It was posted to the network in July 2012, and the first billion views received approximately in seven months. Still less than half of the year two-billionth threshold was overcome.
