No Gangnam Style Repeats in 2013

Psy’s Gangnam Style may be a one hit wonder, but its popularity isn’t tipped to be exceeded any time soon, with online bookmaker pricing $1.14 that no Youtube video will receive more hits in 2013.

After it became the most watched clip ever on Youtube this week, ‘yes’ has been priced as the outsider at $5.00.

And while it is the most viewed clip, it seems it will take a bit longer to reach the 1 billion viewers mark, priced at $1.45 to do so by 9am on the 30th December or later.

“If Psy has overtaken Justin Beiber on Youtube, honestly who else can stop him?” said’s Shaun Anderson.
