Psy and his peeps to earn $7.9 million for YouTube video alone

His mind-blowing success is thanks to YouTube and their ad payment system, which is brining in about thirteen times more than Psy has earned from online music sales in South Korea.

That's about a cool million for every 100 million views, so I think I've earned the guy at least a couple dimes.

"Gangnam Style" has been viewed 880 million times so far, and that is expected to grow despite the recent controversy over Psy's angry actions toward the US military in 2002 and 2004 following the uproar over two middle school girls killed by a US armored vehicle driven by sleep-deprived soldiers with inoperable communications equipment and, later, the beheading of a South Korean national in Iraq.
