A Share-worthy Showdown: “Call Me Maybe” vs. “Gangnam Style”

Is Carly Rae still the Viral Video Queen?

Ever since the catchy tune infiltrated the YouTube scene back in March, Carly Rae Jepsen’s “Call Me Maybe” has been a seemingly insurmountable viral heavyweight. The music video alone boasts more than 270 million views, not to mention the countless millions who watched parodies done by everyone from Sesame Street’s Cookie Monster to the USA Olympic Swim Team. It seemed as though Jepsen’s bouncy hit was going to be the viral colossus of Summer 2012.

That is, until Psy burst onto the scene in mid-July…riding what seemed to be an invisible rodeo horse. And so, a viral showdown of epic proportions began.

Or is Psy the new King of YouTube?

With his eccentric dance moves and infectious song, the K-pop star’s popularity has been exploding throughout the United States, causing a viral supernova in the Social Media universe. The video is both confusing and addictive with overwhelming dance numbers that will keep you glued to the computer screen from beginning to end. We can’t explain it, we’ve just witnessed it.

Now, both videos are hurtling towards 300 million views. Our question for you is: which do you think will get there first?
