Gangnam Style is older than human civilization

I’m a little late to the party. Liza and I just watched the Korean pop star Psy’s Gagnam Style video in full. We were viewer #1,723,506,130. I feel a little guilty, because we both watched at the same time so we robbed him of one view.

Then Liza wondered how long the human race has been collectively watching that video.

1,723,506,130 viewers x 4:13 (the length of the video) = 436,047,050,890 seconds

= 7,267,450,848 minutes

= 121,124,181 hours

= 5,046,841 days

= 13,817 years

Humanity has been watching Gangnam Style for longer than human civilization has existed.
