PSY's video featuring his horse-riding dance was posted on YouTube in July, while "Baby" was uploaded in February 2010.
PSY's video has become a global sensation, with many people around the world mimicking his "Gangnam Style" dance. In their October meeting, U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, a South Korean, joked that he had to relinquish his title as "the most famous Korean." He tried a few of PSY's dance moves.
