This is fascinating! Gangnam style has crossed the (signed) limit of 32bit integer in number of views.

What's amazing though is the reasoning behind not going ahead with the obvious decision to use unsigned data type. Here's Google's reasoning from there style guide: http://google-styleguide.googlecode.com/svn/trunk/cppguide.html#Integer_Types

"..Basically, C's type-promotion scheme causes unsigned types to behave differently than one might expect.
So, document that a variable is non-negative using assertions. Don't use an unsigned type."
We never thought a video would be watched in numbers greater than a 32-bit integer (=2,147,483,647 views), but that was before we met PSY. "Gangnam Style" has been viewed so many times we have to upgrade!

Hover over the counter in PSY's video to see a little math magic and stay tuned for bigger and bigger numbers on YouTube.
