With almost 45 million views on YouTube, "Gangnam Style" is the second most popular music video on YouTube's 100 chart this week (right behind Carly Rae Jepsen's video for "Call Me Maybe") and is also number one on Billboard's K-Pop Hot 100 chart.

The song has even reached baseball fans who started dancing to the track during an L.A. Dodgers versus the San Francisco Giants game in Los Angeles on Monday and were delighted to see Psy sitting in the stands and eventually performing his signature moves for the crowd.

Word has it that the 34-year-old Korean rapper is currently in Los Angeles for a meeting with Justin Bieber's manager Scooter Braun about the possibility of working together and given their almost simultaneous tweets, it's totally possible that they attended the baseball game together.

Braun caught on early to the "Gangnam Style" madness in July and after seeing Psy's quirky video for his viral tune, he tweeted, "HOW DID I NOT SIGN THIS GUY!?!??! GANGNAM STYLE!!!! #THEGREATEST."

For those of us unfamiliar with the "Gangnam Style" vernacular, Billboard reports that "Gangnam is an affluent part of South Korea's capital, Seoul, likened to Manhattan or Beverly Hills." In addition, Psy's interpretation of the "style" of Gangnam "is a reference to fancy living and in the song is used to impress a love interest over a European influenced dance backing."
