38 million times on April 14, surpassing the single-day record of 30 million set by the "KONY 2012" short film. It also holds the day-of-debut record with 18.5 million views.
Psy's Gangnam Style is YouTube's most-viewed video at 1.5 billion.
Gentleman reached 100 million views in four days and was approaching 204 million views Monday afternoon. It's not clear if those are records, but it took Gangnam Style more than 50 days to reach 100 million views.
