Psy's Gangnam style video was galloping towards the one-billion-view mark on YouTube on Friday, a fresh milestone in the enduring global craze for the South Korean rapper and his horse-riding dance. The video has had over 995.8 million hits.

The timing of the one-billion views breakthrough looks set to dovetail with a viral social network hoax that had the 16th century French seer Nostradamus apparently referencing Psy as a harbinger of the December 21 apocalypse.
