You may have heard the song and not known what it is but PSY's Gangnam Style has taken over on YouTube with 827,012,185 views and climbing as of Nov. 24. The song is performed by South Korean rapper PSY. Gangnam Style, which was released in July of 2012, has beat out Justin Bieber's "Baby," which has garnered 803 million views since February.

Locals have been getting into the act imitating the signature "horse-riding dance" at weddings and flash mobs around the Tri-Valley.

In Pleasanton, during a wedding in September, wedding-goers broke out in the horse-riding dance as part of the celebration.

Livermore local Brent Salaria and a friend showed their Gangnam Style in a parking lot on Aug. 26.

According to Yelp, Roppongi Sushi in Livermore even has a menu item named after the song.

Elyrics.net translates the lyrics and says the song is about those attributes in a girl that all men are searching for, while the guy promotes himself as the one who "one-shots his coffee" while it is still hot. Click here for the full lyrics.

Fans can download the song on itunes.
