“If YouTube were a country, we’d be the third largest in the world after China and India,” the team said. It further added,”PSY and Madonna would have to repeat their Madison Square Garden performance in front of a packed house 200,000 more times. That’s a lot of Gangnam Style!”

The company further stated that all of the Ad Age Top 100 brands are now running campaigns on YouTube.

Founded in 2005, YouTube was bought by Google in 2006 for $1.65 billion.
