Psy's new music video "Gentleman" is not only breaking YouTube records, hitting more than 145 million views in less than a week, it just got banned by his home country's biggest TV broadcaster.
South Korea's KBS, a state-funded broadcaster, said Thursday it was banning the video because it shows Psy kicking a traffic cone with a "no parking" sign on it. The TV network says it has a policy prohibiting the showing of videos that abuse public property.
The ban comes as "Gentleman," the follow-up to 2012's incredibly popular "Gangnam Style" that premiered last Saturday, gallops into YouTube record books.
In its first full day, the video was watched more than 50 million times, blazing past the previous 24-hour record of 8 million views held by Justin Bieber's "Boyfriend." Psy's video now has nearly 146 million views.
