South Korean pop star PSY has hit the record books with his Gangnam Style music video.

The rapper, with his distinctive horse-riding dance, has picked up a Guinness World Record after viewers clicked 'like' on YouTube more than 2.14 million times, making it the most liked video in the website's history.

The closest competitors for most liked video on YouTube include LMFAO's Party Rock Anthem with 1.57 million likes, and Justin Bieber's Baby with 1.32 million likes.

PSY, whose real name is Park Jae-Sang, revealed in a press conference this week that his life has become so unreal he wonders if he's being tricked into believing it, like Jim Carrey in The Truman Show.

He confessed that he cried in disbelief when his song entered the Billboard 100 earlier this month. The 34-year-old now says he'll go topless in joy on a stage if Gangnam Style tops the chart.
