Proving that "Gangnam Style" was far from a one-hit-wonder, South Korean sensation PSY has secured another GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS title with his follow-up single, "Gentleman", which is the Most viewed video online in 24 hours.

The new music video received 38,409,306 views on YouTube within it's first 24 hours on April 14th 2013, and at time time of writing 11 days later, has been seen more than 222,867,915 times.

PSY's previous music video, "Gangnam Style", earned him multiple GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS titles, including Most viewed video online, Most "liked" video online, and First video to receive one billion views. The video has now been viewed more than 1,500,000,000 times.

The success of "Gentleman" is more immediate than that of it's predecessor, though - reaching 100 million views in barely four days, compared to the almost two months it took "Gangnam Style" to cross the same threshold:
