Is “One Pound Fish” The 2013 Version Of “Gangnam Style”?

"Gangnam Style" has reached over 1 billion views on YouTube. "One Pound Fish", which is likened to "Style" has just under 12 million views in less than a month.

Muhammad Shahid Nazir, who sings "One Pound Fish", is a 31 year old Pakistani fish seller at Queens Market In London.

"Have a, have a look, one pound fish. Very, very good, one pound fish," which in U.S. Dollars is $1.60 for those wondering.
