The YouTube landscape is much broader than the ongoing tussle between the Swedish creator and Indian music record label. However, it has now been surpassed by the Bangtan boys with a massively huge margin. YouTube didn't immediately respond to a request for comment, but according to Variety, the video smashed the site's record for most views in the first 24 hours of release.

On Saturday night, YouTube confirmed the official record, which is now set at 78 million. Check out some of the hilarious and heartwarming reactions from fans all around the world. Colin Jost also dropped BTS' name to a similar reaction during Weekend Update, with laud screams also accompanying the band's performances. The video was released on Friday (April 12).

By 2015, they'd made their first appearance on the Billboard 200 chart and, a year later, their album Wings would peak at No. 26, the highest ranking ever for a K-pop album. Both videos already have well over 1 million views.

Later today they will also be the first ever K-pop band to perform on popular U.S. show Saturday Night Live. Let's give it up for you guys with the famous BTS fan chant "Kim Namjoon, Kim Seok-jin, Min Yoon-gi, Jeon Hoseok, Park Jimin, Kim Taehyung, Jeon Jung-kook!"
