Even the Vatican has... Well, maybe not the Vatican, but it wouldn't be surprising given the miracle the song seems to hold over cranky babies.

Videos have started popping up on YouTube of fussy toddlers calming down once the Gangnam Style video. And the child starts back up once the song is turned off.

The original video only received a few hits until Psy tweeted about it. Now it has gotten over a half-million views in a viral explosion.

And it's not just one child either. Multiple videos have now appeared drawing millions of views.
