ATLANTA -

YouTube clip sensation Gangnam Style by South Korean rapper Psy is an international hit. His video, posted just last July has now has 386 million views. And after a recent discovery by parents with fussy children, the video is expected to get a few million more.

Nothing has lit the Internet on fire like Psy's Gangnam Style. And the original version has spun off several spoofs and knockoffs. You are no one if you have not produced a parody of this video. The Navy, the Air Force, the Army, and even the folks at FOX 5 have all done parodies.

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.

    LL Cool J stays true to hip hop roots

    EXCLUSIVE -- LL Cool J grew and evolved from a hip hop artist out of Hollis, Queens, to a Hollywood TV and movie star. But he always stayed true to hip hop culture. We'd see him backstage at concerts just hanging out with us, so when I heard he was back in New York for the summer I had to find out why. I tracked him down to a Midtown Manhattan recording studio for this exclusive interview.
