Psy's video for his latest song "Gentleman" has broken records on YouTube in its release week but one network in his native South Korea has deemed it unfit for broadcast. 

According to the Los Angeles Times, the state-funded network KBS has announced its ban of the wildly popular video.  In the comedic clip, Psy is shown kicking a "no parking" sign as he wreaks havoc over his hometown of Seoul.  KBS says showing footage of the abuse of public property is against its policy.  

Meanwhile on YouTube, the "Gentleman" video has racked up almost 150-million views.  It was watched more than 50-million times on its first full day, blowing way past the record for a 24-hour period previously held by Justin Bieber's "Boyfriend."
