In a press release published on the label's website, YG Entertainment execs claimed this confirms the song's overwhelming popularity with fans.

"The record has been set two years from March 6, 2012, when the music video was uploaded on YouTube," the YG statement read.

"It proves the fact that the song has been loved by fans consistently since its release."

"Along with "Fantastic Baby," 16 music videos of Big Bang have reached 10 million views and five among them have recorded 30 million views on YouTube," the YG statement added.

"Fantastic Baby" was reportedly one of the most viewed YouTube videos of 2012, earning the group international press from media outlets ranging from the Guardian to the Vancouver Sun.

The Sun's Francois Marchard described "Fantastic Baby" as "easily one of the most colorfully twisted pop videos we've seen in a while, combining RPG style art, riot gear, steampunk elements and street pop swagger."

At a press conference in Kallang, Singapore, back in 2012, six months after the release of "Fantastic Baby," G-Dragon thanked their fans for making the band a worldwide sensation.

"We're grateful and honored," he said, according to the Jakarta Post. "The love from fans really motivates us and we're really appreciative of the love we get from everyone around the world."

"We've continued to learn more about ourselves and our relationships with one another," G-Dragon added. "We're all growing in terms of music and as human beings."
