YouTube most viewed videos 2011 list has been announced & it may surprise you that someone we had never heard of last year tops the list.
So here is the run down of the most viewed videos of 2011, although we think it is a bit premature of YouTube seeing as though we haven’t reached the end of the year yet but there you go.
Don’t forget that you can see the DT News channel on youtube where we post the occasional press conference and other titbits.
1) Yes, Rebecca Blacks ‘Friday’ video surpassed 100 million views and got there in a surprising short amount of time as its notoriety was propelled by ‘haters’ trashing the song and performance. I think Rebecca Black has had the last laugh though.
2) Next up is a video of a talking dog from Canada (well kinda) with almost 80 million views.
3) With almost 62 million views here are The Lonely Island crew with a tribute to Jack Sparrow featuring the legend that is Michael Bolton.
4) At no. 4 are the talking twin babies, my personal favourite. You’ll see what I mean and they will be hard to resist. Meet the talk show hosts of the future.
5) Nyam Cat is up next with 55 million views. Quite why is baffling to me but there you go, make up your own mind…if you still have it after listening to this.
6) Karmin are at no. 6 with a cover of ‘Look At Me Now‘ by Chris Brown ft. Lil Wayne and Busta Rhymes. Strangely addictive after a bit of Christmas sherry.
7) Here are The Lonely Guys again with a dittie called ‘The Creep‘ feat. Nicki Minaj & John Waters. You will have togo to YouTube to watch this one.
8) 10 year old Maria Aragon is up next with a cover of ‘Born This Way‘ by Lady Gaga. Lady Gaga herself prompted this video to go stratospheric when she tweeted “Can’t stop crying watching this. This is why I make music. She is the future.”
9) The no. 9 spot is taken by a viral ad from Volkswagon entitled ‘the force‘ for obvious reasons. Designed for the Superbowl it actually got picked up prior to the event by bloggers and went viral very quickly around the world.
10) Last on the list with almost 40 million views is this short video showing a cat hugging a kitten…. yes almost 40 million views… I know.
