The Top 10 Most Watched YouTube Videos of the Year

By - Source: YouTube | B 31 comments

What did we watch on YouTube this year?

YouTube has released its annual 'most watched' list of videos and though the top few are obvious, some of the clips on the list might surprise you.

Filling the number one spot (and our heads) is the most annoying pop song of the last few years, Rebecca Black's 'Friday.' Uploaded to YouTube in early March, the video was pulled in June and only re-uploaded in September. If you need something to make the incessant holiday music tolerable, you can check out Friday below.

Number two on the list is a little more interesting. It actually managed to top the UK's list of most watched YouTube videos, which was revealed earlier this week, and is titled 'Ultimate Dog Tease.' The video features a dog with a human voice-over talking about the joys of steak, meat drawers and other things that would drive a dog wild. If you haven't seen it, here it is:

Third place is The Lonely Island's 'Jack Sparrow (Ft. Michael Bolton)' video. Uploaded on May 7, the video has so far managed to clock up 61,297,966 views.

Fourth place goes to the 18th-month old McEntee twins and their intense discussion in their kitchen, while fifth place was awarded to the famously annoying Nyan cat.

    Just shows the intelligence level of the majority of people. Please God, bring Armageddon as soon as possible. When you make a mistake, you delete it and just start over.

    Do not panic guys. Youtube has made up a lot of dumb rules to make it look like Rebecca Black's video is really the most viewed.

    Interesting videos amongst them. But let's face it, if SOPA passes face book will be history as prob 90% of the posts are technically violating someone's ©

    The Lonely Island has two videos up there. I like them, but I'm surprised they're that well watched.

    I think the person who created this article just put up some random YouTube videos.

    Pitbull - Give Me Everything ft. Ne-Yo, Afrojack, Nayer

    hmmm....people are saying that mainstream music videos by mainstream, well-known artists should be put on the list? I somehow disagree...
