YouTube’s 10 Most Watched Videos of 2012

In order to rank on YouTube’s Most Watched Videos list for 2012, your video would’ve had to clock in at least 30,000,000 million views. That’s a whole lot of people watching. The following ten clips proved they could go viral better than all the rest. The top video scored a whopping 971,000,000+ views and was only released in July. To put that into perspective, that’s more than 10% of the world’s population. I’m pretty sure you know what the No. 1 is, but I’m certain you don’t know all the other nine clips.

I spend quite a bit of time in front of the computer and I’ve only seen half of the videos. Surprisingly, only one “Call Me Maybe” lip dub made it. Instead some chick playing a violin in cold weather, something about some KONY dude (I was vacationing in Australia that entire month), and some crazy guy jumping from space made the cut 😉 Check out the Top 10 list below and see if you were part of each sensation or out of the loop.

    I dont really understand this list. where are the music videos besides psy? and Britney’s “scream & shout” just came out and it has more than 32,000,000 views so Im sure other music videos have enough views to make the cut as well.
