So what other videos were the most popular of the year? YouTube rounds out the top 10 thusly:
- Harlem Shake
- How Animals Eat Their Food
- Miley Cyrus’s Wrecking Ball (Chatroulette Version)
- Baby & Me / The New Evian Film
- Volvo Truck — The Epic Split featuring Jean Claude Van Damme
- The Lonely Island’s YOLO featuring Adam Levine and Kendrick Lamar
- Telekinetic Coffee Shop Surprise
- The NFL: A Bad Lip Reading
- Mozart versus Skillrex: Epic Rap Battles of History, Season 2
There’s certainly no doubt that music videos have become exceptionally popular on YouTube and so the social network company decided to create a separate list for this category. Miley Cyrus not only appears near the top, but has two of her videos featured: Wrecking Ball and We Can’t Stop.
