Here Are YouTube's Top 2011 Videos

It's Friday, Friday, gotta get down on Friday

Here Are YouTube's Top 2011 Videos
 
 

It's pretty easy to guess what the #1 video on YouTube was in 2011, thanks to its coming out early in the year and it being a very dead time for news.

Yep, it's Rebecca Black's Friday music video. The video had all the good qualities needed for total virality - the song was catchy enough that you had to watch it, bad enough that you had to forward it to your friends, yet still relatable since it was an everyday teenage girl just trying to get her 15 minutes of fame.

Some of the other videos on the list were not nearly as famous outside the realm of Youtube - the owner of the canine in "Ultimate Dog Tease" certainly never appeared on Nightline - but they did fully embody the expected trends of Youtube.

So you have your token funny animal video, the "Talking Twin Babies" video was the quintessential "awwww" video of the year, and Maria Aragon's singing of Born This Way captured the spot for amazing young talent.

Then there was "Nyan Cat," which was the "now that's just weird" video that rose to make it to the top 10. In other words, we can pretty much predict the kinds of videos that will comprise a most-viewed list these days. It's just a matter of who manages to master each of those categories.

Here's the complete top 10:

1 - "Friday" - Rebecca Black
2 - Ultimate Dog Tease
3 - Jack Sparrow (feat. Michael Bolton)
4 - Talking Twin Babies
5 - Nyan Cat
6 - Look At Me Now - Chris Brown ft. Lil Wayne, Busta Rhymes
7 - The Creep (feat. Nicki Minaj & John Waters)
8 - Maria Aragon - "Born This Way"
9 - "The Force"
10 - Cat Mom Hugs Baby Kitten

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
