We all love video. So I thought it would be fitting to create a post on the 10 best viral YouTube videos of all time.
In doing research for this post, I saw many other top viral video lists varied based a number of variables and criteria. Basically, the list depends on how you slice and dice it. In other words, these types of posts are very subjective. So what really makes up a viral YouTube video for this list?
Here’s my criteria:
- The video needed to reach a large age range
- Be a part of pop culture
- You can watch it on YouTube
- Ranked by number of YouTube views
To help create this post, I referenced the YouTube Chart of all-time most viewed videos.
Here’s my list:
10. Lazy Sunday – Saturday Night Live
Views: 5 million +++ (taken down by NBC from YouTube so not sure final count)
9. Evian Babies
Views: 14 million +
8. Old Spice – The Man Your Man Could Smell Like
Views: 30 million +
7. Will it Blend? iPad version
Views: 10 million + (note: many different versions of “Will It Blend” so I ranked this higher)
6. Numa Numa
Views: 41 million +
5. Miss Teen USA 2007 – South Carolina answers a question
Views: 49 million +
Views: 60 million +
3. D&*K in the Box – Saturday Night Live
Views: 24 million + (owned by NBC so numbers are off – most likely tons more than listed on YouTube)
Views: 85 million +
Views: 168 million +
What video(s) would you add to this list?
