Obviously Psy’s Gangnam Style, which became the first video ever on YouTube to surpass 1 billion video views, is 2012’s undisputed viral video. For context, the second most viral, Carly Rae Jepsen’s Call Me Maybe, is up to only 364 million views for the year. But what about the rest?
This isn’t all-time views ever; just videos that were uploaded in 2012. Chances are you’ll recognize many of them on the list. I particularly enjoy the Bad Lip Reading of Twilight, and Felix Baumgartner’s record-breaking freefall. The list was put together by BuzzFeed based on sheer number of views, so this doesn’t necessarily mean the funniest or the best.
Personally, I would have liked to see David’s Pizza on the list, which is annoyingly catchy. Who doesn’t love pizza? Hit up the source link for the full list of 50 most viral videos of 2012.
