Funny cats, RickRolling, laughing babies, dramatic gerbils and “don’t tase me bro” are some of the all time classic You Tube videos. The past is past, but YouTube continues to make stars out of ordinary people, both in good and bad ways. So what are the top You Tube videos so far for 2010?
This year’s videos vary in content, from the beauty of the “Double Rainbow” video to the downright evil “McNugget Rampage“. These two videos could not be more opposite, yet they have attracted the attention of video voyeurs everywhere looking for a little relief from their day.
Goofy commercials have always been a staple of YouTube. Nike’s “Write the Future” and a brand changing video for Old Spice Cologne entitled “The Man Your Man Could Smell Like” have the potential to take top honors for 2010.
The advent of TV shows like American Idol have spawned videos of people who don’t “fit the mold” of a star, yet possess amazing talent. The sixth-grader Greyson Chance showed us his version of Lady Gaga’s “Paparazzi“, generating over 33 million views. Close your eyes and you would swear you were listening to Lady Gaga!
Apple inadvertently had a top video this year as well. This is one of the few videos of YouTube fame that did not feature comedy, cuteness or talent. Apparently an Apple developer lost an iPhone 5 prototype after having a few beers at the local Beer-garden. When the phone reached a reporter from the popular tech website Gizmodo and he showed the world, the video took off to the tune of 1.6 million views.
There is still more time for you to be a YouTube star of 2010, so get your videos uploaded today!
