Last week I got an embargoed list of YouTube’s most-viewed videos of 2010 for a feature piece I’m working on. It won’t run until early January, but I’m happy to say I can post the lists now.
Globally, the most-watched YouTube videos were:
1. “Bed Intruder Song!” Note: When I looked at this two days ago, it had 46.5 million views. As I post this, it has 48 million. Yeesh.
5. Old Spice: The Man Your Man Could Smell Like
6. Yosemitebear Mountain Giant Double Rainbow 1-8-10
The most-viewed YouTube videos in Canada were:
Of note: In February, the most-watched videos in Canada were Olympics-related.

RIP.
