Ylvis - The FOX Among YouTube's Annual List of Top Trending Videos

Youtube launched today Youtube Rewind 2013, their annual lists of the top trending videos, music videos, channels and a tribute video of the best moments from 2013 featuring Jimmy Kimmel, Jimmy Fallon, Macklemore, Sesame Street characters and over 60 Youtube channel stars from around the world.

Check out the new Youtube Rewind 2013 video at


2013 marks the 5th consecutive year Youtube has made lists of the most popular videos on Youtube and six billion hours of video are viewed every month on YouTube.

For Youtube Rewind 2013, the top 10 trending videos had 850 million views and the top 20 channels had 18.7 billion views, totaling one billion hours watched (= 102,000 years).

As more than 80% of Youtube views come from outside the U.S., international content continues to get bigger. For example, Swede Felix Kjellberg and Chilean German Garmendia are the #1 and #2 most subscribed channels on Youtube while Norwegians Ylivs and Kenneth Aakonsen have the #1 and #2 top trending videos.

Other pop culture trends from the lists include:

· This is the first year that Youtube has had three videos from brands on the list - Evian Babies, Volvo Trucks, and Carrie the movie - demonstrating that more brands than ever are understanding what works on YouTube. Brands are breaking away from the 30 second commercial and creating videos that feel more like content on Youtube and less like ads.

· The FOX didn't just get 260+ million views on YouTube. It was also played on Dancing With The Stars, was one of the top searched Halloween costumes, and is being turned into a children's book.

· There were 1.7 million videos of or about the Harlem Shake uploaded to Youtube this year, ranging from a squad in the Norwegian Army to NASCAR's Jimmie Johnson after winning the Daytona 500. Harlem Shake videos were watched more than 2.5 billion times. It was the top rising search on Youtube in 2013.

· Miley's music videos helped add the word "twerking " to the Oxford Dictionary.

Lists are attached/below and playlists can be viewed on the Youtube Spotlight page at: http://www.youtube.com/user/YouTube
