YouTube: What The World Watched and Searched for on YouTube in 2009

I just discovered this interesting post: YouTube Blog: What You Watched and Searched for on YouTube in 2009

2009 has been the biggest yet for online video, and thanks to our better Internet connections in Kenya, we are now also able to feel part of this. For the first time YouTube is sharing its official Most Watched lists. For these lists, YouTube looked at view counts of YouTube's most popular videos this year. There is no specific list for Kenya yet (something I hope YouTube will take on in 2010), but here is the global list:

Most Watched YouTube videos (Global):
1. Susan Boyle - Britain's Got Talent (120+ million views)
2. David After Dentist (37+ million views)
3. JK Wedding Entrance Dance (33+ million views)
4. New Moon Movie Trailer (31+ million views)
5. Evian Roller Babies (27+ million views)

Well, I am not a big fan of Susan Boyle (no. 1), but I love water and babies, so the Evian Roller Babies (no. 5) is my favorite one on this list.

And you, did you watch any of these top five videos in 2009? If not, where have you been?

Hmm...I just had to watch Susan Boyle to see what the hoopla was about :) Other than that, I have no idea what those other vids are. Perhaps I need to spend more time online?
