YouTube Shows the Most Watched Videos of 2011

After Google release its known Zeitgeist of the year, it was the turn of YouTube reveal today what were the most watched videos in the world with its Rewind 2011. That list includes clips with huge variety, from musicals to bobinhos and funny. The most seen, in fact, probably will not please everyone, but follows the trend we saw in the Zeitgeist: the music video Friday, American Rebecca Black.

Originally the clip was posted in February, but for some reason Rebecca took the air the video and sent it again in mid-September, at which time she also released her second video. For statistical purposes, YouTube engineers must have considered views of the first and second sending. And for those who want to refresh your memory, here’s the video below.
