YouTube Sensations of 2010

YouTube’s most-watched video of the year? It’s the viral video sensation created from the angry TV interview that 24-year-old Alabama student Antoine Dodson gave in response to the attempted rape of his younger sister.

His rant was turned into an auto-tuned song dubbed the “Bed Intruder Song”, attracting more than 61 million views.

YouTube didn’t include commercial music videos in its top-10 list. Otherwise, all the top 10 videos would have been by either Justin Bieber, Shakira, Eminem, Rihanna or Lady Gaga. With more than 406 million views, Bieber’s video for “Baby” topped all others, according to YouTube.

The “Bed Intruder” video was remixed by New York musicians Evan and Michael Gregory, also known for their Web series “Auto-Tune the News.” The song charted on iTunes, with profits being split between Dodson and the Gregorys.

The second most-watched video was another made-for-YouTube riff: a parody of Ke$ha’s “Tik Tok” by the musical sketch web series Key of Awesome. More than 50.6 million have watched the mock version of the popular pop song.

In the third most-watched video, a potential new pop star was born. In it, 13-year-old Greyson Chance of Edmond, Okla., sings Lady Gaga’s “Paparazzi” while playing piano at a sixth-grade music recital.

The top 10 also included: a video from the “Annoying Orange” series; a viral ad from Old Spice; the hysterically happy “double rainbow” guy; OK Go’s video to “This Too Shall Pass” (which YouTube said it made an exception and included in its rankings because the band is longer on a major label); the trailer for the “Twilight” film “Eclipse”; Jimmy Kimmel surprising a 3-year-old Bieber fan with the young star; and a stunt-driving video by rally racer Ken Block.
