Perhaps the best website ever created of all time, Youtube is visited by billions of visitors every day, searching for funny video clips, music videos, movie trailers or instructional videos created to solve daily problems. Among the vast amount of videos that were uploaded, plenty of them are definitely outstanding and generated a lot of views.
Here we take a look at top 50 most viewed videos on YouTube of all time:
1. The Evolution of Dance
You only need 6 minutes to become a superstar. Judson Laipply, a 30-year-old comedian/motivational speaker from Cleveland, created this video titled ‘The Evolution of Dance‘ back in year 2006 which features the comedian dancing to 32 different songs over a six minute period. From Hound Dog of Elvis Presley to Dirt Off Your Shoulder of Jay-Z, he has managed to compile a list of songs from various famous artists and created a dance with his unusual dance medley.
“Girlfriend” is a song by Canadian sweetie Avril Lavigne, released as the single for her 3rd album, The Best Damn Thing. When the song was 1st released in US, it topped the US Billboard Hot 100 and the chart in Australia for 6 weeks, while hanging on the 2nd spot in the UK. It caused a bit of controversy when it was reported that the views were generated by auto-refreshing bot.
The YouTube video of the Avril Lavigne song Girlfriend has also been accused of having an exaggerated number of views due to the use of a link with an auto-refresh mechanism posted by AvrilBandAids, a fansite devoted to Avril Lavigne. Clicking on the link will automatically reload the YouTube video of Girlfriend every fifteen seconds. Fans of Avril Lavigne are encouraged to: “Keep this page open while you browse the internet, study for exams, or even sleep. For extra viewing power, open up two or more browser windows at this page!”
Nevertheless, it’s still a good music video and definitely a nice song from the queen of pop.
