Top 5 Viral Videos of 2017

YouTube still remains the best place to see funny organic moments, well-produced art, and cultural moments we’ll never forget. Let’s look back at the top five viral videos of the past year.

1. Children interrupt BBC News interview

Professor Robert Kelly does an interview with BBC News on a serious topic. All is going well until his little toddler interrupts, blissfully unaware.

2. Ed Sheeran Carpool Karaoke

This isn’t the only time we see Ed Sheeran on the list, and last year James Corden’s Adele Carpool Karaoke topped the list. It comes as no surprise that the collaboration of the two turned out to be such a hit.

3. Darci Lynne: 12-Year-Old Singing Ventriloquist Gets Golden Buzzer

America’s Got Talent is always good for a viral video. This moment was especially noteworthy as the rare golden buzzer was pressed by the judges’ panel, sending Darci Lynne through to the round of live shows.

 4. ED SHEERAN – Shape of You | Kyle Hanagami Choreography

All of you folks who like to bust a move will love this one. Kyle Hanagami put together 2017’s most memorable choreography video, featuring, that’s right, Ed Sheeran.

5. Lady Gaga’s FULL Pepsi Zero Sugar Super Bowl LI Halftime Show

Lady Gaga put together one of the more impressive Super Bowl halftime performances, full of special effects and fantastic music. That might be why it was watched more than 3.8 million times the very next day.
