Best Viral Videos of 2012

From Corporate Comebacks to Call-to-Actions 2012 had it all.

With 2012 coming to a close here is a run down of our favorite viral videos of the year. From the historic Redbull Stratos to the hundreds of people stupid enough to record their attempts at the cinnamon challenge, 2012 gave us plenty of reasons to watch.

PSY owned 2012 with Gangnam Style, the year’s most notable viral video. It became the most watched video of all time with 901 million views and counting. To put that in perspective, it means that almost one in seven people alive today have seen the video. That’s more than the population of the United States, Indonesia, Brazil and Russia combined.

SD locals, Invisible Children, also made their mark with Kony 2012. Attracting 100 million views in 6 days and more than 10 million shares to date.
