We all love videos so I thought it would be fitting to create a post on the 10 best viral YouTube videos of all time.
In doing research for this post, I saw many other top viral video lists varied based a number of variables and criteria.
Basically, the list depends on how you slice and dice it.
In other words, these types of posts are very subjective.
What are your criteria for making it a viral YouTube video?
Here are my criteria:
- The video needed to reach a large age range
- It must be a part of pop culture
- You can watch it on YouTube
- Ranked by number of YouTube views
Here’s my top 10 list of viral YouTube videos:
10. Will it Blend? iPad version
