SLIDESHOW: Top Viral Video of 2011?

4 of 10

Webcam 101 for Seniors

Bruce and Esther Huffman accidentally recorded a video of themselves on their new webcam. After their granddaughter uploaded the video, the public fell in love with this incredibly sweet and funny elderly couple.
  1. Rebecca Black's "Friday" (Official Music Video)

    Rebecca Black's "Friday" (Official Music Video)

    The most "disliked" video ever to hit YouTube, Rebecca Black's "Friday" propelled the 14-year-old to viral video infamy. And we're still trying to get those dang lyrics out of our heads. "Partyin', partyin' (Yeah!)"

  2. Nicki Minaj's "Super Bass" by Sophia Grace Brownlee

    We're not sure what we love most about Sophia Grace Brownlee: her amazing singing ability or her adorable personality! This 8-year-old's talent landed her on the Ellen Degeneres Show where she met Nicki Minaj.

  3. Homeless Man With a "Golden Voice"

    Homeless Ted Williams' "golden voice" rocketed him to stardom and landed him countless job offers. Unfortunately, the media attention was too much to handle and drove Williams back to heavy drinking.

  5. The Crazy Nastya** Honey Badger (original narration by Randall)

    Nature documentaries are often pretty snoozeworthy. But not when you combine gruesome footage with sassy narration by Randall!

  6. The Force: Volkswagen Commercial

    The Force: Volkswagen Commercial

    An adorable kid combined with a classic movie is the perfect recipe for a Super Bowl commercial turned viral video.

  7. Girl Falls in Mall Fountain While Texting

    Girl Falls in Mall Fountain While Texting

    The moral of this viral video: Don't text and walk, especially if security cameras are around. And, oh yeah, if an embarrassing video of you goes viral, don't prolong the story by threatening to sue.

  8. Anderson Cooper Got the Giggles

    Anderson Cooper Got the Giggles

    Anderson Cooper got the giggles and we'll never let him forget it! While reporting about a celeb urinating on the floor of a plane, on his regular segment the RidicuList, Cooper just couldn't hold himself together.

  9. Jimmy Kimmel Halloween Candy Prank

    Jimmy Kimmel Halloween Candy Prank

    Jimmy Kimmel challenged parents to play a Halloween prank on their kids and then to post the video footage on YouTube. The results are nothing short of hilarious!

  10. Lily's Disneyland Surprise!

    Lily's parents surprised her with a trip to Disneyland and her reaction was totally priceless!

With the right combination of comedy, cute kids, talent, complete lack of talent, and (of course) cats you may have a viral video on your hands. We've combined 10 of our favorite, must-see viral videos of 2011.

Whether you loved her or loved to hate her, there's no denying that Rebecca Black's "Friday" was one of the most unforgettable (unfortunately) viral videos of 2011.

Another Internet singing sensation, 8-year-old Sophia Grace Brownlee from England, is arguably already more talented than Black, and she is certainly more adorable. We see stardom in her future!

Speaking of adorable, Bruce and Esther Huffman are one of the cutest elderly couples we've ever seen, even if they don't know how to use a webcam.

Ted Williams has one of the most amazing speaking voices we've ever heard and we're rooting for him to get his life together and make the most of it!

If you prefer funny videos, you probably enjoyed Anderson Cooper's giggle fit, the woman who walked into a fountain while texting, and Jimmy Kimmel's Halloween candy prank--so much crying!

And when it comes to 2011's top viral videos, who can forget Lily's Disneyland surprise, "The Force" Super Bowl Commercial, and, of course, the honey badger!

What about you? What do you think was the top viral video of 2011?

    Pepper-Spray Cop



    Actually I think that the "pepper-spray cop" was the top
    viral video, since it inspired so many pictures that you can
    now find on the internet...

    definitely Rebecca. and then they had to make her song a theme song for a commercial. i think my brain honestly lost some brain cells just from the voice and then the video and the voice combined did not make a good duet

    I really don't care if it was back in 2010. The "You Done Goofed!" video leak is unmatched when it comes to comical.
