There are plenty of YouTubers back in the Top 20 spotlight with videos from Superwoman and The Fine Bros trending strong this morning, but the top spot is dominated by a piece of surprising news. A CNN clip of New York City cops turning their backs on Mayor Bill de Blasio during a memorial for one of the two police officers killed earlier this month. Police unions have clashed with the mayor over his perceived lack of support for the NYPD during recent anti-police violence protests, but a visual display of protests is making huge waves in the media and online.
Elsewhere on the countdown, the Fine Bros gathered an all-star team of YouTubers to react to this 2014 “YouTube Rewind” video and frankly watching our faves react is more fun the reacting to the video ourselves. Pitbull, Ne-Yo, and Justin Bieber all dropped collaborations that are trending upwards this morning as are viral videos of the world’s most ornate gas station bathroom and a man paying off his parent’s mortgage just in time for Christmas. You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, you might even vomit with excitement all on today’s YouTube Top 20.
