YouTube Releases Top Videos of 2013 Lists for Comedy, Pranks, Parodies, Gaming and More

To wrap up 2013 for good, YouTube has gone absolutely crazy and released a new slew of lists collecting the top trending videos of the year (in addition to the ones we got a hold of earlier). This is the fifth consecutive year that Google’s ubiquitous online video platform has released year-end most popular lists, and the very first year that everyone reading said lists reacted by exclaiming “Wait, what the hell did I ever see in the Harlem Shake??” (seriously, YouTube says there were 1.7 million “Harlem Shake” videos uploaded this year — needless to say, you all should be ashamed of yourselves for making it so popular and thus forcing NMR cover it ad nauseum).

Watch the video category playlists below to see the most popular videos in order.
