The wild weather in Buffalo, New York is dominating the YouTube charts this morning with multiple time-lapse videos capturing the wall of snow that has buried that city. Some residents, still trapped inside their homes, have used drones to capture aerial footage of the aftermath of the storms. A natural disaster of a different kind also made its debut on the charts today: the video for “Lips Are Movin’” the latest single from “All About That Bass” star Meghan Trainor scored a spot in the top five while Trainor parody “All About That Baste” from The Holderness Family also jumped on at 19.
Also in the charts today, a couple of videos that have been making headlines. Multiple users have uploaded clips of the CNN interview in which anchor Don Lemon asked Bill Cosby rape accuser Joan Tarshis why she didn’t fight back by biting her alleged assailant. The interview launched a firestorm on social media that is currently driving views toward the user uploaded clips. CNN has yet to upload an official version of the exchange.
In true Disney fashion, the house of mouse claimed the top slot on YouTube with the release of the first official trailer for its live-action Cinderella remake. The trailer gives fans their first look at Lily James’ Cinderella, as well as Cate Blanchett’s wicked stepmother and Helena Bonham-Carter’s typically over-the-top Fairy Godmother.
