It’s all about Chris Pratt, pop music, and the President on this, today’s YouTube Top 20. Americans loves movie trailers so much that now even the trailers have trailers. Holding down the number one spot on the YouTube charts today is the teaser for upcoming trailer for Jurassic World, the long awaited Jurassic Park sequel. The teaser doesn’t give much away, the movie will feature dinosaurs, scientists, and Chris Pratt delivering a steely gaze. The full trailer will drop on Thursday and we predict a rapid climb into the top 10 given the anticipation, nostalgia, and star power behind this movie.
In other trending topics, President Obama makes multiple appearances as millions of Americans watch his historic speech about immigration reform. The New York Times’ coverage of the speech earned slightly more views than the White House’s own video release suggesting that Americans would still like their news with a side of professional analysis or maybe just that that The Times snagged a more flattering camera angle. Saturday Night Live got the biggest bump out of the news, their School House Rock-esque cold open inspired by the President’s executive order took the number two spot.
Finally, there’s plenty of pop in the charts proving that YouTube is still a prime destination for new music. Pop peddler Katy Perry officially announced her threat to host the Super Bowl Halftime Show with a viral ad dropped during last night’s American Music Awards. Also holding strong on the charts, the music video for “Night Changes,” the first single off One Directions latest album release Four, and a leaked Beyonce track called “Ring Off.” The trailer for Pitch Perfect 2 remains in heavy circulation at number eight, bolstered solely by views from our own Rachel Kiley, and YouTube’s own pop princess Megan Nicole cracked the top twenty with the video for her single “Fun” which will be featured at the 2015 YouTube Music Awards.
