There’s hardly been any movement on the charts today, which is not all that surprising considering that even YouTube’s usage does tend to dip over the major holidays. It seems that the majority of YouTube fans took the day off yesterday leaving the Entourage Trailer the number one spot for a third day running. In fact that charts welcomed only two new videos in the last 48 hours, both of them by amateur YouTube posters. Locked in at number two is a fan clip of Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson singing Christmas carols on Live With Kelly and Michael which delighted festive viewers enough to climb the charts. Our only other newcomer is a heartwarming clip of a dog chasing down the ambulance that carries his owner.
Aside for those two surprise additions the top twenty remained all but locked in place over the Christmas Holiday. Film and television trailers dominated the pack along with a surprisingly durable Saturday Night Live sketch featuring Amy Adams which has also enjoyed a three day run on the top twenty. Closing out the charts today is an equally durable video created by German Astronaut Alexander Gerst aboard the International Space Station. The breathtaking video, which features Earth views captured in timelapse by Gerst and set to some very chill electronica, is only the latest example of the ESA’s surprising YouTube prowess.
