YouTube has released its most viewed videos of 2011, and the results will probably not entirely surprise you.

One notable announcement pertains to viewing stats- according to YouTube’s blog, more than a trillion videos (1,000,000,000,000) were watched worldwide, which breaks down to about 140 videos in 2011 per person on Earth. YouTube also culled the top viewed videos globally, which- funnily enough- was topped by a nearly universally despised song, Rebecca Black’s “Friday”:

  1. Rebecca Black – Friday (OFFICIAL VIDEO)

  3. Jack Sparrow (feat. Michael Bolton)
  4. Talking Twin Babies – PART 2 – OFFICIAL VIDEO
  5. Nyan Cat [original]

  7. The Creep (feat. Nicki Minaj & John Waters)
  8. Maria Aragon – Born This Way (Cover) by Lady Gaga
  9. The Force: Volkswagen Commercial
