8 Inexplicably Popular YouTube Videos

Some video's popularity on YouTube is incredible! And even though they are getting views in the hundred million range, you get it. They are music videos from the world's biggest pop stars, they star a cat or it's a kid biting his brother's finger. Okay, maybe what makes any YouTube video a success is still a little inexplicable. But the success of these 8 YouTube videos, makes absolutely no sense to me. Seriously, WTF?

 

Video Stroboscopy of the Vocal Cords

VIEWS: 157,183,093

I'm gonna go out a limb here and assume there is some vagina curiosity related reason for this video's success. I don't even have to go that far out on a limb because a lot of the comments on this video are from guys who can't afford a fleshlight.  Seriously, dudes...I hope you're trying to just be 'funny'.

 

An Experiment

VIEWS: 233,765,270

It's like a poor man's Diet Coke and Mentos experiment. Only with a cute girl screaming what I think is 'NOOKIE! NOOKIE! NOOKIE! NOOKIE!' And like 200,000,000 million more views. I mean she's cute, but not that cute!

 

5 Little Ducks

VIEWS: 40,073,810

If these numbers were about viewing the comments than I would completely agree with these numbers, because this is one of the most hilarious comment threads on YouTube.  I'm just hoping all these Pedobear wannabe sounding guys are kidding. They're kidding, right?

 

Michel Teló - Ai Se Eu Te Pego - Oficial (Assim você me mata)

VIEWS: 408,992,859

This dude makes Justin Bieber look like Kurt Cobain. I can only assume his mom watched this 408,992,859 times.

 

MEGALADON PREHISTORIC SHARK - but does it still exist

VIEWS: 68,709,195

This video is the stuff of my nightmares. Not only is there annoying as hell music, but I friggin' hate sharks!   Especially big a@@ scary ones that are supposed to be extinct. At least there was this comment to help lighten the mood: See this is what happens when whales and sharks f*@k each other.  That's some serious science there, guy!

 

Jessica Alba & Hayden Christensen Use the Force

VIEWS: 118,742,461

It seems pretty inexplicable that people would want to watch Hayden Christensen in anything after he almost single-handedly ruined the Start Wars franchise. I can only assume the thumbnail of him and Jessica Alba getting it on had something to do with the clicks. Too bad that 'scene' in the thumbnail is about 5 seconds of an incredible boring interview. Better luck next time fappers.

 

Justin Bieber Baby Chipmunks

VIEWS: 65,272,224

This is like the opposite of a Reese's Peanut Butter cup, two horrible things that are more horrible together.  It makes me feel like stabbing a pillow to death. The weird things is seeing comments from people who prefer this version to the original. DAFUQ?

 

The Glory Hole - Lake Berryessa

VIEWS: 50,960,117

The best thing about this video is thinking of all the poor saps looking for a glory hole video. The worst thing is thinking of all the poor saps looking for a glory hole video still being turned on by this one.
