We all love a ‘Top Ten’ or a ‘Best Of” list, so we have been looking at the most viewed and shared videos of 2014. Whilst the lists vary slightly according to different sites, we noticed a trending theme when checking out the Top 10 YouTube videos of 2014 according to mashable.com. What is this theme?
Yep, strangers, random, regular people – just like you and me. Of course most people start off as unknown strangers and their videos become viral which increases their profile and popularity, and that’s the whole point of them making a video….but this list of videos uses strangers in a completely different way to those traditionally seeking fame
This top ten list includes:
Terrifying strangers x 2
Kissing strangers x 1
Being harassed by strangers on the street x 1
And for the purpose of continuing with this trend, let’s also include Singing Strangers x 2
That is 6 out of 10 – stranger videos!
Check out the full top 10 list and videos here and tell us your thoughts!
