Everyone’s Scratching Their Heads Over YouTube’s Most Popular Vid Of 2017 WorkpointOfficial YouTube

We interrupt your standard evening broadcasting to present to you a video you have never even heard of, and yet, is apparently the most popular Youtube video of the year. 

YouTube has just dropped a list of their top 10 most popular videos of 2017, and while 90% of said list is well, exactly what you'd expect to see in a defining list of popularity, number one is completely out of left field! 

Coming in at number one was 'Until we will become dust - Oyster Mask | THE MASK SINGER 2'

Ring a bell? 

I mean, please someone pull me out from my apparent rock living situation, but this win is a shock to me. 

Take a look: 


In case you were wondering - because everyone here definitely was - The Mask Singer is a Thai singing competition program presented by Kan Kantathavorn.

The rest of the list looks slightly more expected:

  1. Until We Will Become Dust – Oyster Masked (ตราบธุลีดิน – หน้ากากหอยนางรม) | THE MASK SINGER 2
  2. ED SHEERAN – Shape Of You | Kyle Hanagami Choreography
  3. Ping Pong Trick Shots 3 | Dude Perfect
  4. Darci Lynne: 12-Year-Old Singing Ventriloquist Gets Golden Buzzer – America’s Got Talent 2017
  5. Ed Sheeran Carpool Karaoke
  6. Lady Gaga’s FULL Pepsi Zero Sugar Super Bowl LI Halftime Show | NFL
  7. “INAUGURATION DAY” — A Bad Lip Reading of Donald Trump’s Inauguration
  8. history of the entire world, i guess
  9. In a Heartbeat – Animated Short Film
  10. Children interrupt BBC News interview – BBC News

So, there you have it; a Thai competitive singing show beat Lady Gaga's Super Bowl halftime show - seems legit!
