Popular YouTube videos worth watching.

Updated on October 13, 2016

Introduction


YouTube's been with us a long time now, from the first innocent blogging days and "youtube" minor celebrities to the now regular headline grabbing hitcounts / viewing numbers. It was deemed time then to seek all the videos with over 100 million views for any considered good or worth watching and share the results in this here very 'article'!.

A lot of these most popular videos are sometimes generally written off as just trash, however I believe there's some gems amongst the rough, below is selection for your hopeful viewing and listening pleasure.

The list goes from least views to most so if views are anything to go by (which might not be a huge factor) the quality should slowly increase with each video.
