Rounding Out Top 3: Michael Bolton's Ode to Jack Sparrow
Rebecca Black's infamous "Friday" video has topped all other YouTube videos of 2011 with 180 million views. The site announced its most-viewed clips of the year Tuesday.
The 14-year-old Black was turned into a viral video celebrity after her parents paid a production company to make the music video for her. "Friday" became an unlikely, off-key global hit. Because of a legal dispute with Ark Music Factory, the video has had two YouTube incarnations, both of which were tabulated in the year-end count.
The second most popular video was "Ultimate Dog Tease," in which an owner taunts a dog with food and voices its reactions. Third was the "Saturday Night Live" digital short featuring Michael Bolton as a rabid "Pirates of the Caribbean" fan.
