Hot on the heels of Google’s 2011 Zeitgeist, YouTube has released a list of its most-watched videos in the UK this year.
Surprisingly the top spot isn’t taken by a cat, but is filled by a talking dog, followed closely by a T-Mobile advert that took advantage of the buzz surrounding the royal wedding.
T-Mobile is the only brand to make the list, which also includes a Britain’s Got Talent audition, talking twin babies and a few music videos.
YouTube has also revealed the most watched clips for sport, family and science, as listed below.
