Most popular viral videos of 2013

Going viral is probably one of the most difficult things to accomplish, purely because no one knows what people want to see. Viral videos have been pretty broad over the years with Charlie Bit my Finger, that little kitten that gets tickled, Psy's Gangnam Style and Rebecca Black explaining the days of the week to us. The viral videos of 2013 have been just as varied as the ghosts of virals past, so let's see which videos have been raking up the views.

The viral sensation of Norwegian soldiers going crazy, got thousands of people worldwide to film their own rendition. In fact, 1.7 million people made their own Harlem Shake videos, that's more people than there are in Manhattan. That's the kind of viral statistic you want!
