A neon version of ancient Egypt and a whole lot of music from nursery rhymes, rap beats and one of the coolest Disney songs in recent years are some of the reasons why millions of Filipinos flooded YouTube in 2014, according to a new poll from Google.
Google, which owns the video sharing site, announced the top trending YouTube videos for this year, with Katy Perry’s single “Dark Horse” landing on the top spot as the most viewed music video in the Philippines this year.
The local top 10 music videos poll was dominated by artists from the US plus another viral hit from South Korean rapper Psy with Hangover. But local pop-rocker Yeng Constantino managed to secure 6th place on the coveted list with “Ikaw,” featuring fiance Victor Asuncion.
Google has a separate poll for non-music videos but in its no surprise that music also dominated the list in country widely known for its musical talents.
The sing-along version of “Let It Go” from Disney’s Frozen leads the non-music video poll which is interestingly followed by two nursery rhymes - Play Doh Ice cream cupcakes playset by Unboxingsurpriseegg and the ABC song by ABCkidTV.
Globally, a viral video of a dog donning a spider costume made it to the top of viral non-music videos list, along with Katy Perry’s “Dark Horse” for the music video list.
