YouTube Canada Reveals the Top Videos of 2018
Thursday, December 06, 2018

TORONTO, Dec. 6, 2018 /CNW/ - This year, Canadians danced their hearts out to Drake, yodeled in Walmart, and played a lot of Fortnite. As we prepare to head into 2019, it's time for the annual look back at the year in pop culture on YouTube.

2018 was marked by surprising celebrity moments. In February, Kylie Jenner surprised the world with To Our Daughter, an 11-minute film detailing her pregnancy and the birth of baby Stormi, which was watched over 53 million times on its way to becoming not only the top video in Canada, but the #1 Trending Video globally. Will Smith vlogged all over the world. Oh, and he also jumped out of a helicopter over the Grand Canyon on a dare from Yes Theory, a group of YouTube creators who met while studying in Montreal. Rihanna started her own makeup tutorial series. And of course, Beyoncé's livestream from Coachella gave fans a front-row seat for #Beychella.

Canadian creators were front and centre on the list of the Top Trending Videos in Canada - AsapSCIENCE once again solved the internet's latest mystery -- seriously, is it Yanny or Laurel?, Ryan Reynolds took a DIY approach to marketing Deadpool 2, and the EhBee Family showed off some serious Fortnite dance moves.

Canada cried along with YouTube's "Brad and Angelina" as Liza Koshy and David Dobrik shared the news of their breakup, celebrated with Meghan and Harry on their wedding day, and cheered on Rocket Man as he blasted into space.

Here are the moments that had Canada watching, commenting and sharing in 2018:
