Norwegians are looking increasingly at YouTube to find constant new fun, interesting, or exciting video clips.

In 2016, music and music-related videos have been more popular than ever, and there has also been room for humor and entertainment.

An unknown Japanese performer tops the watch-list

There are, perhaps, not so many people who know who Kazuhito Kosaka is, but many have sung along to the Pen PPAP Pineapple Apple Pen song, which was the most watched video among Norwegians, disregarding whether they were music videos or not.

The British talk show host James Cordon has created the outrageous popular concept carpool Karaoke, and when he brought his version of Adele, he took it completely.

Among the most popular Norwegian videos were Petters Solberg’s car stunt, in which he dressed up as an elderly man and wandered around Bertel O.Steen employees, which became a YouTube hit.

So did Ylvis brothers’ a Capella and Prebz and Dennis’ channel trailer.

Super Twins strike again

In the music videos category, Norwegians took both first and second place respectively with Marcus & Martinus’ ‘Girls ft.’ and Madcon and Freddy Kalas with ‘Jovial’.

The Norwegian production-trio, Seeb, also hijacked a place among the top 10 with their remix of Mike Posner’s ‘I Took a Pill in Ibiza’.

There were also a number of international names on the list; in third place was Fifth Harmony’s ‘Work from Home ft.’ Ty with ‘Dollar sign’, followed by Calvin Harris with ‘This is What You Came For (Official Video)’ ft. Rihanna.
