Billions of clicks: This is the most successful YouTube video of all time

From gamers to hobbyists to TV broadcasters, everyone can upload their videos here and – at least in theory – speak to an audience of billions. Now Youtube has it "Top trending"Videos published in Germany for 2020.

"Top trending" does not simply mean the most clicks. Instead, videos are listed here that are not only called up exceptionally often, but are also viewed in a particularly broad target group, have a high number of viewers within a very short time and a few more points. So the clips met with widespread popularity and great interest and were not only watched by typical fans.

And from these points of view, it is not joke videos or the like that stand out – but many serious topics:

The video is in first place "Corona is just getting started" by the chemist and science journalist Dr. Mai Thi Nguyen-Kim. At the beginning of April, in her 20-minute video, she clearly and comprehensibly describes everything that one should know about the pandemic at this point in time. Over 6.4 million viewers gratefully took advantage of this.

Serious topics dominate the trending videos

Second place is also a serious issue: violence against women. The two moderators Joko and Klaas devote a quarter of an hour to the topic on Pro Sieben "Men’s worlds – harassment of women". It was also viewed on YouTube over four million times.

The Rezo video, in which the Youtuber settles accounts with the press, landed in fourth place and physicist Harald Lesch clarified the corona virus in fifth. The year 2020 – in addition to the house inspection of the new house of the Youtuberein Bibi (3rd place) – apparently also had many serious topics that were of burning interest to YouTube users. Here is the full list:

In the USA, the top trending video of the year is a mixture of seriousness and entertainment: It is the comedian Dave Chapelle who talks a lot about the protests after the death of George Floyd in his program.

The video in position two was made during and because of the corona lockdown in the USA but is wonderfully instructive and silly at the same time:

We are all looking for the truth. For some people, it’s all part of a conspiracy. In the video, shows what it looks like, how it comes about and what we can do.

Thousands of people take to the streets during these weeks. Criticism of the Corona measures is legitimate, the actions of those in power to question a basic attitude in journalism. But what is an opinion, where does the line between opinion and conspiracy blur and when do we talk about a conspiracy scenario? Who puts something like this into the world in what way, who is receptive to it – and how do you meet the followers? pursued these questions in a large video research and came across corresponding recordings and popular views. These can not only be found at demonstrations in Stuttgart and Berlin or in videos with a wide range on YouTube. There are also worldviews that one of the makers of this article encountered in his own personal environment outside of journalistic activities. He talked about this with people who are particularly well versed in this field.

When an opinion becomes a conspiracy theory, how a conspiracy scenario works, how the makers propagate it and why people believe in a large corona conspiracy can be seen in the video above or if you click here.

Klaas Heufer-Umlauf runs the podcast together with Thomas Schmitt and Jakob Lundt "Baywatch Berlin". In the current episode, Klaas revealed a sad secret: Grandma Violetta is dead. She was already there "Neo Paradise" Been part of Joko and Klaas shows. In 2015 she left "Circus halligalli" in the middle of a broadcast. After that, nothing more was heard from her.

Klaas: "God bless them"

In the usually fun podcast round, things got serious when Klaas initially spoke cryptically about a dead person. "Do you know who I was thinking of lately? And after a while I thought again: ‘Man, what kind of a special person was that?’"says the former Viva moderator. "God bless them. Unfortunately she is no longer alive. But many viewers who have been with us for years and have seen our programs will surely still remember them." It wasn’t until a little later that he became more specific and said: "I’m talking about Grandma Violetta."

Silence about cause of death

Joko and Klaas never publicly announced their death, but Violetta died three years ago. Klaas did not name a cause of death. The talk trio wallowed in shared memories. Klaas in particular said she was always "bizarre and surprising" been.

He also made it clear: "Any craziness that came from her on the show was really her essence. And when the cameras were off, she was just the same."

The moderators Joko and Klaas competed against ProSieben again. This time they suffered defeat and are now faced with the punishment.

In the latest episode "Joko & Klaas against ProSieben" the entertainer duo had to assert themselves in six games and a final on Tuesday evening against their employer ProSieben. But a win and thus 15 minutes of live airtime as a profit were not granted to them this week. Instead, Joko Winterscheidt and Klaas Heufer-Umlauf have to take on an annoying task as a punishment.

The two TV stars have to speak all trailers for the film preview on ProSieben for a week. The station already delivered a foretaste on Twitter.


We won! The penalty for @jokoundklaas: You have to speak for us program trailers. All. From today and until the next episode # JKvsP7. And this is what it looks like. A little foretaste …

– ProSieben (@ProSieben) May 20, 2020" ,

That’s how the show went

The station can be represented in most of the games by prominent faces. And in the end they were stronger than the comedy stars. The entertainers Max Giermann and Katrin Bauerfeind were among the opponents. Joko and Klaas won four of the six preliminary round games and thus gained an advantage in the final: instead of ten, they only had to solve six tasks under time pressure – but that was not enough for victory.

The TV viewers were still enthusiastic and posted how entertaining the show was. The success of the show was also evident from the ratings.
