Most-Watched YouTube Videos of 2013: Ylvis, Harlem Shake & More (WATCH)

YouTube released the top trending videos of the year, featuring the Harlem Shake and a Miley Cyrus spoof—and a riddle about what a certain animal says.

We knew the answer all along—it’s bark, yelp, or simper.

The question, of course, was, “What does the fox say?” When the Norwegian duo Ylvis posed it this summer, it stumped us good. We were so curious that we were frantically seeking the answer—more than 270 million times.

With that stroke of genius, Ylvis’s “The Fox” is the top trending video of 2013, according to stats provided by YouTube. But the list also includes some gems we have forgotten about by now. What’s the Harlem Shake again? That’s so last year…except it isn’t. It’s been a long, strange 2013.
