YouTube brings together the year's biggest viral stars in 2013's Rewind mashup

By on December 11, 2013, 4:00 PM

It’s hard to believe but 2013 is nearly in the record books. To celebrate the occasion, YouTube recently invited some of this year’s most popular video acts to come together and create a special mashup video – a year in review of sorts.

If you’ve kept up with viral videos this year, you’ll likely see many familiar faces. In fact, there are more than 50 cameos in this year's Rewind. Given the fact that 80 percent of all YouTube views come from outside of the US, it comes as little surprise that global phenomenons like Psy and Ylvis are prominently featured in the clip.

Mashup aside, here’s a list of the top trending and music videos for 2013 according to YouTube.

The only thing Athene has ever done is raise money for charity... and even then he uses some pretty troll methods. There is no reason why he should be in this list....
