“Gangnam Style” Leads YouTube’s Top 10 Trending Videos of 2012

On YouTube, you may have noticed that the site’s icon in the upper lefthand corner has been taken over by a .gif of PSY. If you follow that link, it reveals “YouTube in Rewind 2012,” a playlist featuring the year’s top YouTube videos in 2012.

There’s also a mashup video mixing PSY’s “Gangnam Style” with Carly Rae Jepsen’s “Call Me Maybe,” because the two are the most viral music videos for the year.

To create their top 10 list YouTube didn’t just look at views, but looked at shares, searches, parodies, remixes and responses. Here are the Top 10:
