Best 12 Viral Videos Of 2012

2012 has been another solid year for viral videos. From Kate Upton doing “Cat Daddy” to DMX singing “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer” and backwoods boat crashes to bus driver uppercuts, this year has given us a wide range of Internet stupidity and awesomeness–and it’s tough to determine which side of the spectrum we enjoy more. Psy must have spent thousands to produce his awesome “Gangnam Style” video, but is it really a better viral video than “Frog Sitting Like Human?” Millions of people have enjoyed the crap out of both.

Selecting a year-end list of the best viral videos is a tricky task. What criteria do you use: funniest? most views? biggest cultural impact? Since we don’t have the answer, we polled the Guy Code staff and cast for their favorites. The 12 videos that came up most often are below. Take a look and vote for your favorite viral video of 2012 below.
