And the 3rd position is for “It Gets Better” by Google Chrome which completes this week’s Top 3.

Here we have footage from a very healthy school project to get children exercise more. In this routine powered by WAT-AAH! the kids are surprised by an unannounced visit of Beyoncé. This video is truly viral in all it means. The company’s own YouTube channel has around 150 subscribers, but the video itself is watched nearly a million times! The video is online since May 3th. The project is called Fight Childhood Obesity and is created in association with The National Association of Broadcasters Education Foundation.

2. The Royal Wedding: Abridged!

If you didn’t had the time or the patience to watch the whole Royal Wedding of Prince William and Catherine Middleton, now you can see this abridged version made by Cribble Crap. This video shows all parts of the wedding in just one and a half minute.

3. Google Chrome: It Gets Better

The Google Creative Lab has launched a new campaign to promote the new Google Chrome browser. The campaign includes one of the first Google Chrome commercials named “It Get’s Better”. “It Get’s Better” is a anti-bullying and suicide-prevention project which has been started by Dan Savage in 2010. The main goal of this project is to help prevent suicide among LGBT youth and that’s why the commercial shows snippets of famous and non-famous people who try to give to teens by saying that it all get’s better. The video is online since May 2nd and has already more than 500.000 views.

4. David Cornfield Melanoma Fund

If you ever wondered what would you say to “younger yourself”, here’s a hint. Maybe it’s not the most pleasant one, but on the other hand it’s not possible to hide or run away from this. The video got almost 400K views within a few days and we hope it will get much more and spread the awareness of melanoma. Follow the David Cornfield Melanoma Fund channel, looking forward to more videos.

5. Ultimate Dog Tease

We all know the Look Who’s Talking movies. The creator (Klaatu42 a.k.a. Andrew G.) of this video took it to the next level. With the use of original footage of animals and syncing their mouth movements with funny strong scripting, he managed to get a viral video over and over again. His own channel has 167,000 subscribers and this video has generated 4,7 million views! The video is up since May 1st. You can connect to Klaatu42 also on Facebook and Twitter.
