#YouTubeRewind 2014: Celebrating what you created, watched and shared in Australia

2014 was chock full of YouTube moments that got everybody talking. We were pranked by a spider dog in Poland, learned how to become a man with the Bondi Hipster, debated about the veracity of shark videos and watched total strangers share a first kiss. We laughed, we cried, and yes, we sang along to “Let It Go” roughly a bajillion times.

Here are the top trending videos for 2014 in Australia, based on views, shares, comments, likes and more. This year, the list represents the amazing variety of creativity brought to YouTube each day, including social commentaries, pranks, advertisements, and thrilling moments from traditional media and big names on YouTube.
