Here are the top trending videos for 2015 in New Zealand, based on the amount of time people spent watching, sharing, commenting, liking, and more. This year, the list represents the amazing variety of creativity brought to YouTube each day, including film parodies, pranks, creative safety videos, movie trailers, and hilarious moments from traditional media and big names on YouTube.
Given the interest in the recent launch of the YouTube Kids app in New Zealand, it’s no surprise to see that a video from Peppa Pig took out the top spot this year. Four global television moments also made the top Trending Videos list in Australia, paying homage to widely popular YouTube trends including in-car singalongs, the reading of mean tweets, and lip sync battles.
