These videos filled your Facebook wall, clogged your Twitter feed and even made it on the six o’clock news. Here are the most memorable videos of 2013:

Robin Thicke – Blurred Lines ft. T.I., Pharrell
243,148,197+ views

Undoubtedly the most loved and hated music video of 2013. We’re showing you the clean version, but the video made headlines for it’s uncensored one. You know, the one where models prance around with nothing but nude panties. Some people were so outraged by the song and video (specifically the “I know you want it” lyrics) that some labelled it a “rape song” for endorsing what people believed to be non-consensual sex. Bad message with a catchy tune? You be the judge. Either way, it’s the video that has skyrocketed Robin Thicke’s career and one of the most of the most watched videos of the year.

Miley Cyrus – Wrecking Ball
449,541,635+ views

Looking back on it now, it’s just Miley being Miley. But when “Wrecking Ball” first came out back in September, it started an entire frenzy. Why is she making out with a sledgehammer? Why is she riding a wrecking ball naked? Answer? Because it’s Miley! If we learned anything from the “We Can’t Stop” video, we know she’s into doing some pretty weird things sometimes and she doesn’t care what you think. So just sit back and enjoy the show.

Taylor Swift – I knew You Were Trouble (Goat Version)
3,872,854+ views

Some brilliant human being (no sarcasm here) decided to mix in some crazy goat sounds into Tay Swift’s “I Knew You Were Trouble” and yielded some hilarious results. There are other goat versions of popular songs out there, but this is by far the best one. Is this available on iTunes?

PSY – Gentleman
613,685,049+ views

“Gentleman” was the much anticipated single after PSY’s hit “Gangnam Style.” Although it didn’t cause the same hysteria that Gangnam did, it still managed to be one of the most viewed videos of the year. Plus, we’re sure you’ll be jamming to this tune at that upcoming NYE bash.

Worst Twerk Fail Ever – Girl Catches Fire
15,019,249+ views

You know that saying, “If it’s too good to be true then it probably is.” Well, this video is exactly that. Jimmy Kimmel fooled the world when he revealed he was behind this twerk fail video and we all cried a little inside because part of us hoped it was the real deal. Well played Jimmy, well played.

Dove Real Beauty Sketches
61,212,973 + views

Leave it to Dove to challenge our perception of beauty. Ironically, a perception that Dove and many similar corporations like to cash in on. But we’ll hand it to them and their brilliant staff who came up with this video. We really are our harshest critic.

How Animals Eat their Food
92,318,358+ views

This isn’t National Geographic or anything. Just a funny guy interpreting how animals eat their food, and it’s pretty freaking awesome.
