The Google Inc. video-sharing site announced its most-viewed clips of the year Tuesday.

The 14-year-old Black was turned into a viral video celebrity after her parents paid a production company to make the music video for her. "Friday" became an unlikely, off-key global hit. Because of a legal dispute with Ark Music Factory, the video has had two YouTube incarnations, both of which were tabulated in the year-end count.

The second most popular video was "Ultimate Dog Tease," in which an owner taunts a dog with food and voices its reactions.

Third was the "Saturday Night Live" digital short featuring Michael Bolton as a rabid "Pirates of the Caribbean" fan.

Fourth was twin babies "talking" to each other in baby babble.

Fifth was Nyan cat, an animated cat with a Pop-Tart body flying through space and leaving a rainbow trail behind it.

Watch them all below.
