Best You Tube Clips of 2012

Quote
"Only one of You Tube's official Top 10 videos was made by an average
Joe; the other nine were all professionally produced. “There are more
and more people who know how to build an audience, how to use YouTube,”
YouTube trends manager Kevin Allocca explained to the Wall Street
Journal. “There are companies who spend millions and millions of dollars
trying to do create these videos.”

You Tube's list is predominantly US - so the JCC picks are from members
and other sources — and some are not 2012 !

Kony 2012
Invisible Children, a movement seeking to end the conflict in Uganda,
created the film Kony 2012. They hoped it would accelerate the arrest of
Lord’s Resistance Army (LRA) leader Joseph Kony, who has been kidnapping
and abducting Uganda’s youth for nearly three decades. With more than
100 million views in six days, Kony 2012 became the most viral video in
history. Long - so watch this when you have 30 mins to spare.

The Nick Clegg Apology Song: I'm Sorry (The Autotune Remix)
When Nick Clegg decided to apologise for breaking the Liberal Democrat’s
promise to oppose a rise in tuition fees, satirical website The Poke
naturally created an auto-tune remix. It followed up the site’s equally
brilliant Leveson: The Musical and came to define the party’s 2012
conference. T-shirts were sold and the song even had an (unsuccessful)
chart run. However, the most awkward result of its success was Clegg
himself being forced to watch it on the Andrew Marr Show.
