It’s that time of the year where platforms like YouTube and Google unveil a list of things that trended in the year. This time, YouTube has revealed its top 10 list of trending videos along with the top 10 music videos that rocked the internet in 2017. The music video list didn’t surprise me because I have seen all 10 of them, but there were a couple of videos in the top 10 trending videos that I haven’t seen. Take the video below as an example, it’s a short animation about a boy who chases down the boy of his dreams at the risk of being outed.
It has garnered over 31 million views.
