We’re all intense Youtube watchers here at Don’t Bore Us. Apart from managing our own channel DBU (subscribe!) we consume hundreds of hours of makeup tutorials, montages of My Chemical Romance and American late-night talk shows. We’re addicted. But even we had NO IDEA that of the top 40 most-watched videos OF ALL TIME… only 2 are NOT music videos.

In Youtube, music videos clearly make the world go around, and we are firmly on that bandwagon!

Number 1 was taken out by Charlie Puth and Wiz Khalifa with their incredible anthem, See You Again
