YouTube unveils its top trending videos of 2018

YouTube has unveiled the top trending videos of 2018 and two of the top five videos are tear-jerkers. The list, based on a combination of shares, views and likes, features revealing moments with social media stars, impressive trick shots and, of course, a member of the Kardashian clan. 

1. To Our Daughter

The list finds Kylie Jenner's child birth announcement in the top spot with more than 75 million views. Titled, "To Our Daughter," the video is a touching mini-documentary about her pregnancy and birth of her and boyfriend Travis Scott's daughter, Stormi. The couple was able to keep her pregnancy and birth largely under wraps until then.

2. Real Life Trick Shots 2 | Dude Perfect 

Coming in at No. 2 is "Real Life Trick Shots 2," marking the third time Dude Perfect has made the list. The video features a compilation of people making difficult shots -- from sinking a garbage bag into a faraway trash can to landing two backpacks perfectly onto wall hooks.

In the fourth spot is the video of a kid yodeling in a Walmart, who we now know is Mason Ramsey and it features exactly what you think it does -- a kid yodeling in a Walmart. It's racked up nearly 60 million views.

5. Do You Hear "Yanny" or "Laurel"? (SOLVED with SCIENCE) 

Coming in at No. 5, "Do You Hear "Yanny" or "Laurel"? (SOLVED with SCIENCE)," features a debate that overtook the nation earlier this year. Yanny and Laurel – two words that look so different on paper but sounded so alike to some – briefly caused us to rethink what we hear.
