This year's YouTube Rewind list reveals that most Singaporeans enjoy watching humourous sketches about Singaporeans and the Singaporean life.  . 

The top video was determined by the many ways that users interacted with the video such as sharing, liking or commenting on it.

According to YouTube, there is no exact formula for a viral video but "popular videos tend to be entertaining or informative, and contain something that users want to share with others".

Following are the top 10 most viewed YouTube videos in Singapore for 2013:

1.      Ylvis - The Fox (What Does the Fox Say?) [Official music video HD]
