2010 Year in Review: VIRAL VIDEO chart toppers - Sorry Justin Bieber

Okay with apologies in advance to Justin Bieber (who came in 6th).
The number one for the year is one that comes with warning:  this is strong video about domestic fighting and not for general audience. There is strong language as well as subject matter. The message of acceptance of abuse is not politically correct for teaching young people about boundaries in relationships.  Introduced in July of 2010. With over 230 million views and twice as many facebook shares, most of the interenet has voted for this video.  Eminem - Love The Way You Lie ft. Rihanna  

TOP 5 viral videos of the year for all venues  are:
  1. Eminem - Love The Way You Lie ft. Rihanna   
  2. Shakira in: Waka Waka (This Time for Africa) (The Official 2010 FIFA World Cup)
  3. Eminem - Not Afraid
  4. Bruno Mars - Just The Way You Are [Official Video]
  5. Airplanes (Feat. Hayley Williams of Paramore) [Video]
According to YouTube this has 270+million views with close to 6million FACEBOOK shares. There are also several duplicate videos

Is it fair to have 2 viral videos in the top 5? OH YES!
