YouTube revealed the top trending videos and creators in the Philippines for 2021. The list is an interesting mix that shows just what kind of videos captivated and entertained Filipinos in the middle of a pandemic — pranks, challenges, and even a vlog of a famous content creator’s pregnancy journey. So before we wrap up 2021, take a look at the YouTube top trending videos Pinoys watched the most throughout the year:
8. Chixmiss addressing her breakup with Dogie
It’s never easy watching any vlogger’s apology video nor is it easy for said vloggers to create one. Gaming video creator Chixmiss had to post hers last February 2021 to once and for all address all the issues regarding her breakup with fellow YouTuber, Akosi Dogie. The video has reached 4,558,081 views as of writing with thousands of supportive comments from her subscribers.
7. Cong TV spending P1M in 15 minutes
Of course, a Team Payaman vlog will make it into the top trending videos of the year. Cong TV did not spend P1M on himself. This selfless king made sure everyone could get a taste of that blessing BUT it comes with a catch. Team Payaman had to *team up* and buy as many groceries as they can in 15 minutes. Once done, the team with the longest receipt would win 150,000 Lyka Gems. If you’re feeling like you need to laugh today, this is a good watch.
