When we boiled down 2012 in terms of the most-watched YouTube videos focusing on pop culture, we discovered some interesting connections with a musical twist. Were going to take you on an adventure, a 12-step journey, that connects the dots between select moments in 2012's landscape. Join us as we follow the beat from "Gangnam Style" to "Call Me Maybe" to "Sesame Street" and beyond, before we come full circle with PSYs year-ending anthem. We selected the following videos, several among the most viewed on YouTube, to illustrate the often surprising connections between seemingly unrelated moments. Please note: The following videos are not a list of the top 12 most-watched videos of the year; instead, it's a medley of popular videos.
