Dog Tease is top 2011 YouTube video

A "talking" dog has topped a list of the most-watched videos on YouTube in the UK.

The animal is shown being teased by its owner about food and appears to speak English, saying "You're kidding me!" as he is told that delicacies have gone elsewhere.

"Ultimate Dog Tease" was the most-watched YouTube community video in the UK in 2011.

It beat a spoof clip of the wedding of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, an advert for mobile phone network T-Mobile, which featured royal lookalikes dancing.

Third was "Winning" - an edit of actor Charlie Sheen talking on ABC, CNN and NBC about his troubled departure from the show Two And A Half Men, to music by the Gregory Brothers.

Also on the list was "Nyan Cat", an animation of a cat flying through the air, chanting to synthesised pop music, IT engineer Michael Collings' impressive audition singing Tracy Chapman's Fast Car on the ITV show Britain's Got Talent, and "Talking Twin Babies", showing 18-month-old twins having a gibberish conversation in their parents' kitchen.

The list of most-watched videos was released by YouTube's owner, Google.

YouTube trends manager Kevin Allocca said: "The 10 most-watched YouTube videos of 2011 show that around the world, whatever language we speak, there are certain things that bring us all together around a computer screen or mobile phone - adorable babies, talented performers, and clever advertising."
