Plotting the most significant and popular vids per month over the year, noteworthy mentions include VW’s Super Bowl commercial, Steve Jobs’ passing, the riots in Egypt and Charlie Sheen’s ‘Winning’.

The year has seen its share of diplomatic moments, with President Obama announcing Osama Bin Ladin’s death, the Royal Wedding and the unfortunate Japanese Tsunamis.
