Find out which are the popular YouTube channels and videos that have entertained Malaysians in 2020.
Home workouts using household items (and even some without equipment). Comedy sketches about coping with lockdowns. A live streamed celebrity solemnization. If we were asked to predict what trending YouTube content would be in 2020, we certainly would not have expected this.
But as the world copes with unprecedented changes to our lives, we have all turned to creators and artists to help make sense of these changes, find connections, and expand our boundaries beyond the four walls of our homes.
In Malaysia, this year’s top trending videos reflect our unique and personal needs to persevere and carry on as we adapted to the unforeseen challenges of 2020.
Entertainment has always been a staple of the local YouTube airwaves, and this year, it has proven to be more important than ever - through original music by creators Changyong and Dissy, a popular song parody by Alieff Irfan, or a short drama by Syahmi Sazli. Reality shows were also in the mix, be it by homegrown talents Bros Gang TV or global favorite Knowingbros. Apart from the fun, real-world events made it into the list of top trending videos, too: From happy moments, like the engagement of actor Mira Filzah and Wan Emir that was streamed live on YouTube, to more eye-opening reports of the state of lockdown in Malaysia. Tying these two genres is our love for all things food, be it challenges or mukbangs.
