Kicking off what's sure to be a long string of "year in review" lists, the "YouTube Rewind 2014" mashes the trending, viral and popular videos over the past 12 months into one six-minute package.

"The video was a collaboration between 'more than 100 YouTube creators' from far and wide," wrote Billboard magazine's Elias Leight. "Various late-night hosts are also involved, including John Oliver, Stephen Colbert and Jimmy Kimmel. The music for the clip, a savvy blend of the year's hits, comes courtesy of DJ Earworm, whose annual 'United State of Pop' mash-up was premiered by Billboard last week.'



"2014 was chock full of YouTube moments that vaulted into pop culture," Google said in a statement. "We got pranked by a spider dog in Poland, learned what it’s like to walk the street for 10 hours as a woman in NYC, and watched total strangers share a first kiss. We laughed, we cried, and yes, we sang along to 'Let It Go' roughly a bajillion times."

Along with its annual "rewind" video, which has been viewed 10 million times since its release Tuesday, Google released its most viewed videos of 2014. The top trending video for 2014 was the Mutant Giant Spider Dog, by SA Wardega of Poland, the videographer who dressed his dog as a spider to scare people for Halloween. The video has 114.1 million views on YouTube.



Google listed the most viewed music video as Katy Perry's "Dark Horse," featuring rapper Juicy J, which currently has 717.1 milllion views.



The "YouTube Rewind 2014" video was an instant hit with social media.
