New York - Rebecca Black's infamous Friday video has topped all other YouTube videos of 2011 with 180 million views.

The Google Inc video-sharing site announced its most-viewed clips of the year on Tuesday.

The 14-year-old Black was turned into a viral video celebrity after her parents paid a production company to make the music video for her. Friday became an unlikely, off-key global hit. Because of a legal dispute with Ark Music Factory, the video has had two YouTube incarnations, both of which were tabulated in the year-end count.

The second most popular video was Ultimate Dog Tease, in which an owner taunts a dog with food and voices its reactions. Third was the Saturday Night Live digital short featuring Michael Bolton as a rabid Pirates of the Caribbean fan.
