YouTube has released a list of the top 10 most watched videos in 2012 today and has created a mashup which references and parodies the other top videos. Unsurprisingly, at the top of the list was Korean rapping sensation Psy’s Gangnam Style and the mashup is based around the Korean dance hit.

The video starts off with the band Walk off the Earth’s guitar being smashed to pieces by K-Pop star Psy before ‘Barack Obama’ is seen rapping the K-pop hit, while walking through a stable, in reference to the Obama vs. Romney rap battle which came in at number five on the list. There is then more Gangnam shenanigans before the video parodies Carly Rae Jepsen’s Call Me Baby before reverting back to K-pop.

The video site also does a breakdown of the top trending videos from country to country.
