Gotta Watch: Best viral videos of 2011

We've posted a lot of videos on this year, but the ones that seem to be the most popular are the viral videos. From the hilarious barking cat to the incredibly talented mini-Nicki Minaj, 2011 has been jam-packed with some incredibly amusing videos. In the spirit of the end of the year, we at Gotta Watch put together the four most-watched viral videos on in 2011. Enjoy!

Rejection is funny - This video out of Missouri proves that laughing truly is contagious. A letter that would make most of us mad seems to have a very different effect on a little boy.

Tickle me penguin - What's cuter than a laughing baby? A laughing penguin.  More than 10,000 of you recommended this video of a penguin getting tickled on Facebook, and here's you chance to watch it again.

Play dead - Now we move from penguins to puppies.  Watch what happens when two puppies wrestle and one bites the other's ear.  It's a wildly popular video that you've simply gotta watch.

Kayaker's shark tale - Kayaking can be a relaxing form of exercise, until you end up paddling right next to a gigantic basking shark.  What makes this video so great is that the encounter is caught on tape.  You'll have to see it for yourself.

    Baby's bursting into laugh is a serious irony sweet-coated. They got it turned for the better, some income out of it.
    Hope up for the better coming year.

    These harlem shake vids are awesome... A business in my industry just put one out and then it's like everyone in the field did as well. Have to get on the band wagon :)
