Designer Ibraheem Youssef iconifies the most viewed YouTube videos of all time. Do you recognize what each icon represents? I’m embarrassed to say that I probably know one too many of them.

Here’s the graphic in video form:

Like what you see? Grab the poster (along with the legend) for $50.

  • I find it ironic that this is a print. A cross-section snapshot in time turned into icons and then put on a… poster?!?!

    Doesn’t it make sense to embed the links to all the videos so one could actually watch them. Even the most diehard of youtube junkies probably couldn’t name all 100, how can one verify what they are. Of course, the fact that the list will change would necessitate an active instead of static list.

  • Just one question: Who’s the chick who sings that song?
