11 Most Viewed YouTube Videos Of Duluth [VIDEO]
For most people, YouTube can be a great distraction tool. I was curious and decided to see what the most viewed videos of Duluth were, here they are.
A simple sweet video of Lake Superior being Lake Superior in the winter. The video gained national notice thanks to the Weather Channel and other outlets, this video has been viewed over 1 million times.
Living in the frozen tundra can get pretty brutal when it comes to winter driving. Of course the most viewed video is of winter driving in Duluth. StormChasingVideo caught some pretty great footage of how dangerous winter driving can be and racked up over 500,000 views in the process.
A few years ago a detox facility surveillance cam caught a Duluth Police Officer hitting a man in a wheelchair after the man put his hand on the officer's face. The officer was acquitted of assault chargers and dismissed from the force.
Back in 2005, Spirit Mountain hosted a FIM World Trials Event. Enjoy the six minute montage of the event that has been viewed over 230,000 times.
Duluth Trading Company isn't based in Duluth, but does have a store located Downtown Duluth. They tried their hands on funny TV commercials. Apparently if you buy these fire hose pants, not only are they immune to bear attacks, but they also allow you to grab a grizzly bear's butt and make it feel uncomfortable.
Racking up over 200,000 views is a story about Duluth's infamous Glensheen murders and is even one of Minnesota's most talked about stories. It's a rather short video, but definitely interesting.
Live news bloopers are hilarious, especially when it's in your hometown. Julie Pearce who is now a nurse, used to be a news reporter and I'm sure she never forgot about this mishap of words.
Back in the mid 2000's when jumping on things was cool, afew Duluthians created a Duluth Parkour video and even submitted it to an Indie film Festival
Although the video doesn't say where this intersection is, it's another display of how dangerous driving in Duluth can be during the winter months.
Avenged Sevenfold rocked Amsoil Arena back in 2011 and during the show they picked a member of the audience to come up and play guitar with them.
By far my favorite video on the list (because it's a video game and zombies) was someone created a custom Duluth map for the game 'Left 4 Dead 2'. There's just something about your hometown being in a video game, not to mention you get to battle zombies. It's a little over a hour long of game play, so I started it where you can see the William A. Irvin and Canal Park. Feel free to watch the whole thing if you like though.
I decided to throw a bonus video on list, our most viewed video on YouTube. We went to DQ on Grand in West Duluth and Chuck taught us how to make the cones which are a lot harder than they look.
