Admit it: You, like everyone else in the world, have at one time or another, sat down in front of YouTube to watch a video, only to find yourself getting sucked down a rabbit hole of content. You might start off watching a video of a baby panda sneezing, and you end up watching “17 Unexplained Ocean Mysteries.” But more than anything, we love to watch videos that go “viral.” Some viral videos hit the scene, and spend only a few weeks in the spotlight before fading away, while others just seem to stick with us.

We then took a look at YouTube search volume by state to see which of those fifteen videos each state searches for the most in order to determine the states’ favorite viral videos.
