Once he sat on the throne at the top of YouTube mountain – a seat that is now kept warm by the bottom of a cheeky Swedish fella with too much energy – but despite Ryan Higa no longer being the number 1 YouTuber in the world, he’s still freaking massive and his videos are still awesome.

The question is, which of his videos are his most-watched? Well nows the time to find out: Here are NigaHiga’s top five most-watched videos:


5. How To Be Emo – 35 Million Views

NigaHiga was way ahead of his time when it came to thinking up genius YouTube video concepts. For example, he was already nailing the immensely popular genre of ‘how to’ comedy videos, all the way back in 2007:


4. The iPod Human – 40 Million Views

You need to understand: this was cutting edge satire back in the day. We don’t know if they even still make iPods at this point (?) but back in 1886 or whenever this video was filmed, iPods were the height of technology. Either way, it’s still a real funny video:


3. How To Be Ninja – 40 Million Views (slightly more than the last video)

Another old video? Yep! Hold on to your hats, folks (nice hats btw) – cos things are going to stay retro AF for a little while longer:


2. How To Be Gangster – 42 Million Views

Kind of a pattern emerging here, isn’t there?


1. Nice Guys – 61 Million Views

Holy Heck! A video that wasn’t filmed using a potato!

Ryan’s fantastic musical number ‘Nice Guys’ is both super catchy and has a great message. In the video, our hero Ryan takes lessons from YouTube Singer/Hunk Chester See on how to hit on girls – and learns that treating them ‘like trash’ is the way to get their attention! Obviously he learns that that’s nonsense – and just in time for a fairytale ending! Beautiful:
