Skeleton Hilariously Frightens Drive-Thru Employees

BuzzFeed makes its debut on top videos list

Halloween is right around the corner, so it's fitting that last week's top video, per VidIQ data, featured a skeleton going through fast-food drive-thrus—to hilarious effect. The video from MagicofRahat—which racked up 4.8 million views in a week—shows employee after employee jumping in fright as a pile of bones slowly drives up to the window.

BuzzFeed also made its debut on our list, taking the No. 2 spot with a fun and informative video explaining various bodily sensations, such as brain freezes and the chills. This is also the first week in recent memory that a Miley Cyrus-inspired video has not cracked the top 10. 

NOTE: Adweek’s VideoWatch Chart, powered by VidIQ, reveals the Top 10 Web Series Videos on YouTube every week. The chart tracks more than just pure views; VidIQ incorporates sharing data from Facebook, Twitter and YouTube, among other data sources, in an effort to measure true engagement. Every video is also ranked with VidIQ's proprietary score which helps judge the likelihood of a video being promoted in YouTube Related Videos, Search and Recommended Videos.

The ranking is also meant to capture "born on the Web" YouTube content. Thus, material like clips from TV shows, movie trailers, video games and music videos are not included.
