Top 5 Most Viewed Stories of 2011

Happy New Year! Before we post 2012's stories, let's take a look back at some of 2011's most watched videos from the First Person Arts YouTube channel.

#5 Janet, “Family Ties”
Buckle up and hit the road for a family trip with “Family Ties” Winner and Audience Favorite, Janet in our #5 most viewed story. After checking out her tale, you’ll be keeping on the sunny side with Janet all the way from St. Louis to Florida.

#4 Bernardo Strange Encounters
Tune into our #4 pick by Bernardo and follow the signs to experiencing how strange the everyday can be.

#3 Sarah, “The Ex-Files”
Load up your Uhaul and scavenge through the classified ads for a new home fitting for a recent divorcee in this our #3 most viewed story by Sarah.

Oh, and be sure to steer clear of mobile homes rendered in brick where plumbing is irrelevant. But you probably knew that already.

#2 Marla, “Beasts”
Our #2 pick teaches us an important lesson about the economics of gravity. Skeptical about trickle down theory? Not in West Philadelphia. Check out the #2 most watched video by Marla and find out what crashes through her bathroom ceiling. (And no, it wasn’t a hallucination after not taking her anxiety meds for months.)

#1 Rodrick, “Do the Right Thing”
Unsurprisingly our #1 most viewed video of 2011 is a very special story that puts the “I do” in “Do the Right Thing.” Witness the first-ever First Person proposal in the video below.
