OK, my top ten YouTube videos are going to get pretty low ratings anyplace else. But where else are you going to see the list but on my blog? In a world where popular videos are viral at a million plus views, I’m way in the back yard.
I wasn’t very picky, of course, because these are the videos I made. I didn’t include any others, especially the ones that were professionally produced. I kept the bar pretty low because I had to. Any video with over 900 views made it to the list, which goes from lowest to highest number of views.
By the way, the only way I could come up with a Top 10 list was to make the bar 900.
10. “Dr. Jim Amos’ Dirty Dozen on Suicide Risk Assessment” published 2012: 940 views
9. “Dr. Jim Amos’ Dirty Dozen on Alcohol Withdrawal Treatment” published 2012: 1,063 views
8. “Dr. Jim Amos’ Dirty Dozen on Catatonia” published 2012: 1,668 views
7. “Mall of America Video” published in 2016: 1,728 views
6. “Dr. Jim Amos’ Dirty Dozen on Interpersonal Psychotherapy” published 2012: 1,840 views
5. “Dr. Jim Amos’ Dirty Dozen on Catatonia, NMS, Serotonin Syndrome” published 2013: 1,960 views
4. “Dirty Dozen on Dr. Allen Frances’ Dozen General Tips on Psychiatric Diagnosis” published 2013: 2,492 views
3. “Pseudobulbar Affect Top Ten” published 2015: 2,613 views
2. “Dr. James Amos’ Dirty Dozen on Somatoform Disorders” published 2012: 8,191 views
1. “Dirty Dozen on Factitious Disorder and Malingering” published 2012: 12,465 views
Now why would a video about abnormal illness behaviors like Factitious Disorder and Malingering be number one?
And why would “Mall of America Video” be my most popular non-work-related video? My wife and I did have a lot of fun there.
I like to think people enjoy “Pseudobulbar Affect Top Ten” because of my superb pseudo-rap acting style—and my hat.
