Top 100 YouTube channels doubled views in a year

For much of 2014, the biggest star of them all was gamer PewDiePie, but he’s now been relegated into second place in the rankings by Funtoys Collector, the toy-unboxing channel formerly known as DC Toys Collector – and before that, Disney Collector.

The channel racked up 517.3m views on YouTube in January 2015 alone, well ahead of PewDiePie’s 417.9m. However, both are well up on their view counts from a year ago: 175.6m and 266.5m respective views in January 2014.
