London: An owner teasing its dog on YouTube has become the most-watched viral video of 2011.

The "Ultimate Dog Tease" was the most watched YouTube video in Britain in 2011, pipping a spoof clip of the wedding of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge by T-mobile that featured royal lookalikes, the Daily Express reported.

The Alsatian is shown in the video being teased by its owner about food and appears to speak English saying "You`re kidding me!" as he is told a beef steak has been eaten.

"Ultimate Dog Tease" has received more than 75 million views.

Third was "Winning" - an edit of actor Charlie Sheen talking on ABC, CNN and NBC about his troubled departure from the show "Two And A Half Men", to music by the Gregory Brothers.

Also on the list was "Nyan Cat", an animation of a cat flying through the air, chanting to synthesised pop music, IT engineer Michael Collings` impressive audition singing Tracy Chapman`s Fast Car on the ITV show Britain`s Got Talent, and "Talking Twin Babies", showing 18-month-old twins having a gibberish conversation in their parents` kitchen.

YouTube trends manager Kevin Allocca said: "The 10 most-watched YouTube videos of 2011 show that around the world, whatever language we speak, there are certain things that bring us all together around a computer screen or mobile phone - adorable babies, talented performers, and clever advertising."
