Every morning, we comb through YouTube's search data to investigate top spiking search terms and the videos they lead to:
  • wedding flash mob - In mid-December one couple decided to stun shoppers and get married via flash mob in Boston's Prudential Center. Searches for footage of the event, some of which recently hit YouTube, are on the rise this morning.

  • groff austin - Searches are also spiking for Austin Groff, the high school player who made the incredible shot featured in this morning's 4 at 4.

  • say anything alive with the glory of love - There's been a rise this morning in searches for the song "Alive with the Glory of Love" by the band Say Anything.
