Te Reo video tops NZ's most watched YouTube videos

The top YouTube videos that Kiwis watched in 2017 had a distinctly Māori flavour.

For the first time, two of the top 10 videos were in Te Reo - including number one.

Maimoa Music's hit single Wairua took out the top spot, and a cover of the classic waiata Tiaho mai rā by Jessica & Tiana Waru came in ninth.

Kiwi comedians Jono and Ben also made the list with their satirical take on the viral kids interrupting BBC interview clip.

Ed Sheeran's carpool karaoke, ping pong trick shots and bad lip-reading of Donald Trump' inauguration also made the list.
