The San Francisco Chronicle has published their take on the year’s top 10 Web viral videos.

They don’t explain their criteria – but it’s an interesting list:

  • Tina Fey As Sarah Palin: Not only was Fey’s impression of the Alaskan governor arguably the seminal pop culture event of the year, it also represented a turning point in the paradigm between TV and the Web. More people watched Fey’s sketches on and than on television.
  • The Real Palin: Though Fey’s many parodies of Sen. John McCain’s running mate set the Internet on fire, the real McCoy gave her a run for her money. 
  • Christian the Lion
  • Yes We Can
  • Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog
  • Paris Hilton Responds to McCain Ad
  • Sarah Silverman and Matt Damon
  • Puppy Cam
  • Frozen Grand Central
  • Late-night Hosts Brawl
Fred seems conspicuously missing from the list; let me know if you see any other surprises.
