The NY Times did a story on a woman back in 2014 who moved to North Dakota to work as a trucker in the oil industry. A decision that she apparently wishes she had not made. As of this posting, the video has over 1.7 million views.
Next up is a video uploaded in 2014 of a tornado in Watford. The video has over 2.2 million views as of this posting.
You may recall in 2013, KFYR hired a news anchor who cursed to himself right as his first broadcast was beginning. The clip went viral and AJ Clemente who was promptly fired ended up appearing on The Today Show, Kelly & Michael, and David Letterman.
Clemente decided to pursue teaching after his gaffe. But a video of his original blunder on YouTube is the third most viewed video relating to North Dakota. As of this posting, the video has over 3.1 million views.
Up next on our list is a video pertaining to a more recent event. President Donald Trump visited Mandan in September. His daughter Ivanka was on the visit as well.
At one point during President Trump's speech, he noted that he likes it when Ivanka calls him 'daddy.' The comment received ridicule from many entities but Stephen Colbert's reaction to that and other topics in the speech on The Late Show has garnered over 3.7 million views so far.
