    It's not ranking above the official one for me when I click your link, but it is right below it. That video of the babies is viral right now, so I'm not surprised.

    Positive high arousal , anxiety, anger and funny videos can go viral over low arousal videos like sadness.....

    just read one article on searchenginewatch...

    I'm seeing more and more that the "suggested" videos are based on my Youtube history. If YT is doing this for "suggested" videos, I wouldn't be surprised if YT search also doesn't start shifting to more "personalized" search results. Google has already done this and YT is owned by Google.

    I don't know if this applies to the OP, but it's possible she is seeing personalized results, based on her YT surfing and searching history.

    Grace, are you logged into a YT account when you do the search?
