Welcome to our first sponsored video list of 2023. Here are the most viewed sponsored videos posted to YouTube in January 2023.
The top 10 videos have over 29 million views, a significant drop compared to the top 10 in December 2022 (77 million views).
As we are only looking at ten videos, it’s hard to draw massive conclusions, but this may suggest there was less overall sponsored activity in January compared to December.
Please note that the view counts are as of February 16th, 2023 and our list only includes creator-produced videos on English-speaking channels.

I Stayed At Every Hotel On The Vegas Strip
Get PayPal Honey for FREE today ▸ https://joinhoney.com/safiya Honey finds coupons with one click. Thanks to Honey for sponsoring our adventure!! Check out part 2 of our Vegas adventure here! https://youtu.be/3mugPH2_qRo HELLO FRIENDS!! This is the video I threatened to film at some point last year - and finally, it's here!! We’re big fans of Las Vegas and, in a moment of delirium, decided to stay in every hotel on the strip and provide the internet with a full report of our thoughts - just in case you need it. So, we booked a hotel room at every single one of the 33 casino mega resorts on the Strip - to review the rooms, vibes, and activities at each one. What happens in Vegas, gets uploaded to youtube, as the saying goes. What did you guys think? Which hotels were your favorite? A quick note - it looks like the Strat price title is missing, we paid $80 there on a Sunday! Also, when we say "Operated Independently" - we mostly mean, not operated by MGM or Caesars! Also also - we did receive some comped experiences at Treasure Island, Resorts World, and Circus Circus - but that did not influence our review and we did not promise them positive coverage.

How Different Spillway Gates Work
If you ask me, there’s almost nothing on this blue earth more fascinating than water infrastructure. 🪒 Get a precision razor from Henson with code PRACTICALENGINEERING for a free pack of 100 blades: https://bit.ly/3CWiWJP Watch on Nebula: https://nebula.tv/videos/practical-engineering-how-different-spillway-gates-work Almost all dams need a way to release excess water when the reservoir is full. Although many dams use uncontrolled spillways, gated spillways provide more control over the flow, allowing us to build smaller, more cost-effective structures. There are countless arrangements of mechanical devices that have been used across the world and throughout history to manage the flow of water. But, modern engineering has coalesced to variations on only a few different kinds of gates.
