    Is any other Transworld Snowboarding video even close? Nope. Shaun White’s Double McTwist 1260 video – which was captured at a Grand Prix practice session on Jan. 22, 2010 – shook the Snowboarding World. Oakley’s Global Snowboarding icon threw it down right before the Winter Olympics, where he bagged the Pipe Gold with that very trick, of course (which ripped a hole in the O-zone layer itself…with the insane video views from everywhere). It’s no surprise that the original video took the very top honors for Transworld Snowboarding’s Top Ten Most Viewed Videos Of 2010. No. 1 with no question.
