Believe it or not, YouTube has been with us for over 10 years now, with the first video uploaded to the site on April 23, 2005. In the decade that has followed, millions of videos have joined that underwhelming clip of YouTube co-founder Jawed Karim visiting the zoo.
But which video, out of the vast collection of videos uploaded to YouTube since then, is your personal favorite? We want to create a list of the best YouTube videos of all time, and we need your help to do so. If you can spare five minutes and a few brain cells, we would be extremely grateful.
A Decade of YouTube Videos
We want to know, What’s Your Favorite YouTube Video Of All Time?
This question may seem simple on first reading, but it requires you to reach back into your memory vaults and remember YouTube videos from yesteryear. It’s likely that the first which comes to mind is the most memorable for you personally. Which should fit the bill perfectly.
If you’re a regular YouTube user you may find this a tougher task, but we’re sure that if you really rack your brains you’ll be able to pinpoint the one video that rises above all of the others. It can be a famous video, or one that only you and a handful of other people know about.
Famous options include Gangnam Style, David After the Dentist, The Evolution of Dance, Keyboard Cat, Old Spice Guy, The Harlem Shake, Leeroy Jenkins, Chocolate Rain, Ain’t Nobody Got Time For That, Nyan Cat, and even ol’ Rick Astley himself. All of which are perfectly valid options.
The video above, which YouTube made to celebrate its first decade in existence, features plenty of other videos you could select. Or perhaps you have a different video in mind, one which didn’t go viral and cross over into the mainstream. It doesn’t matter, as long as you share your selection with us in the comments below.
