YouTube’s creators hit meme bingo in Rewind 2018

Share

These days, as YouTube becomes endlessly bigger and bigger it seems that people are more concerned with what is not in the Rewind than with what is.

The video which was posted on February 4, 2018, has been viewed 76,828,640 times.

Few can argue that when it comes to the most critically-acclaimed TV shows of 2018, YouTube Premium's Cobra Kai is one of the best around.

Numerous most memorable people and moments were left out of YouTube Rewind 2018.

The YouTube Rewind 2018 has been viewed more than 31 million times now but not everyone is happy with it. While the brothers featured heavily in Rewind 2017 their antics in 2018 must have been enough to get them bumped off of the list this year. The jumbo rocket was built to be the most powerful launch vehicle in operation and it took from Florida.

Will Smith is the biggest celeb to have joined YouTube in 2018 and with his bungee jump bday celebration, it made sense to have him kick things off.

Emerging and well-known YouTube stars also showed up in a big way in the year's "Top Trending Videos" list.

YouTube Singapore also released its second Rising Creators List to highlight emerging producers who have had significant subscriber growth over the past year. But were they in YouTube rewind? There were also viral clips like YouTube couple Liza Koshy and David Dobrik's breakup announcement, the great "Laurel or Yanny" debate, and the Royal Wedding of Harry and Meghan to help round out the list of the highest trending clips.

In case you aren't aware, Rewind is meant to showcase the top creators and content on YouTube each year. While previous years have been... interesting, this year's attempt pretty much misses the mark entirely, so much so that at the time of writing the video has 4 million dislikes to 1.4 million likes.

It is odd though that some of the bigger YouTubers were not participating this year.

Google Singapore's head of communications, Ms Angeline Leow, said YouTube is a platform for Singaporeans to be entertained and to express themselves.
