I recognized less than ten things in this whole video.
Three YouTube stars, although I could only tell you the name of one – Philip DeFranco.
One song, “Shape of You” I think it’s called. Two if you count the thirty seconds of Smashmouth’s “All Star.”
And two trends, if you count the reference to the solar eclipse a “trend.” So, wait, I guess that’s actually an “event,” not a trend. One trend: fidget spinners. I mean, I get the “floor is lava” thing, but I don’t know as it was a big deal on YouTube? Do they not do just cool YouTube stuff in the Rewind anymore?
Also Stephen Colbert’s in there, but everyone knows him and not from YouTube, so I’m not sure he counts.
I think this means I’m officially old now. Or it might mean that this year’s YouTube Rewind wasn’t that great. Could go either way, really.
