Watch all the highlights of 2018 with YouTube Rewind

The video does kind of steamroll past its most important point: about midway through the video, several YouTubers stop and give credit to other creators who have raised money for charity or education, and to spotlight creators who give voice to oft-overlooked communities, such as drag or single mothers. The decision is an especially strong stance, considering Kjellberg is the No. 1 YouTuber, with more than 74.8 million subscribers. Of course, 2018 began with the Logan Paul Suicide Forest controversy (despite the video being uploaded in December 2017) which caused advertisers to become a little wary of the platform, but then we also had Shane Dawson's incredible comeback.

The trailer of the Deadpool sequel earned the number six spot on the YouTube Rewind list.

One of the most viral moments this year was the video of an 11-year-old boy yodeling in Walmart.

YouTube Rewind 2018 was pure hot garbage.

The 23-minute long episode Corden visited Liverpool with Paul McCartney and together they explored the city where McCartney grew up. In past years, the list mixed viral videos with clips from shows like "The Late Late Show".

Embassy in Costa Rica and the Federal Bureau of Investigation are also assisting with the case, Stefaniak's family said. Overnight her family posted on Facebook that they were finally allowed to view the body and confirmed that it was her.


The video, created by AsapSCIENCE, explains the science behind "Yanny" or "Laurel" debate. Admittedly, the list of creators featured in the video was small compared with the Rewinds of years' past, and the absence of some was felt keenly, if the video's dislike ratio and the comments section is anything to go by.

YouTube Singapore said the growing trend towards local content over the past three editions of YouTube Rewind reflects the importance for videos to connect with local sentiments.

There was unfortunately no place for PewDiePie, who fans had been campaigning to open the video with a clap to correspond with his Meme Review show and simply state "Year Review".

While the Google-owned video platform's recap is always a bit of a cameo cacophony, there's typically a theme that runs as a thread through the whole thing.

"Kylie Jenner has this awesome social media presence".
