YouTube is breaking records this week. Unfortunately for them, it’s for being the best at being the worst.
Last week, YouTube came out with their annual edition of YouTube Rewind. And much to their dismay, the response was bad. Really bad. So bad that they took the place of Justin Bieber’s ‘Baby’ as the most disliked video on YouTube.
It’s important to note a few differences between how ‘Baby’ and ‘YouTube Rewind 2018’ have amassed the insane number of dislikes:
- It took a lot longer for Bieber’s Baby to hit close to 10 million dislikes – the video came out almost 8 years ago while Rewind came out 10 days ago
- Baby has over 2 billion views – a much larger number than the 137 million views Youtube Rewind 2018 has garnered
- The likes for Baby still outweigh the dislikes by a small amount – much different than the 2.2 million likes to 12 million dislikes ratio of Rewind
All in all, YouTube has made history with their new cringe-fest of a video. Large creators on the platform have been expressing how the video fails to express what makes YouTube great and Rewind has just become a giant commercial for prospective advertisers.
But I think I know the solution to solve all of their problems… K-Pop!!!
