YouTube Rewind 2018 sucks, according to A LOT of fans

Every year, YouTube recaps the highlights of the year with a Rewind video, which features the biggest moments and memes as presented by the most popular YouTube creators.

This year was marked by surprising celebrity moments.

YouTube Rewind is culturally significant because it serves as a compressed view of the year from the perspective of a global Internet user. "We asked some of YouTube's biggest names to tell us what they wanted to see if they controlled Rewind".

Numerous most memorable people and moments were left out of YouTube Rewind 2018. (Seriously, is it "Yanny" or "Laurel"?) India comedy sensation Amit Bhadana amassed an astounding 11 million subscribers in just one year and Lâm Chấn Khang's two-hour musical comedy set in the criminal underworld amassed more than 60 million views. But none of these show up in YouTube Rewind 2018. 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.

Parents everywhere are probably sick of hearing Johnny Johnny Yes Papa or Baby Shark but it's undeniable that both childrens' songs took over YouTube in 2018.

Even the Walmart yodel boy makes an appearance! They did manage to shine a spotlight in the surge in popularity for K-Pop and groups like BTS who broke YouTube streaming records in 2018.

Was this in YouTube Rewind? Paul was not included in YouTube's end-of-the-year video, either. See the full list of YouTube's top trending videos and music videos in Canada below.

An episode of James Corden's Carpool Karaoke gained the number four spot on the YouTube Rewind list.

Anyway, YouTube is happy to report that local YouTubers had their subscribers double in count, with a total of eight local channel having more than a million subscribers each.

Billed by the participants as "the biggest YouTube event in history", there's no denying that this fight dominated headlines this year.
