After a hilarious debacle previous year which saw Rewind 2018 becoming the site's most disliked video ever, YouTube is taking pains to do something different this time around. Makes sense as he acquired his first million followers within 28 days of launching his channel! The video has received 1.3 million thumbs up. The video options the most-viewed and most-liked movies throughout a number of classes and looks like a listicle. But that doesn't mean people enjoyed it.
If you want to see how all the trends are changing, check out Rewind. "Because you're better at this than we are", and if we're being honest, you can tell they are not in a good mood. From Ariana Grande's 7 Rings to Billie Eilish's Bad Guy, several hit tracks of the year complemented the video. "Your nosedive in quality is very disappointing". "There's more to creating than numbers!"
The Reason for the dislike: YouTube left out some of the most prominent celebrities in the 2018 rendition. This YouTube Rewind 2019 video has already garnered a lot of attention online.
But in 2019 Kjellberg was listed as YouTube's most-viewed creator, and had its second most-viewed video, in which he married his longtime girlfriend. Not a good message to promote. But come on, how can you interpret this as anything other than a salty AF?
A user on micro-blogging site wrote, "yeah no responding to criticism by making a shitty top 10 list doesn't make things better #YouTubeRewind". It's understandable why YouTube wouldn't recognize Etika, but it still upset some. Even YouTube CEO Susan Wojcicki said her kids used the word to describe it to her. Drama is how we remember the years naturally because it's pulled real emotion from us.
Every year, YouTube releases a rewind video, highlighting some of the biggest trends and viral videos that graced the platform that year. Allocca and his team are still anxious that viewers will respond negatively to it, taking to YouTube to post their own versions of YouTube Rewind that insult the official version.
