YouTube Rewind 2018 Is Now The Most Disliked Video On YouTube

"Trying to capture the magic of YouTube in one single video is like trying to capture lightning in a bottle". The current dislike count is sitting at 10 million, which is more than five times the views that the original Rewind has received in the eight years since its release, in 2010.

Another example would be Felix "Pewdiepie" Kjellberg, whose insensitive and offensive remarks both last year and this year mean his name is probably mud with YouTube, even if he is still their most popular figure.

But regardless, the fact is, the title of the video is "YouTube Rewind".

Marques Brownlee who stars in the 2018 YouTube Rewqind video has created his own video with his thoughts on it, this one if a better watch than the YouTube one. Brownlee argued that "the problem with YouTube pretty simple, actually". For instance, 2012′s video was basically just a dance party to Psy's "Gangnam Style" and Carly Rae Jepsen's "Call Me Maybe".

"Rewind has turned into a giant ad for YouTube", he said.

Some of the most prominent people in this year's "Rewind" were not primarily famous for, well, being on YouTube. The video also includes celebrities like John Oliver, Will Smith and Trevor Noah. The comment section of YouTube Rewind 2018 shows a general response from people pointing out what's wrong with the video.

While "Rewind" did feature some key moments and communities from 2018 - for the first time, there was an extended animation segment, for instance - angry fans criticized the video for leaving out some of the biggest.

Others pointed to the absence of PewDiePie and the Paul brothers.

Other huge YouTube moments from 2018, such as the Logan Paul vs KSI boxing match, were also omitted. For many YouTube stars, the annual video functioned as an ode to the content creators who contributed most to the community that year. Apparently, what YouTube offered wasn't what fans were hoping for.
