Happy birthday, YouTube! Ten years young today. You’ve come a long way since ‘Me at the zoo’ – your first furore with video content. To date it’s received 19.6m views, but we’re not convinced it’s due to its content, more the fact it was your first post and a historic moment.
From humble but transformative beginnings, you have acquired over a billion users, with over 300 hours of video uploaded to your site every minute. Now ranked the second largest search engine, after Google, you’ve provided us with hours of comedy gold.
A quick poll at JAM towers has revealed our top five YouTube classics:
5) Munchkin the Shih Tzu Teddy Bear
4) Pack Of Pug Puppies Pile On Top Of Russian Man
3) 73 Questions with Victoria Beckham Vogue – Spoof
To celebrate your big day, we’ve popped a little info-graphic together on your greatness, courtesy of JAM Creative. Enjoy!
And on the theme of birthdays, our exceptionally talented designer, Richard Pay, today celebrates four years with JAM Creative. Happy fourth work anniversary, Rich!
