According to this video uploaded by YouTube. YouTube has been nothing but a contest to find the best video, and the 8-year-long submission period is finally closing tonight.
As YouTube’s “competition director” Tim Liston — a person who appears to be as fictional as his title — tells us, YouTube will go dark for a decade to give thousands of judges 10 years to go through all the uploaded videos and declare one winner, which will be the only video on the site when YouTube relaunches in 2023.
What’s even more hilarious in the video than the basic gag behind it is some great cameos by YouTube celebrities like Matt Harding, iJustine, the (now much older) kids from “Charlie Bit My Finger” and that “Evolution of Dance” guy.
“I encourage everybody to watch as many videos as possible before YouTube deletes everything tonight,” Antoine Dodson warns.
