The Youtube Rewind annual tradition began in 2010, and this year's video is the longest one to date.

The video does kind of steamroll past its most important point: about midway through the video, several YouTubers stop and give credit to other creators who have raised money for charity or education, and to spotlight creators who give voice to oft-overlooked communities, such as drag or single mothers.

Number 10 on the list are highlights from the 2018 US Open, where Serena Williams has a heated exchange with umpire Carlos Ramos. "'Cause 2018 YouTube REWIND will surpass it in the next 12 hours!" The video shows the Eh Bee family compete in a Fortnite dance off. YouTubers that most people don't know or care about.

YouTube Rewind is YouTube's attempt at looking back at the past year on the platform.

The video is six minutes long and has racked up 46,340,306 views and Dobrik and Koshy explain why they've chose to part ways.

The video also never addresses some of the major issues with the platform, we haven't forgotten about the Logan Paul fiasco and the fact that The Thinning 2 was eventually released. This year's list skewed toward professional creators, with one YouTube original mixed in. Last year's clip was viewed more than 200 million times, and the newest installment, created again by digital content studio Portal A, is off to a tire-squealing start with almost 5 million views in its first two hours. "She is already building on a significant base of interests in her posts", said Brindle.
