YouTube Rewind 2018 Recaps the Year in Viral Videos, Memes, and Trends

People aren’t happy about the star featuring at the expense of You Tubers

Australian YouTuber Lachlan tweeted: 'Why in Will Smith's imagination of Rewind did I get all my lines and screen time cut? 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. Many of these locally produced videos offer new perspectives to topics that are important to Singaporeans, it added.

In January, YouTube received backlash after vlogger Logan Paul published a video in which he reacted to a dead body found in Japan's Aokigahara forest.

This puts it on track to beat last year's Rewind in terms of dislikes already - it's just 200k behind already and is now the 16th most disliked YouTube video of all-time.

YouTube Rewind 2018 is a mashup of the year's most viral YouTube video, and can be viewed on a web or mobile browser, as well as on the YouTube mobile app.

YouTube Rewind 2018 is upon us and once again people are not happy. With the power of rewind, he takes a school bus on a wild adventure.

He received a $4.6 million signing bonus from the A's with the expectation that this would be his last season on the gridiron. The past five winners of the Walter Camp Award won the Heisman, while the past four Maxwell winners did the same.

Emerging and well-known YouTube stars also showed up in a big way in the year's "Top Trending Videos" list. Realistically, with the ridiculous size of the YouTube user base, the Rewind was never going to please everyone, but this has stopped people expressing their dissatisfaction.

While YouTube's Rewind is disappointing we are trembling in anticipation for the responses from other creators such as videogamedunkey who made his own rewind for 2016.

The YouTube community in Singapore continued growing this year, with more creators joining the platform.

Everyone Controls Rewind, which was uploaded on 6 December, already stands as the second most disliked YouTube video ever, with more than 4 and a half million dislikes.

Google Singapore's head of communications, Ms Angeline Leow, said YouTube is a platform for Singaporeans to be entertained and to express themselves.
