YouTube’s best and brightest have gathered for the annual “YouTube Rewind,” a cheeky year-in-review video that celebrates the trends, stars, and downright weirdest moments in the year of digital video.
This year’s installment played off popular music video trends, from DJ Snake and Lil Jon’s wall-smashing “Turn Down for What” video spoofed by PewDiePie, to Pentatonix and Bethany Mota singing “Let It Go” covers. It also paid tribute to the iconic ALS Ice Bucket Challenge, with various YouTubers splashing each other across time and space. Mainstream media even got in the game, showcasing people like Jimmy Kimmel and Big Bird, whose programs have massive digital footprints as well as TV ones. DJ Earworm, who wows annually with his “United State of Pop” video, provided the musical mashup for the clip.
