Happy Birthday YouTube

So, Youtube turns 5. Kinda weird, isn’t it? I mean here is a phenomenon that took the world by storm. Another example of a great idea that goes “viral”, and nets it’s creators 1.65 BILLION dollars. Yeah, that was BILLION. But why is that? Because in this world of instant gratification,  Youtube was the firstest with the mostest. Simplify the upload of videos on any subject, and make it available to the masses. About as simple as it gets. Not really, but the theory is.

Let’s think about this. Youtube is “America’s Funniest Home Videos” and virtually any how to video wrapped up in one. Throw in gross out video’s, “Punked” videos and MTV, and what’s not to like.  When was the last time you saw this one?

That’s right, the first video on MTV. How prophetic.

My favorite are the Star Wars nerds dancing in costume. Something about Darth Vader doing MC Hammer just cracks me up everytime

So what’s the most watched video? Well before you watch, pay attention to the bottom of the video

Just when you thought they couldn’t make anymore money than they did. Guess again. To me though, it doesn’t matter, it’s just plain fun.
