The A-Z Of YouTube

It's been ten years this week since YouTube first launched in beta on the great wide internet, and unknowingly changed the world forever. And if you've been around the site long enough, you'll know that it's so much more than pretty white vloggers doing challenges; it's a vast, expanding hub for all kinds of creativity, where over 300 hours of video are uploaded to the site per minute.

Set to the iconic "Alphabet Aerobics" by Blackalicious, the animatic video fires through an alphabetic list of everything YouTube, taking a couple of liberties but never failing to make you react like a teen in a Fine Bros video. Check it out:
