Bottom line: YouTube's annual rewind is one of the highlights of the year in review season.
If you've checked any of the videos in the Trending tab in the past three or four months, you'll probably recognize at least a few of the names: Ninja, the Try Guys, Lilly Singh, Liza Koshy, Safiya Nygaard, Marques Brownlee...
The videos are usually popular with fans of the popular site, mixing some of the most popular YouTubers with references to pop culture, social media and more while giving watchers a glimpse into the year and the topics and stars that people were talking about.
Perhaps the person most upset by this year's video was Lachlan Power, who revealed that he flew 15 hours from Australia to take part in YouTube Rewind, only to find out that he had been cut from the video entirely when it was released. YouTube is celebrating its biggest creators with a collaborative video featuring over a hundred vloggers in YouTube Rewind. Though the top video on the non-music list was Kylie Jenner's admittedly adorable "To Our Daughter". If the whole video had been about that, I'd have been okay with it - but I get it, that's not what Rewind is generally about.
With 2018 coming to an end, YouTube gathers its best and mixes them with the top moments and gives us a Rewind.
