Today, the YouTube Rewind for 2018 came out. And it was nothing but 8 minutes of pandering.
I don't know if this is better or worse than the 2017 Rewind.
It has Fortnite (obviously), but barely any Fortnite content-creators except Ninja. It also has K-pop, the Royal Wedding, Bongo Cat, Baby Shark, In My Feelings, and Yodeling Kid. What does the Royal Wedding have to do with YouTube? Also, there's a segment where some irrelevant YouTubers are sitting around the campfire talking about representation and stuff, which felt unneeded and shoehorned by YT to earn social brownie points.
I knew almost none of the people in it except for Ninja, Yodeling Kid, Will Smith, and some of the animators such as TheOdd1sOut and Jaiden Animations.
Because of YouTube's hatred of animation, Jaiden Animations actually got a lot of her scenes cut out. I'm not kidding.
Why did they include baby shark? No one over the age of 6 likes that song. The Fortnite dances were kinda cringey. If you ask me, they should have put PewDiePie vs T-Series and KSI vs Logan Paul. Those were some actual highlights from the year.
Anyways, that concludes my rant on YT Rewind 2018.
