The year 2016 has almost drawn to a close and just like Twitter sharing the year’s most famous tweets, trends and hashtags, YouTube too has released their awesome ‘year in rewind’ video. A mashup and recreation of 2016’s most viral moments and videos, ‘YouTube Rewind 2016’ brings over 200 viral stars, vloggers and celebrities together.
Starting with Hollywood actor Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, the video also features television host James Corden, YouTube star Lily Singh, The Slow Mo Guys and more. Even AIB and TVF make it to this video. From PPAP – the Pen Pineapple Apple Pen song – to the Mannequin (and Mannequin Heads) Challenge, workout videos, makeup tutorials, to all the songs we loved in 2016, the video features all that more.
This year’s video showcases almost everything that trended this year from Pokemon Go, Google Pixel phone, videos on the hydraulic press crushing every random object one could think of, rainbow bagels, the rotating corn challenge, videos on Orbeez – colorful tiny balls that grow in water – mannequin challenge, PPAP, the water bottle flip, the dab, and much much more. Do not blink while watching this one. The soundtrack has been created by Major Lazer, who has mashed up the biggest hits by Justin Bieber, Fifth Harmony, The Chainsmokers and Ghost Town DJs.
