YouTube Rewind 2018 Video Disliked By The Masses
It's that time of year again!
And no, we're not referring to holiday festivities or end-of-year parties.
We're talking about the release of YouTube's annual YouTube Rewind video.
Every year the video-sharing platform creates a recap of the most popular videos of the year. It includes homages to viral videos (i.e. the "Kiki Challenge"), notable events and popular songs of the past twelve months.

Hit or miss
The video is missing a lot of key "YouTube-relevant" events that took place in 2018. Naturally, fans are annoyed that a number of their favorite creators have been left out.
Despite being so disliked YouTube Rewind 2018 is still the Number One trending video on YouTube.
But some Netizens aren't afraid to point out the obvious (and the true purpose of the YouTube Rewind video)...
#YouTubeRewind is not deserving of the millions of dislikes it's receiving. I don't know why people expect what is basically promotional material for the website to cover drama, tension and controversy. It has ALWAYS been entirely optimistic. Don't jump on bandwagons.
