YouTube is Shutting Down Until 2023? WTF? [VIDEO]
Well today is "April Fools' Day" and it is not only celebrated in the states but is also celebrated in many countries on April 1 every year. Sometimes referred to as "All Fools' Day", April 1 is not a national holiday, but is widely recognized and celebrated as a day when people play practical jokes and hoaxes on each other.
YouTube decided that would get us all in a mass practical joke, so they decided to celebrate April Fools' Day with a fake contest. They posted a video yesterday explaining that YouTube is "Shutting Down" until 2023, so they can watch every video that's been uploaded and pick a winner.
About half of the video consists of different YouTube celebrities like the "Bed Intruder" guy and the "David After Dentist" kid talking about how much they want to win. Obviously, the whole thing is just a joke.
