YouTube Rewind is culturally significant because it serves as a compressed view of the year from the perspective of a global Internet user.

The video does kind of steamroll past its most important point: about midway through the video, several YouTubers stop and give credit to other creators who have raised money for charity or education, and to spotlight creators who give voice to oft-overlooked communities, such as drag or single mothers.

The number one video on YouTube's Rewind list for 2018 is a video from Kylie Jenner which recounts special moments about her pregnancy with daughter Stormi Webster.

The annual wince festival, YouTube Rewind, which showcases all of the "best" moments and biggest trends of YouTube from the past year, has been and gone once again.

In 2017, Disney dropped YouTube vlogger Felix Kjellberg, known as "PewDiePie", from its collection of YouTube channels called Maker Studios. It's not all lollipops and rainbows, the video even jokes about "Let's read the comments" something people know to avoid when on YouTube. But none of these show up in YouTube Rewind 2018.

"We were there watching the YouTube live stream - there was 11 million people concurrently watching the live stream - and then we went on to re-watching".

Former Oakland University Star Kay Felder Arrested For Allegedly Choking A Woman
National Basketball Association point guard Kay Felder has been arrested for assaulting and choking a woman according to TMZ . Felder allegedly choked a longtime female acquaintance following an argument during dinner, according to TMZ Sports .

The list also contained its fair share of viral fodder, including the "Yanny/Laurel" video and "Walmart Yodeling Kid".

AsapSCIENCE, "Do You Hear "Yanny" or "Laurel"?"

YouTuber and Drama Alert host Daniel "KEEMSTAR" Keem took note of this disparity and did some research, revealing the video to be on par with one of the most disliked videos in history - the Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare trailer.

The video is six minutes long and has racked up 46,340,306 views and Dobrik and Koshy explain why they've made a decision to part ways.

What gets me though, is that this year it seems to dig up faces that haven't been overly relevant on the platform in the past year, like Casey Neistat, Lilly Singh, and Caspar Lee.

"Kylie Jenner has this incredible social media presence".

At time of publication, the video has a staggering 2.2 million dislikes-more than double the 1 million likes it's garnered.
