YouTube Rewind 2018, The Most Disliked Video of All Time

Okay, we know this might be an odd thing to write a blog about but honestly… WE’RE STOKED! It’s not every day you get to call home to mom and say what you helped create made it into the Guinness Book of World Records

YouTube Rewind 2018: Everyone Controls Rewind hit 30 million views within the first 24 hours. Now that is impressive, but it doesn’t stop there! Since its release, the video has racked up over 160 million views and 15 million dislikes, dethroning Justin Bieber’s Baby Music Video from the top ‘disliked’ spot. While it took Bieber’s video approximately eight years to rack up that dislike count, YouTube Rewind beat it in under eight days! We’re thinking of getting a plaque made for the office.

Rewind, which hit #1 on trending, also made a big impact with —

Although the video wears the crown of the ‘most disliked video of all time’ we couldn’t be more proud of our team, our collaborators at Portal A and the video itself. We came, we saw and we conquered that ‘dislike’ mountain. Bubba’s… OUT!
