YouTube Rewind 2014 Is Here And Full Of Ice Buckets, Frozen And Selfies

December 9, 2014 - Written By John Anon

A lot of readers will know about this already, but for those that do not, then it is worth taking a couple of sentences to bring them up to speed. Back in 2010 YouTube started doing their Rewind videos as a means to close out the year. These began as just like a medley of popular videos fused together and highlighting anything that was trending or popular over that year. However, in the small space of time between 2010 and now they have undergone quite the revolution and are quickly becoming an entity on to themselves. More recently, the YouTube Rewind videos have been a mad and fast collection of popular YouTube stars recreating a number of the years big events and trends.

Well, if you haven’t already guessed (or seen it) then it is that time of year. YouTube this morning unleashed their latest Rewind video for this year and it is quite something. The video is as you would expect an extravaganza of memories with both popular YouTube stars like PewDiePie and also a collection of TV stars like John Oliver and Jimmy Kimmel. Actually, the line-up (and general presentation) is not that different to what was on offer last year in the YouTube ‘What Does 2013 Say?’, That said, it is here, it is great and deserves a watch.

To give you a quick rundown the video does include a lot of stuff that will make you think, oh right yeah I remember that. Like for instance, the Ice Bucket Challenge, selfies, Frozen and that weird video with the two people who shared their first kiss with the world. Remember that? Again, consistent with last year the soundtrack is pretty sweet as well, with various mash-ups of this year’s most popular songs. For instance, you might be sick of Pharrell Williams’ ‘Happy’ by now, but nevertheless, there can be no denying that it was one of the biggest songs of this year. A few others to namedrop include ‘All About That Bass’ by Meghan Trainor and ‘Let It Go’ from the Frozen soundtrack. All in all, it is a fun look back on everything we liked (and hated) about 2014. So what are you waiting for? Hit play below.
