There's all kinds of weird and wonderful content on YouTube - some of it is informative, other bits are funny, while most of it is just downright strange.

But you'd probably be a little surprised to find out that YouTube's most disliked video is now one that actually comes from YouTube itself.

After the YouTube Rewind 2018 video dropped, the BBC reports, it rapidly became the video-sharing website's most disliked clip - and it achieved this feat in just SIX DAYS. Ouch.

Celebrating the 'videos, people, music and moments that defined 2018', the video features a long list of people, including (take a deep breath, and prepare yourself for combinations of words you never even knew could exist): 10Ocupados, Adam Rippon, Afros e Afins por NátalyNeri, Alisha Marie, Ami Rodriguez, Anwar Jibawi, AsapSCIENCE, AuthenticGames, BB Ki Vines, Bearhug, Bie The Ska, Bilingirl Chika, Bokyem TV, CajuTV, Casey Neistat, Caspar, Cherrygumms, Collins Key, Dagi Bee, Desimpedidos, Diva Depressão, Dolan Twins, Domics, Dotty TV, Elle Mills, Emma Chamberlain, Enes Batur, EnjoyPhoenix, EroldStory, FAP TV, FavijTV, Fischer's, Furious Jumper, Gabbie Hanna, GamingWithKev, GEN HALILINTAR, Gongdaesang, Gymvirtual, Hannah Stocking, HikakinTV, How Ridiculous, Illymation, ItsFunneh, JaidenAnimations, James Charles, John Oliver, Jordindian, Jubilee Media, JukiLop, Julioprofe, Katya Zamolodchikova, Kaykai Salaider, Kelly MissesVlog, Krystal Yam & family, LA LATA, Lachlan, LaurDIY, Lele Pons, Life Noggin, Lilly Singh, Liza Koshy, LosPolinesios, Lucas the Spider, Luisito Comunica (Rey Palomo), Luzu,Lyna, Manual do Mundo, Markiplier, Marques Brownlee, Marshmello, Mason Ramsey, Me Poupe!, Merrell Twins, Michael Dapaah,MissRemiAshten,Mmoshaya, Molly Burke, Ms Yeah, Muro Pequeno, Nick Eh 30, NikkieTutorials, Ninja, Noor Stars, Pautips,Pinkfong Baby Shark, Pozzi, Primitive Technology, RobleisIUTU, Rosanna Pansino, Rudy Mancuso, Safiya Nygaard, Sam Tsui,SamHarveyUK, SHALOM BLAC, Simone Giertz, Skinnyindonesian24, Sofia Castro, StrayRogue and DitzyFlama (Bongo Cat), Swoozie,Tabbes, Technical Guruji, The Try Guys, TheKateClapp, TheOdd1sOut, Tiền Zombie v4, Trevor Noah, Trixie Mattel, Wengie,WhinderssonNunes, Will Smith, Yammy and Yes Theory.


Even though there are A LOT of names in the video, many people were left reeling from the absence of PewDiePie ("We want PewDiePie, IT'S THAT SIMPLE!", "No Pewd??!" etc.), while others simply commented to say they didn't recognise any of the so-called stars.


"I recognised like only 5-6 people," one person wrote.

"Who the HELL are these people?!?" another asked.

"This video is absolute trash, I recognise barely any creators," a third said.

"But where are the YouTubers?" someone else joked.

Many other people just straight-up hated the video itself, referring it to the 'visual definition of cringe' and 'out of touch' with YouTube's audience - criticising it for ignoring the most significant web-culture events of the last year and some of the site's top performers (Logan Paul, PewDiePie and co).

One person said: "I will never have those eight minutes and 13 seconds back."

Another wrote: "If there's one thing that will bring people together, it's hating this video."

Someone else said they were impressed YouTube managed to 'make it worse every year', while YouTuber Marques Brownlee said Rewind has 'turned into a giant ad for YouTube'.

Ooooof. Don't hold back, guys...
