What could possibly make this year’s YouTube Rewind better than the last? Two words. The Rock.
YouTube Rewind 2016 is finally here, folks, and all of your favorite creators are back to recap this year’s hottest videos and challenges.
Based on views, shares, comments, likes, and more, YouTube compiled the top 10 trending videos and music videos of 2016 to create one epic mash-up representing what crazy things the Internet obsessed over in the past year.
Here’s the original video from the YouTube Spotlight channel:
Before showcasing your favorite creators, the video opens with Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson wearing a sweet, red fanny pack that holds the oh so important rewind button. Throughout the video, creators are seen searching for rewind buttons, taking part in some this years biggest challenges – the running man, the water bottle flip thingy – and of course, singing along to Fifth Harmony’s “Work from Home” featuring Ty Dolla $ign, The Chainsmokers’ “Closer” featuring Halsey, and Justin Bieber’s “Sorry” in a carpool karaoke with James Corden.
Though some of us here at What’s Trending liked the video, both creators and fans have shared mixed reviews via Twitter. Here are some of their responses:
It looks like some creators are still too mad at YouTube over subscription issues to care about the new video.
