YouTube has skipped its iconic yearly ‘YouTube Rewind’ video calling the year 2020 “different”.
The Rewind has been a tradition for the video streaming platform since 2010, where at the end of each year it gives an ode to the viral videos of the past 12 months.
Here’s the official announcement:
The platform made sure to thank all its creators:
“We know that so much of the good that did happen in 2020 was created by all of you. You’ve found ways to lift people up, help them cope, and make them laugh. You made a hard year genuinely better.”
The decision will be a hard one to swallow for YouTube creators, with many dreaming of landing in the coveted video.
