Top 10 Worst Things About YouTube Rewind 2018

The YouTube Rewind is a tradition that started in 2010 as a celebration of the platform's creators, trends, and viral moments. The goal was simple: to encapsulate a year's worth of digital culture into a single, digestible video. However, over the years, the balance between what viewers wanted and what YouTube presented began to falter. The pendulum reached its peak swing in 2018, resulting in a rewind that drew more flak than festivities.

What was it that left viewers all over the globe scratching their heads, clicking on the dislike button, and typing out their grievances in the comments section? Was it the overload of celebrity cameos? The apparent disregard for the platform's actual top creators? Or perhaps it was the forced and cringe-worthy attempts at capturing trending memes and events?
The Top Ten
1 Lack of Pewdiepie

Rewind 2018 is now officially the most disliked video on YouTube, and only needs 50,000 more to reach 10 million!

I have a feeling that YouTube is promoting T-Series on purpose.

YouTube is what it is, cause of how popular Pewdiepie has become.

2 Fortnite

Why did they have to center this overrated game front and center in the rewind? They should reference Overwatch or Super Smash Bros Ultimate next rewind.

This will probably have a movie made by Disney instead of Five Nights at Freddy's: The Movie. Make that and not Fortnite: The Movie.

I would've done better if they could've just left it out of there. But it was so popular this year, I have no words. The end!

3 BTS BTS, also known as the Bangtan Boys, is a seven-member South Korean boy band formed in Seoul in 2013. RM is the leader and the other members are V, Jimin, Jin, Suga, J-Hope, and Jungkook

How are these guys even popular, they've barely got personality, and you can't really distinguish their singing.

4 Ninja on the Battle Bus

The f you say to me, you little sh.

5 Most of them are not in YouTube!
6 K-Pop

It would be okay if K-pop videos got more views than usual and it impacted YT, or it was called "music rewind 2018".

K-Pop seriously needs to go away. Fast.

Although I like some Kpop, what does it have to do with YouTube? YT just added it to be "trendy".

7 No MrBeast
8 No Lil Meerkat appearance

Lil Meerkat would have still been better than Will Smith. At least he is actually on YouTube.

Lil Meerkat is great.

9 No Relevant Memes

There was, but it needed more.

10 Mukbang
The Contenders
11 Scenes were unrelated to each other
12 The ASMR Part

Let's just say it seemed to be rushed.

13 Baby Shark - Pinkfong

Most annoying kids' song ever! Even "It's a Small World" is more tolerable than this song!

They added a kids' sing-along song in this rewind, that is just sad.

Baby shark doo doo.

14 Bongo Cat

Why did you drag poor Bongo Cat into this, YouTube?

15 Mason Ramsey
16 Will Smith

"Guys we just got Will Smith, this is huge, what should we make him do? "

"Uh make him say Fortnite"

Yaaah, It's Rewind time!
You know, if I could control Rewind, I would want Fortnite and Mark-ass Brownlee.

17 No Pewdiepie vs. T-Series
18 Poor reference to World Cup

Wait...they referenced the World Cup in it?

The World Cup was involved?

19 No Dimash Kudaibergen

Guys please note I am a human and this is triggering for me. He wasn't in YT this year. He's a great singer and has done many nice humanitarian and charitable causes.

20 No Stephen Hillenburg tribute
21 Lele Pons

Tries too hard to be funny.

22 Jaiden Animations

Why did Youtube allow this jerk on Rewind? She ruined it.

She ruined the whole thing.

23 John Oliver John William Oliver is an English comedian, writer, producer, political commentator, actor, and television host. Oliver started his career as a stand-up comedian, both in the United Kingdom and United States.

This guy is so obnoxious! Trevor Noah is really bad, too.
