iFixit has finally published their teardown of the Galaxy Fold, and I really don’t think anyone’s going to be surprised by anything here.

Surprise, baby: It’s YouTube Rewind 2018!

In 2018, you danced your heart out to Drake, yodeled in Walmart, and played a lot of Fortnite. As we prepare to head into 2019, it’s time for our annual look back at the year that was in video and the trends that you made possible.

This year was marked by surprising celebrity moments. In February, Kylie Jenner surprised the world with “To Our Daughter,” an 11-minute film detailing her pregnancy and the birth of baby Stormi, which was watched over 53 million times on its way to becoming YouTube’s global #1 Top Trending Video of 2018. Will Smith vlogged all over the world. Oh, and he also jumped out of a helicopter over the Grand Canyon on a dare. Rihanna started her own “Tutorial Tuesdays” makeup series. And, of course, Beyoncé’s livestream from Coachella took #Beychella worldwide.

Emerging and well-known YouTube stars also showed up in a big way in the year’s “Top Trending Videos” list. Liza and David shared the news of their breakup through tears and laughter, the guys from Dude Perfect somehow perfectly tossed bread into a toaster, and AsapSCIENCE once again solved the Internet’s latest mystery. (Seriously, is it “Yanny” or “Laurel”?) India comedy sensation Amit Bhadana amassed an astounding 11 million subscribers in just one year and Lâm Chấn Khang’s two-hour musical comedy set in the criminal underworld amassed more than 60 million views.

With more than 673 million collective views, these were the moments that had you watching, commenting and sharing in 2018:

It’s also time for our annual Rewind mashup video. But rather than trying to sum up 2018’s biggest memes, personalities, and hit videos ourselves, we tried something different this time around. We asked some of YouTube’s biggest names to tell us what they wanted to see if they controlled Rewind.

Check out the full video below and head over to our Rewind site to get to know the creators and artists who shaped popular culture in 2018.

Kevin Allocca, Head of Culture & Trends, and the YouTube Rewind team, recently watched “YouTube Rewind 2018: Everyone Controls Rewind.”
