YouTube is aware of the dismal failure that YouTube Rewind was last year, being the most disliked video in YouTube history with 17.05 mil dislikes. YouTube Rewind is a video series produced by YouTube and Portal A Interactive. The videos act as an overview and recap of the year’s most viral videos, events, trends, memes, and music.
Released on December 5th, YouTube Rewind 2019 seems to be off to a better start than its previous episode. That being said, at the time of writing this article (11 hours after the video was posted on YouTube), the video has already garnered an appalling 1.9 mil dislikes and only 1 mil likes – putting it at the 24th most disliked video on YouTube, trailing closely after YouTube Rewind 2017 as the 19th most disliked YouTube video with 2.25 mil dislikes.
It is quite a feat that YouTube has made 3 of the most disliked YouTube videos in the past 3 years. The only other channel beat YouTube’s streak is Cocomelon – Nursery Rhymes, with 5 videos in the Top 50 most disliked videos on YouTube.
On the bright side, as we enter this period of merriment, YouTube’s constant failure with Rewind has given content creators something to talk about as the year starts winding down and news becomes a little more sparse.
