Well... it's pretty safe to suggest that YouTube Rewind 2018 is controversial. The annual video published by the Google-owned service pays homage to the year that was and the moments that made it, all created by the internet's biggest personalities.
This year’s theme was “everyone controls rewind” and, well, it had its highs and lows.
For one, animation YouTubers Domics, JaidenAnimations and Illymation among others got their time in the spotlight.
Two South African-born creators/personalities also feature in Caspar Lee and Trevor Noah. But that’s where the joy seemingly ends.
On the face of it, the clip opens with Will Smith being Will Smith, features a shoehorned K-pop moment from BTS, a Fortnite homage, an ode to “In My Feelings”, and monologues focusing on 2018’s biggest political talking points.
