Local content tops trend list for YouTube S'pore

People aren’t happy about the star featuring at the expense of You Tubers People aren’t happy about the star featuring at the expense of You Tubers

This year is no different - YouTube recently released "YouTube Rewind 2018: Everyone Controls Rewind" featuring references to events such as the royal wedding of Prince Henry and Meghan Markle, the 2018 FIFA World Cup, the video game Fortnight and even the Walmart yodeling boy.

Sitting around a campfire, the YouTubers highlight channels who discussed mental health and other sensitive topics.

"It's how many reaction videos have been created". But none of these show up in YouTube Rewind 2018.

According to YouTube's year-end analysis of Singapore's video trends, we seem to be really, really patriotic people.

Parents everywhere are probably sick of hearing Johnny Johnny Yes Papa or Baby Shark but it's undeniable that both childrens' songs took over YouTube in 2018. Some music stars made the list as well, such as Paul McCartney's "Carpool Karaoke" segment in Liverpool, the Walmart yodelling kid and the first reveal of Cable from Deadpool 2. They did manage to shine a spotlight in the surge in popularity for K-Pop and groups like BTS who broke YouTube streaming records in 2018.

The trailer of the Deadpool sequel earned the number six spot on the YouTube Rewind list.

Fortnite also struck it big in 2018, there's no doubt about that, and of course, YouTube Rewind hangs heavily off of the dick of that trend with the video being nearly 60% Fortnite-themed, from the battle bus to Fortnite Dances. Paul was not included in YouTube's end-of-the-year video, either. Admittedly, the list of creators featured in the video was small compared with the Rewinds of years' past, and the absence of some was felt keenly, if the video's dislike ratio and the comments section is anything to go by. There were also eight channels that hit a million subscribers, including JianHao Tan, which has garnered more than two million subscribers. Making the rewind confusioning, by "Making them make the rewind." like, jt makes 2017 look good.

However, the platform is under fire for a yearly overview that many say doesn't represent the large portion of content and engagement on YouTube.
