The virtual world is a huge place. One can find anything (what YouTube calls the A to Z) hidden in the intricate web that make the internet. That, probably, is exactly what the folks at YouTube thought about when they started to make a video for the online video sharing platform's 10th anniversary.
It begins with A for animals - for the insane number of cats and dogs and even pet parrot videos which have been uploaded, to beauty - as redefined by bloggers, C for the covers of popular musical numbers to the D of dance. In the same countdown Red Bull Stratos (E, as in Epic), Psy (G for Gangnam Style), Jimmy Kimmel (J, obviously), memes (because there has been too many of them recently), time-lapses and so on. The most nostalgic - for those who know - is Z for Zoo, which featured a glimpse of the first ever video posted on YouTube - all of 18 seconds, but a glimpse of what was to come.
While much of the content for the A to Z video, itself had gone viral, the current video, uploaded on May 28, has got over nine million likes on YouTube. Meanwhile, YouTube had also conducted a poll to ask viewers to choose from the top 20 ads from the last 10 years on YouTube.
