YouTube is Now Legally Old Enough To Drink

Can you believe that YouTube has been around since 2005? That’s right, YouTube turned 19 This week. April 23rd, 2005 and it can now legally drink anywhere in Canada. While it came out in 2005, Google purchased it a year later in 2006.

The first video ever uploaded to YouTube was titled “Me at the zoo” and featured co-founder Jawed Karim at the San Diego Zoo. This video may seem simple by today’s standards, but it marked the beginning of a revolution in how we consume and share video content.

In its early days, YouTube was a platform for users to upload and share personal videos. However, it quickly evolved into a hub for all types of content – from music videos and movie trailers to tutorials and vlogs. YouTube became a place where anyone could become a creator and share their voice with the world.

Over the years, YouTube has grown exponentially, with millions of users uploading hundreds of hours of video content every minute. It has become a platform for entertainment, education, and even activism. YouTube has given rise to countless internet celebrities and influencers who have built careers and communities on the platform.

I remember when YouTube was still in its early days. I got my first PC at the age of 10 back in 2006, and I created a YouTube account in 2007, just two years after its debut. It might be one of the oldest YouTube accounts ever made and I still use it to this day! In fact when I was a wee lad, I used to upload videos to my channel. I had anywhere from 200-500 views on average, with a voice over audition as a teenager that hit 20,000 views. I accidently deleted everything though so it’s gone forever.
