We’re proud of you, YouTube.
Just five short years ago you showed up on the scene, ready to provide a platform for average people to express themselves. We watched, awestruck, as new worlds of art and culture opened before us. We laughed, we cried, we cried even more. You held up a mirror to us all, and showed us the raw passion we hold as human beings. You showed us new levels of nuance and symbolism in our entertainment. You gave us hope for humanity.
