Its Been 10 Years Since The First Video Was Uploaded To YouTube, And Here It Is

April 23rd, 2005 at 8:27 p.m. history was made: the first video was uploaded to YouTube.

Now, just ten years after, people are looking back to YouTube‘s foundation.

Jawed Karim, a YouTube cofounder, uploaded the 1st YouTube video, titled: Me at the zoo.

It was shot by his high school buddy Yakov Lapitsky, and it features Jawed on camera, talking about how great elephants are.

It is an 18-second video, of quality that is terrible, and it is not actually about anything. That video appears to have paved the way for all of the future uploads of YouTube. Check it out:

See? Not much different than all the videos that came after it.

Speaking of all the videos that came after it…

Here is every single other video (or only several choice ones or whatever) that was uploaded to YouTube since that first one:
