YouTube cancels its annual trend-recap video ’Rewind’ for 2020

For the first time in a decade, YouTube said it was ’taking a break’ and is cancelling its annual YouTube Rewind video for this year. Rewind, which recaps the year’s trends with clips by online stars and influencers, has been immensely popular on the video-sharing and -streaming platform. It drew hundreds of millions of viewers every year for the last nine years since it was introduced.

If they were to make a 2020 rewind with the trends of YouTube this year... Probably every single advertiser would go poof

It's kind of their fault for purging all the popular videos on their own platform... Maybe, don't do that and you might have something to be proud of.

Companies trying to join the culture they host, feels a lot like a parent trying to be cool with their teenager and their peers.

Lol are we pretending anybody likes rewind? It's popular for being hated. It consistently steps the record for most disliked video, year after year.
