We are officially in the annual period of recap overload. We will incessantly recap and rank things about the previous year as we await January 1, 2018. YouTube has just released its annual YouTube Rewind video recapping the videos, people, music, and memes that made 2017. Who can forget Despacito, Fidget Spinners, Salt Bae, Ed Sheeran, eclipse glasses, “Humble”, and Marshmello?

You can see the “anonymous” DJ throughout the video, demonstrating how completely mello has dominated pop-culture and dance music in 2017. Check out the full video above.
