YouTube Cancels Annual Rewind For 2020

Looks like it is not just you who needs to forget about 2020. The traditional YouTube Rewind 2020 is canceled. Seems like this year is something we all want to erase from our memories. YouTube’s best come together each year for the Rewind but this year, YouTube decided we’re better off without rewinding. Unsurprisingly, it’s yet another big one that got clapped by the ‘rona.

The announcement was made just one day after the platform suffered a worldwide failure (you can read more about that here). The company tweeted about how they feel about the whole situation. The message stated that rewind is a means of celebration, but that it feels somewhat toxic to celebrate this year. The world is still in a battle against one of the mightiest enemies and it is no joke.

The reactions are, unsurprisingly, mainly positive. The videos are a time capsule of sorts that often result in a cringe festival. It is not easy to recap a whole year without a dose of embarrassment.

The gods of the digital world heard your voices, Internet, and YouTube Rewind 2020 is canceled. It is hard to believe, but there is actually something to thank the ‘rona for.
