  • Watch all the highlights of 2018 with YouTube Rewind

YouTube Singapore also released its second Rising Creators List to highlight emerging producers who have had significant subscriber growth over the past year. With the power of rewind, he takes a school bus on a wild adventure. The YouTube channel touches on issues such as family and personal relationships, and also spotlights stories of inspiring millennials. It seems that this time the video was not that impressive compared to the previous year.

This year's video features over 100 of YouTube's top creators, including Will Smith, LaurDIY, Lele Pons, Rudy Mancuso, Marques Brownlee, James Charles, Casey Neistat, The Dolan Twins, Ninja, Lilly Singh, Emma Chamberlain, Markiplier, Lachlan, WhinderssonNunes, Fischer's, Noor Stars, Pautips, FAP TV and many more are just some of the stars you'll see in the video.

With more than 78,357,371 views, a Canadian family earns the number nine spot on YouTube's Top Trending list for 2018. (Seriously, is it "Yanny" or "Laurel"?) India comedy sensation Amit Bhadana amassed an astounding 11 million subscribers in just one year and Lâm Chấn Khang's two-hour musical comedy set in the criminal underworld amassed more than 60 million views.

If the whole video had been about that, I'd have been okay with it - but I get it, that's not what Rewind is generally about.

Emerging and well-known YouTube stars also showed up in a big way in the year's "Top Trending Videos" list.


In January, YouTube received backlash after vlogger Logan Paul published a video in which he reacted to a dead body found in Japan's Aokigahara forest.

While YouTube began its life as a platform where anyone could upload and share their videos, it has since morphed into a video ecosystem of its own. Paul was not included in YouTube's end-of-the-year video, either.

Google Singapore's head of communications, Ms Angeline Leow, said YouTube is a platform for Singaporeans to be entertained and to express themselves.

At time of publication, the video has a staggering 2.2 million dislikes-more than double the 1 million likes it's garnered.
