It was created by three former PayPal employee: Chad Hurley, Steve Chen, and Jawed Karim in February 2005 (12 years ago).
It was intended when the friends had troubles with sharing some of their videos, especially the one of an accident which had occurred at Steve’s mansion, but Karim who didn’t attend the party denied it had occurred.
Karim said, that the inspiration first came from Janet Jackson Super Bowl incident when her breasts were exposed during her performance.

There are actually few ways to gain free youtube subscribers.
YouTube has featured an April Fools prank on the site on April 1 ever since 2008.
In 2008, all the links to the videos on the main page were redirected to Rick Astley’s music video “Never Gonna Give You Up“, a prank known as “Rickrolling”.
In 2009, when clicking on a video on the main page, the whole page turned upside down. YouTube claimed that this was a “new layout”.
In 2010, YouTube temporarily released a “TEXTp” mode, which translated the colors in the videos to random upper case letters. YouTube claimed in a message that this was done in order to reduce bandwidth costs by $1 per second.
In 2011, the site celebrated its “100th anniversary” with a “1911 button” and a range of sepia-toned silent, early 1900s-style films, including “Flugelhorn Feline”, a parody of Keyboard Cat.
In 2012, clicking on the image of a DVD next to the site logo led to a video about “The YouTube Collection”, a purported option to order every YouTube video for home delivery on DVD, videocassette, LaserDisc, or Betamax tapes. The spoof promotional video touted “the complete YouTube experience completely offline.”
In 2013, YouTube teamed up with satirical newspaper company The Onion to claim that the video sharing website was launched as a contest which had finally come to an end, and would announce a winner of the contest when the site went back up in 2023. A video of two presenters announcing the nominees streamed live for twelve hours.
In 2014, YouTube announced that it was responsible for the creation of all viral video trends, and revealed previews of upcoming memes, such as “Clocking”, “Kissing Dad”, and “Glub Glub Water Dance”.
In 2015, YouTube added a music button to the video bar that played samples from “Sandstorm” by Darude. Additionally, when free subscribers searched for a song title, a message would appear saying “Did you mean: Darude – Sandstorm by Darude”.
In 2016, YouTube announced “SnoopaVision Beta”, telling their users that soon they would have the option to watch every video on the platform in 360 degree mode with Snoop Dogg.
The most subscribed channel belongs to PewDiePie – a Swedish video producer mostly known for his Let’s play commentaries and Vlogs.
How many free subscribers has he got would you ask, well the number is astonishing: 54,415,758.
These numbers are crazy just as his net worth: over 20 million $ gained mostly from his YouTube channel.
