And to watch Lilly Singh dive into a pool of balls. But Lilly Singh has now moved onto her own late-night show, and YouTube also seems to have moved on from making good quality videos. Last year's video was the most disliked video in the history of YouTube. This year, YouTube may outdo itself. If you are into numbers, we're currently at 1.2 million dislikes at the time of writing this. So what went wrong (read: again)? YouTube Rewind 2019 is perhaps … [Read more...] about YouTube Rewind 2019 Seems to Have Outdone Itself in Being Bad, ‘Lazy, and Low Budget’
