Ten years ago this week a website designed to allow people to upload their own video content was created, called YouTube.
Now it’s hard to think of the world before such a website existed, where everyday people can now become an online celebrity.
On April 23, 2005, the first video was uploaded to this new YouTube site. It’s not as creative or complex as some of the videos you see now.
Instead it’s an 18-second video of someone in front of elephants at a zoo, where he talks about them having “really, really, really long trunks.”
To date, the video has over 21 million views.
