Google declares end of YouTube in April Fool’s prank

The best April Fool’s pranks are absurd but also have a kernel of believability at their core just big enough to reel people in.

Youtube had published a video yesterday which turned to be an April fool’s prank, They’ve said that youtube was only a contest to select the best video ever and this is what they’ve announced:

Thanks for all your great entries.
YouTube finally has enough videos to begin selecting a winner.
What do you think is the #bestvideo on YouTube?

We’ve been thrilled with all of the diverse, creative entries we’ve seen so far, and we can’t wait to begin the process of selecting the best video. We’ll be announcing the winner in 10 years.

As YouTube’s “competition director” Tim Liston — a person who appears to be as fictional as his title — tells us, YouTube will go dark for a decade to give thousands of judges 10 years to go through all the uploaded videos and declare one winner, which will be the only video on the site when YouTube relaunches in 2023.

It was a good one and made a lot of people sad to hear that they’re going to be shut down… a billion dollar site shuts down? haha NEVER. :p

Check out their April fool video
