  1. Back when youtube could do it right.

  2. We should make this the most liked video on YouTube just because. 👌🥦

  3. Simply the Best YouTube Rewind! 💚

  4. Not a celebrity or late show host in sight.

  5. 1:15 The good old 2012 memes and LOTS of minecraft playthroughs, when bluexephos was still a thing and not sloppy content.

  6. wow, 2012 was a better time

  7. This was the way to enjoy the world before it was gonna end in 2012. (suns plasma was orbiting earth at 2:54 representing the end of the world).

  8. I came because this is way better than 2018.

  9. Who else is watching this just to compare with Youtube Rewind 2018?

  10. 2012 rewind vs 2019 rewind

  11. I got an AD for this video yesterday.

  12. Due to new comments, I can't see the real comments from 2012 and what about people was thinking

  13. I'm noticing in 2019 that Youtube 2012, and the world, seemed MUCH more optimistic than nowadays. I hope that things don't get worse for us all as this year, amd many others, progress.

  14. 2012……. when Minecraft was a thing

  15. Happy 2013! I am using internet explorer so expect this to be late

  16. For anyone wondering why this is way better than 2018, its because 2012 was really nothing else but Gangnam Style and not even the Youtube staff cant be so stupid that they wont include it

  17. I watched the vid when i was 8

  18. Sam and Anthony


    Man i miss Anthony

  19. Now i know i can time travel using youtube😮

  20. 2012
    The end of the golden age of youtube

  21. Who is watching in 2019 wishing rewind was simple like this

  22. Yay this one is accualy decent i mean its not good but its also not bad

  23. Still better than the 2018 version.

  24. I miss the old YouTube rewinds


  26. OMG THIS IS THE BEST ONE THEY HAVE had they had actually good youtubers and just made it perfect. Now youtube is just way kid friendly nothing offensive youtube rewind 2018 = trash

    Why are all the youtube rewinds good besides 2018 and 2017. 2017 is ok but still

  27. god… I miss you 2012 please take me back please. But that 2018 over there fucked it all up >:l

  28. Finally it escaped 2018 rewind

  29. this just is giving me clinical depression. not only were these older videos "better" than youtube rewind, but in my opinion they have aged pretty well for presenting old internet culture. so youtube just please crawl back into your hole where you dwell with UMG and all the other corporate a$$es

  30. Better than 2018. Way better

  31. 0:38 why zoom up to that you 2012 YouTube worker weirdos

  32. 2018 perdeu mesmo sua qualidade

  33. few much better than 2018 rewind
