The date will go down in history....April 23rd, 2005....That's the day that this :19 second video became the first one ever uploaded to You Tube.

 

It’s called simply ‘Me at the zoo’ and features YouTube co-founder Jawed Karim standing near some elephants at the San Diego Zoo.

The clip has garnered more than 14 million views to date and paved the way for a legion of videos that made us smile, from ‘David After Dentist’ to Rebecca Black to Antoine Dodson and everyone (and everything) in between.

Watch the clip and be amazed....on how easily we were entertained 9 years ago. Oh and yes the guys right, elephants do have really, really long trunks.
