A 3 minute 32 second video announced on sunday the end of the video-sharing website and the launch of a contest to find the best home video on the Internet.
In 2011, YouTube went back in time to 1911 to celebrate April Fools' Day. This year, it announced the end of the video-sharing website
"We are so close to the end. Tonight at midnight, YouTube.com will no longer be accepting entries", Tom Liston, communications director at YouTube, said in a video released, not surprisingly, just before April Fools' Day. "After eight amazing years, it's finally time to review everything that has been uploaded to our site and begin the process of selecting a winner."
