YouTube Celebrates Ninth Birthday With A Mashup Of Its Musical Hits

In a video released on the YouTube Spotlight channel, a handful of the site's top stars belt out karaoke versions of YouTube's greatest hits. The four-minute video runs through nine years of viral YouTube hits. Chester See kicks things off with a rendition of "Chocolate Rain" before Tay Zonday himself arrives to belt out his version of the "Bed Intruder Song". Other highlights include MysteryGuitarMan's on-point cover of the "Trololo" song and Steve Kardynal's hilariously off-key mangling of "Call Me Maybe". There are plenty of other YouTubers in attendance, and they team up to sing karaoke versions of eight different YouTube classics. The video arrived on YouTube one day after the site teamed up with John Legend and the Kennedy Center to present YouTube Onstage Live, a showcase of some of the brightest musicians YouTube has to offer.
