Celebrating the videos, people, music, and memes that made 2017.
As per the “YouTube Rewind: The Shape of 2017” video, this was a year brimming with holding hands, dancing and laughing. The recap video was uploaded to YouTube on December 6 and for 7 minutes, we go on a trip down memory lane yet again.
“Welcome back to YouTube Rewind,” The Late Show host Stephen Colbert says. “We’ve got two special guests with us. OK, Lele and Liza, tell me about 2017.”
Lele Pons and Liza Koshy (who have around 18.8 million YouTube supporters consolidated) give each other a look that starts a compilation of the year’s greatest hits. Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee’s “Despacito” plays out of sight as we see Fonsi remaining over a Manhattan building. He slaps the camera away, which transforms it into a fidget spinner that is adjusted to Kendrick Lamar’s “Humble.”
All through the video, different tunes highlighted are “I’m The One” by DJ Khaled including Chance the Rapper, Justin Bieber, Lil Wayne and Quavo, “Shape Of You” by Ed Sheeran, “Stay” by Zedd and Alessia Cara and “DNA” by BTS.
After a rooftop party DJed by Marshmello, we return to where we began with Colbert asking Lele and Liza to inform him regarding 2017. They basically say, “It was good.” and we sure agree with them.
