What was the first YouTube video you remember watching?

It was the summer of 2006 and my mom took me in to her work. Ah, “take your kids to work day” was always so fun. Especially because my mom worked a boring corporate desk job, which just turned into me fucking around with the other eight-year-olds in the office. But somewhere in the madness, one of my mom’s co-workers took me into her office and showed all us kids this super cool new video on her computer.

It was this…

That’s right, the Ok Go treadmill music video. We were all mesmerized, we were hooked. The music, the absurdity, the accessibility. We could watch anything like this anytime we wanted for free? And from then on she started showing us other things, thus bringing the existence of the magical video portal of YouTube into our lives. Comment below with what was your first YouTube memory!
