So 14 years ago today, the first video was uploaded to YouTube. It featured co-founder Jawed Karim at the San Diego Zoo making a veiled elephant d**k joke. Nowadays, more than 400 hours of video are uploaded to YouTube every minute. YouTube has over a billion users, almost one-third of all people on the Internet.
YouTube was created February 14th 2005. Google bought the platform just over a year later for $1.65 Billion.
