YouTube? More like BoOOoTube. Jk, love you.

YouTube fans and foes, as most of you know by now, the world dominating platform shut down early this morning.

Users trying to access the site were greeted with a blank homepage and a 503 error message saying that there was a problem with the network.


YouTube, YouTube TV and YouTube Music ceased to work for users in the U.S., Brazil, Japan, parts of Australia Southeast Asia and Western Europe.


YouTube was aware of the issue and tweeted that they were doing what they could to fix the problem.

However suffice to say, people all over the world were having a complete meltdown.

^ Cue the existential crisis.

But not to worry, the insomnia-inducing site was up and running after about an hour.

YouTube has not said officially said anything on the actual reason for the error other than the fact that the site had gone down and then an update stating that it was functioning again.

And though everything is all back to normal and up to speed, lol, it was still pretty hilarious how bad everyone was freaking out. Thank god Twitter didn’t go out, otherwise, we wouldn’t have had all the tweets to prove the global meltdown:

^ @Sham Idrees.

@ Sham Idrees. Again.


^ Killed it.


The only silver lining for us Pakistanis was that most of us were sound asleep when the site shut down. Not a bad time to be in this time zone, eh?

Did you even notice the shutdown? Were you sleeping your worries away? Let us know what you think of the freak out in the comments below! Love you.
