Happy birthday, YouTube! The online video sharing website is celebrating it's 10th birthday today! Crazy that it has been around for ten whole years - seems like it's been a way more than that!

Way back on April 23, 2005, YouTube's co-founder Jawed Karim shared the first clip ever to be uploaded to the website. It is entitled, "Me at the zoo." The 18 second video has close to 20 million views! Wow!

The clip is obviously intended to be a test upload tas the content is plain silly. Jawed discusses the elephants standing behind him and how they have "really really long trunks."

YouTube was founded in February 2005. Karim's co-founders are Chad Hurley and Steven Chen. All three internet geniuses were all previously employed at PayPal. In November 2006, Google bought YouTube for $1.65 billion.

Have you ever watched the first video ever uploaded to YouTube before? Check it out here:
