YouTube Rewind (stylized as YouTube ЯEWIND) is a video series produced and created by YouTube and Portal A Interactive. These videos are an overview and a recap of each year's viral videos, events, trends, and music.[9] Each year, the number of YouTube personalities featured has increased. The series' annual installments are uploaded onto YouTube's official channel.

The 2018 episode of YouTube Rewind, YouTube Rewind 2018: Everyone Controls Rewind, received near universal disdain from critics, YouTubers, and viewers alike garnering over 10 million dislikes in its first two weeks, becoming the most disliked video of all time on YouTube. Their latest installment, YouTube Rewind 2019: For the Record, received negative reactions from fans, citing that it was better than the previous installment, but was criticized due to being uncreative and lacking in energy compared to previous episodes in the series.
