James Corden’s YouTube Musical Pays Tribute to 10 Years of Viral Hits

YouTube was created 10 years ago, and it’s since blessed us with thousands of viral memes, personalities, and cat videos. To celebrate this decade of video-sharing, James Corden and the Late Late Show staged an elaborate, very entertaining YouTube musical, which pays tribute to everyone from Rebecca Black to the double-rainbow guy.

The video is packed with references, some more subtle than others, though I particularly enjoyed Corden’s nods to the grape stomp lady, David after dentist, and the deep, dulcet strains of “Chocolate Rain.”
