Agence France-Presse (AFP), via InterAksyon.com, reports that "in an elaborate April Fool’s prank, YouTube announced it was going dark for a decade, and that the site was merely an eight-year contest to find the best video." The report noted: "The message was simple: the world’s most popular video-sharing website would close at the end of the day to review all the video submissions it has received over the years, and would announce the best one in 2023."

 

YouTube’s annoucement was done by someone named Tim Liston, who was tagged as "competition director." Liston had said, "We are so close to the end. Tonight at midnight (March 31), YouTube.com will no longer be accepting entries. After eight amazing years, it is finally time to review everything that has been uploaded to our site and begin the process of selecting a winner."
