YouTube co-founder Jawed Karim uploaded the first video “Me at the zoo” to the website on April 23, 2005, at 8:27 p.m, according to the description of the video, which now boasts more than 14 million views.
The 19-second clip shows Karim standing in front of elephants at the San Diego Zoo and saying that the “cool thing” about the animals is that “they have really, really, really long, um, trunks.” According to a 2010 editorial in The Toledo Blade, the clip was shot by a high school pal, Yakov Lapitsky, who is now a professor of Chemical and Environmental Engineering at the University of Toledo.
As of this writing, the video had more than 95,600 comments.In 2013, in protest of Google forcing people to have a Google+ account in order to comment on the video, Karim changed the video's description to say "I can't comment here anymore, since I don't want a google+ account."
