Celebrating 5 years of YouTube with the ‘YouTube Canon’

Celebrating 5 years of YouTube, the city theater of Amsterdam and Upload Cinema presented the YouTube Canon, compiled by new media professionals (including the INC). The shows on February 22 and 23, 2010 were sold out entirely. After enjoying YouTube classics for two hours, the audience itself was subject of a YouTube video. One thousand people sang the Numa Numa song. Here’s a world record to beat!

The event received a lot of media attention.
