Friday fact #22: The first video that was uploaded to YouTube

Me at the zoo is the first video that was uploaded to YouTube.

The video is eighteen seconds long and was shot by Yakov Lapitsky at the San Diego Zoo with Jawed Karim in front of elephants in their old exhibit in Elephant Mesa, talking about their lengthy trunks.

This is the transcript of the video:

All right, so here we are in front of the, uh, elephants, and the cool thing about these guys is that, is that they have really, really, really long, um, trunks, and that’s, that’s cool, and that’s pretty much all there is to say.
