The first-ever video that was uploaded to youtube has been ruined because of some hack which has taken place.
The video’s description has been edited to:
“The first video on YouTube. Maybe it’s time to go back to the zoo?sub2sub kthxbai — fast and loyal if not i get a subs back i will unsubs your cahnnel(Credit: The name of the music playing in the background is Darude – Sandstorm)”
Initially, people thought it was some channel begging for subscribers which goes by the name of ‘kthxbai’. But digging a little deeper suggests otherwise. Turns out that this word used to be a meme 3 years ago and if we go to the channel with the same name. We can see the favourite videos of the channel which includes a video from T Series which lead some sceptics to believe that T Series was behind it. The video has also been targeted by bots who are constantly commenting on the video begging for subscribers. Turns out that many of those of bots seems to be of Indian origin. Although they are getting none.
What exactly happened?
This can be the work of some individual hacker who doesn’t speak English and he did what he did solely for meme purposes. The bots can be explained by being the product of the third-party websites which sell subscribers for money to desperate channels.
What does this mean?
All this means is that if Youtube does not do anything to fix the first-ever video uploaded to the platform. It is ruined forever, the description and all the bots commenting is just outright disrespectful to everything the video stands for. At the time of writing this article, the video has been bombarded by around 3.8 Million comments. Most of them being bot comments.
