I didnt fall for this.....
YouTube announced it will be shutting down after eight years and will no longer accept videos. The news comes, of course, just before April Fools' Day.
The company teamed up with The Onion to create a YouTube-star-studded video explaining how the site was set up as part of a contest to find the best home video on the Internet.
"We are so close to the end," Tom Liston, communications director at YouTube, said in the video. "Tonight at midnight, YouTube.com will no longer be accepting entries. After eight amazing years, it's finally time to review everything that has been uploaded to our site and begin the process of selecting a winner."
