that YouTube itself actually put together
to celebrate its tenth anniversary. Okay. Wow, it’s been around
for ten years. That’s crazy. (Finebros) Did you know YouTube’s
been around now for ten years? I knew it was quite a while. That’s crazy it’s been
around for ten years. But that’s still really young,
if you think about. I feel like YouTube has been around
so much longer than 10 years. I did know that YouTube’s
been around for ten years, although it seems kinda crazy. Makes me feel much younger
than I ever have been before. I didn’t think it was
a ten-year-old thing already. That means I’m old. That means you’re old. We’re all getting older! (Finebros) How much YouTube
do you watch in a given week? Oh god. Not enough to count. Not anywhere near– I mean,
my kids, that’s all they do. Every week. Like, that’s all I watch. It’s become like a nightly routine. I don’t have cable anymore.
I just cut it off. So just YouTube is my entertainment. I’m gonna guesstimate,
like, three hours a day? I’d probably say about eight hours. When my son gets home from school, we watch YouTube videos
while he’s doing homework. Probably 10 to 15 hours a week. I’m always looking
for stuff for my classes. So we’ll even use
Crash Course, John Green. We use that, like,
all the time for history. Seems like that’s happening
with everybody now, is everyone just going to YouTube
and watching YouTube. (Finebros) With your kids,
are they already getting into YouTube? Yes. That’s all he watches. It’s a concept that escapes me. He has no TV shows that he watches. A 17-year-old watches a lot with me. He’ll watch a lot of
fail stuff on his own. She likes watching… Markiplier. She loves Markiplier. Constantly. All the time. (Finebros) Do you know
what they’re even watching? I really actually don’t.
Does that make me a bad parent? – (Finebros snicker)
– Whoops. (Finebros) Do you remember what
you first thought about YouTube when you first found it, compared
to how feel about YouTube now? I didn’t think much
about YouTube, honestly. I was wondering, honestly, how they were gonna make money off of it. As someone who’s in
the tech field, I was like, “There’s no way they can
afford all this bandwidth.” When I first viewed it?
Probably like a lot of people– was just kinda like, “This is
something the kids are into.” I didn’t see it going to where it is now. But the other teachers look at me
as kinda the guy that’s like, “All he does is show movies
every day.” It’s like, no. This is actually a tool that can
be used within the classroom not only to grab their attention but also to enhance
what we’re already teaching. (Finebros) So YouTube’s first video
was uploaded April 2005. – What were you doing in 2005?
– 2005. I was in fifth grade. I was in fifth grade, so I was
probably having a lemonade stand. I was a sophomore in high school. I’d just graduated college. I was in college. (giggles) I think I had my first internship
at the job I work at now. I was knee-deep in having
little kids, so it’s all a blur. I was five years into teaching. I was trying to pretend to be a rock star playing in bands around town. I was being just a boring suburban parent. Like, nothing– raising kids and working. (Finebros) Could you ever
have imagined ten years ago that web content
would be what it is today? No idea. The fact that we utilize it
for everything is insane. I didn’t see the potential. My daughter’s just like,
“How did you survive?” (laughs) And you know what? Honestly, sometimes even
I can’t answer that question. (Finebros) Do you still find
yourself getting entertainment – from the same sources you did in 2005?
– Oh, no. I mean, now I’m streaming everything. I don’t even watch regular TV anymore. I’m watching a lot more
YouTube videos and Netflix than I am regular TV. I don’t really like TV that much.
I stick to YouTube. I haven’t had a TV for two years,
and I’ve been so much happier. I still watch TV. There are a couple shows
that we like to watch “live,” you know? Like Scandal. But a lot of the stuff
we watch is on Hulu. We watch TV. We have a few select shows. And then the rest of the time is spent either on my phone or on my laptop
checking out videos online. Entertainment for me
ten years ago was probably still playing games on the PC. We had LAN parties for playing Halo. It’s similar in that
I’m still playing video games, and you can still go online
and play with friends. But it’s different in the sense that they don’t have to be in the same
room with sheets hanging up. (Finebros) So what are
your thoughts overall about YouTube and social media
and how it gives people an ability to broadcast in a whole new way that has resulted in digital
celebrities and social movements; and here you are right now
on an Internet show that’s gonna be seen by more people
than a lot of cable TV shows? I think it’s awesome. It’s crazy. Isn’t it so crazy? It gives just your average person the ability to show their creativity and not have Hollywood have
that kind of stranglehold on it that they did have previous to this. It gives people a voice as well. And the fact that you can
hear other people’s opinions and possibly glean something
from that– that’s huge. One little click, and you
can send that message to thousands of people and even just have
the message up on public for literally the whole
wide world to see it. YouTube has been something
that has really opened up an opportunity to learn things that were never available to us before. I think that’s what YouTube’s about, is just being able to go somewhere after. And no matter what happens in your day,
you can just go there, and there’s a video for everything to make you feel every single way. And I think that’s really cool. (Finebros) So finally,
with YouTube’s growth over the last ten years, where is YouTube and
entertainment online going to be – in another ten years?
– Dude, just in my head. Just beam it right in there. I think it’s gonna be
the equivalent of television, and cable’s gonna be the rotary phone. The TV is gonna die. I don’t think television
is gonna be a thing anymore. YouTube is gonna be the most
dominant source for videos and TV. We’re no longer gonna
have dumb cable boxes. You’re gonna have stuff
like Apple TVs and stuff like that, where you can interact more
with what’s going on TV. It’s gonna be a mix of TV and Reddit. It’s like with– what was it? Blockbuster. They had the monopoly on
renting videos and renting movies. And then slowly the Internet came along. And they kept thinking like,
“Oh no, we’re too big to fail. We’re too big to fail. Ha ha ha!” (imitates plummet) And if it continues the way that it is, I think it’s actually gonna be even bigger than, say, television, than movies. Thanks so much for watching
