Is that true? Isn't it that YouTube was founded in 2005? Don't take it seriously as it's just an April Fools joke.

What's more, YouTube is even offering us today the 'Top 5 Viral Pictures of 1911'. This is crazy! Even my grandfather hasn't been born in 1911. YouTube must be kidding around. Haha, it's also an April Fools prank made by YouTube. The video is here and you could download it with this Leawo YouTube Downloader, which is free.

Other April Fools pranks include 'Gmail motion' and weird people in LinkedIn.

The video has drawn 2.5 million views as of this writing. Also, you could download it with Leawo YouTube video downloader.
