If anyone asks who is the father of YouTube meme videos, show them this video

It’s almost 2020, and one important question that comes to mind is, what would we do without memes? The internet has played such a huge role in making memes what it is today. While there are sites dedicated mainly to memes, YouTube also has a significant part in spreading its goodness. And one person to thank is the “Numa Numa Guy.”

Back in 2005, when YouTube officially launched, it was famous for videos of different sorts like songs, movies, etc. But when Gary Brolsma uploaded a video in 2006, it changed the game. It was him singing along to O-Zone’s Dragostea Din Tei.
