It has since garnered over 90 million views. To this day, it is the only video on Karim’s channel.
Unlike many YouTube creators’ videos these days, Karim’s video does not include what’s considered the more traditional sign off: “Subscribe to my channel!” or “Like, rate, comment!”
A year after “Me at the zoo,” Karim and fellow co-founders sold the platform to Google for a whopping $1.65 billion.
Now, the platform boasts more than 2 billion logged-in users visit each month, according to YouTube.
YouTube says one billion hours of content is watched daily.
And it all began with Karim, at the zoo.
