Or, it could just be a very well-done music video.

Now, the video is on track to become one of YouTube's most disliked uploads in history.

His remake of We Are Singapore, the official National Day Parade theme song for 2018, was the top trending non-music YouTube video in Singapore this year.

After that, it's all downhill.

As of December 7, YouTube Rewind 2018 has a massive dislike to like ratio, with over two and a half million dislikes in comparison to 1,500,000 likes. Undeservingly in the eighth spot (in a better world, it'd be trending way higher than frivolous content) was Channel NewsAsia's intriguing look into Singapore's only women's prison.

No. 2 was a video from Dude Perfect, a YouTube channel whose trick shot videos are routinely among the most popular on the platform. Alongside travel vlogging couple Titan & Gaius, cryptocurrency connoisseur Rock The Block Live, and Millennials of Singapore.

The number one video on YouTube's Rewind list for 2018 is a video from Kylie Jenner which recounts special moments about her pregnancy with daughter Stormi Webster.


A user with username FeFe commented on the video, "This just shows that YouTube doesn't know what YouTube is all about".

The video does kind of steamroll past its most important point: about midway through the video, several YouTubers stop and give credit to other creators who have raised money for charity or education, and to spotlight creators who give voice to oft-overlooked communities, such as drag or single mothers.

"We were there watching the YouTube live stream - there was 11 million people concurrently watching the live stream - and then we went on to re-watching".

Google Singapore's head of communications, Ms Angeline Leow, said YouTube is a platform for Singaporeans to be entertained and to express themselves.

All things considered, it's not YouTube's fault these videos are always so awkward - it has to be squeaky clean for a young audience.

"She has millions of fans that are more likely to share and engage on her videos".
