Will Smith is the biggest celeb to have joined YouTube in 2018 and with his bungee jump bday celebration, it made sense to have him kick things off. The uber-popular YouTuber sparked more than backlash when he posted a video of an actual suicide victim while hiking through Japan's Aokigahara forest, also known as "Suicide Forest". This time around, online gaming mega-sensation Fortnite provides the backdrop, with content creators dropping into a jungle setting via the game's preferred form of group transit: a school bus hot air balloon.

Meanwhile, Ariana Grande's pop-culture-inflected video for "Thank U, Next", which dropped November 30, broke the YouTube record for most views in 24 hours (with 55.4 million).

Ministry of amusing was the only Singaporean channel selected for You-Tube's global initiative, Creators for Change, which highlights creators who tackle tough issues in society and make a positive impact globally.

Though YouTube said its content creators "controlled" the direction of its roundup, the platform's community largely-and vehemently-disagrees.
