YouTube Time Travels to 1911 for April Fools

YouTube has kicked off the April Fools festivities with a celebration of its “100th birthday” — a journey into what YouTube might have looked like in 1911, if YouTube or the Internet existed back then.

The video platform is going all out; not only has it released a promotional video depicting the “top five viral pictures of 1911,” but it has also updated the logo and inserted a classic 1911 button on every video. Clicking it will transform any YouTube clip into an old-school motion picture, complete with a grainy yellowish skin and an accompanying early 20th century piano soundtrack to match.
