Why Is YouTube Down? You'll Have To Watch Adele's "Hello" Somewhere Else For Now
On Wednesday afternoon, shortly after noon, video sharing site YouTube abruptly went down. Instead of being able to search for Adele's "Hello" for the 56th time, users were met with: "500 Internal Server Error ... Sorry, something went wrong. A team of highly trained monkeys has been dispatched to deal with this situation. If you see them, show them this information." As of 1 p.m. Wednesday, YouTube had returned to operation, leaving us all to play "Hello" on repeat, inexplicably driven to think about that guy we saw in Starbucks six and a half years ago.
