The thing with YouTube is that we now can't imagine life without it. Seriously. What did we do with our evenings when we weren't looking at Zoella's shopping bags, watching Dan and Phil play The Sims and laughing at cats wearing bonnets?
We have vague memories of being outside and breathing in fresh air, but it's all so hazy and unclear. Luckily, the brill hashtag #BeforeYouTube has been trending on Twitter all morning and some the replies are seriously funny.
Here's some of our fave memories and confessions to remind you of the dark, soulless and generally a bit crap era of a YouTube-less internet. QUEL HORREURE.
One that anyone who watches haul videos will relate to.
This. So much this.
The not so fun side of being a YouTuber.
Gahd, did we live in the caveman days or something?
Sitting through loads of songs you hated, just to wait for your fave to be played.
Yoochoober? What's a Yoochoober?
Oh cruel world.
Because everyone knows it's the only reason you ever go horizontal.
We were missing out on SO MUCH LAUGHTER at other people's misfortune.
The Sabbath day (aka upload day) is sacred now.
What's the point in a cat if it's not funny?
This is just UNIMAGINABLE NOW. Even our nan knows the words to 'Sorry'.
And now, here we are.
These days, the whole world can have a watch of your weird, disastrous life if you want 'em to.
At least we've all learned something useful.
Little did we know just HOW MUCH time could truly be wasted on the internet.
What a time to be alive.
Thank GAHD we're safely back in door, constantly staring at pixels and watching Dan and Phil play The Sims on repeat. Ahhhh YouTube, you da best.
What was YOUR life like before YouTube? It's pretty terrifying to remember, but let us know with a tweet to @Sugarscape.
