Youtube Goes Black And White (1911)

Fri Apr 01, 2011 9:25 pm

So does anyone know why they're doing this?

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y7FVU5JqTrI&feature=related

If you click the link, there's a "1911" tab on the bottom of the video. If you click it, it turns the video to black and white with those old fashioned music that you hear from Silent Films back in the days.

You could also watch it in "1911" mode with other videos, I just chose this randomly.

Pretty Cool I must say.  
It's a cultural thing.

Their 100th anniversary, if they'd been around 100 years.

I still think they should have redirected every video to Rebecca Black but they still did a good job with this one.

It definitely makes videos like this one http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y5sdOh7Bcvs even more entertaining
