So Youtube was down for few minutes on Friday October 4, 2013 around 12 pm EST and the error message on the screen was very amusing
“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:”
Here’s a screenshot
We bet many users around the globe would have gotten restless for those few minutes and would have wondered how to kill time, maybe scrolling up and down Facebook status updates for a while?
The monkeys employed by Youtube are certainly skilled and very competent as the downtime was just for less than 2 minutes. Lets keep a track on these monkeys to acquire them when they quit working for YouTube.. not likely! Anyways, YouTube is up and I am going back to check the funny cat videos 😉
