“Holy Crap” New YouTube Logo Celebrates 1 Billion Streams a Day

logo_holy_crap_1bn_a_day-vfl124472You may notice a slight change in the YouTube logo.

Google announced that its video-sharing site is now slinging out over 1 billion video streams a day.

They’re also celebrating the 3rd anniversary of them snapping up the video service for a mere $1.65bn.

But back then it was dealing up a tiny 100 million streams a day – now it hits that mark every two hours.

Commenting on the news, CEO and co-founder of YouTube Chad Hurley said, “This is a great moment in our short history and we owe it all to you.”

So – pats on the back all round – they’re obviously taking all this in their stride.

Why do I say that?

The little funsters have named the new logo’s filename:  ‘logo_holy_crap_1bn_a_day-vfl124472.png‘.

It may be getting even bigger as The Telegraph reported that Channel 4 and YouTube are close to signing a deal to bring Channel 4’s full-length shows to the site in the UK for free.
