There are billions and billions of videos on YouTube, but we've gone back and found the first ever video uploaded to the site.

It was posted by co-founder Jawed Karim at the San Diego Zoo on April 23, 2005. Watch it now.

It's amazing to think that clip was the very start of the YouTube phenomenon.
