YouTube celebrates its eighth birthday today as the first video uploaded to the site happened on April 24, 2005. It was a beta test video titled "Me at the zoo" and featured YouTube co-founder Jawed Karim talking for 20 seconds about elephants.

Now with millions of unique visits a day on YouTube and billions of page views, it's hard to picture a time without cat videos on demand, flash mobs invading public places and double rainbows going all the way.

For some of the best and most talked about YouTube videos in the past eight years, check out Solon's compilation of eight classic YouTube videos.
