    Those of you who believed that YouTube was hacked yesterday evening were wrong - the webmasters played a joke on us all.

    For those who missed it, YouTube, which hosts homemade videos, took down the site and posted a cryptic and grammatically incorrect place-holder message written in capital letters: "All your video are belong to us."

    The inability to get on to the site and the poor grammar had some YouTube fans believing that the site had been hacked. At around 10:45 p.m. PT, an additional sentence appeared that let confused users in on the hoax. "No, we haven't been hacked. Get a sense of humor."

    Maybe it would have been better if they were shut down for good?

    I think they wanted to be "hacked" to get some publicity... the realized their logo is a dead giveaway to the fact they did it themselves.... and layed it off as a joke...

    Idiots.

    Awesome, I wish I could have seen it!

    I would have probably responded with "aw man... now where am I supposed to watch my comedy central shows?" Maybe the TV right? lol.

    But its interesting, I dont know why some people are pissed about it. Its there site after all :p

    First of all, what the hell is a HOSER - I don't think that a Canadian word, or even English for that matter???

    Secondly, people don't just run a site for no reason... it's a source of income. to shut it down as a joke it stupid. Either they had problems and didn't want to admit it so they chocked it up as a joke, or they were looking for publicity (that they did well, I'll give that to them). But in NO WAY was it meant to be funny! How is that funny??? That's like shutting down the local harware store for a day and then reopening and saying "APRIL FOOLS" - no dumb ass, you are the fool, you just lost a day's worth of sales - there is NOTHING funny about that (although as I said, it is good publicity).

    I didn’t think it was very funny but it seemed like a good time for a Canadian joke. As for hoser you need to watch strange brew…drinks another beer.

    About as funny as falling off a cliff...

    "All your sense of humour are belong to retard" seems appropriate here.

    Everybody gets the "All your base" jokes, nobody finds them funny. Go drink some Coolpis...
