YouTube celebrated its 10th anniversary back in February . . . it was founded on February 14th, 2005. But the first actual video was posted ten years ago TODAY.
It's an 18-second clip of one of the co-founders standing in front of an elephant pen at the San Diego Zoo. And in addition to being the first YouTube video . . . it also might be the most BORING. But if you want to watch it, it's called "Me at the Zoo".
Netflix's "Full House" revival "Fuller House" is officially a go . . . and as we'd heard, it'll star Candace Cameron Bure and Andrea Barber, who are back as D.J. Tanner and her friend Kimmy Gibbler.
Jodie Sweetin, who played D.J.'s sister Stephanie, is also in the fold . . . but the word is still out on Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, who teamed up to play Michelle.
Here's the premise: D.J. Tanner is still living in San Francisco, but now she's a pregnant veterinarian who was recently widowed. She also has two preteen boys, so Stephanie and Kimmy move in with her . . . like how Joey and Jesse moved in with Danny on the original show.
Kimmy is also a single mother. Her teenage daughter will be moving in too. Interestingly enough, Stephanie is an aspiring musician like Jesse. It's unclear if she'll also be a recovering drug addict like she is in real life.
John Stamos is producing the show, and he'll also make guest appearances. Bob Saget, Dave Coulier, Lori Loughlin, AND the Olsen twins are all reportedly in talks to return, but it's unclear how far along they are.
One final note: It's going to start off as a one-hour reunion special . . . and then spin off into the show. So, there's a chance they're only able to land some cast members for the reunion, and not for the actual show.
We're assuming the special would also be a Netflix thing. For now, the show will have 13 episodes, and is scheduled to hit Netflix sometime next year.
WILLIE NELSON made it official yesterday . . . he's getting into the marijuana business. He's launching his own brand of legal weed called Willie's Reserve, and it sounds like it's going to be quality stuff.
He says, quote, "I will make sure it's good or it won't be on sale." He also promises to "work with the best growers in Colorado and Washington." He's not just doing this to make a buck. He wants to "lend support" to the legalization movement.
At this point, Willie's Reserve will only be sold in Colorado and the state of Washington, which is where recreational marijuana is legal.
In honor of the launch, he released a video of a new song with MERLE HAGGARD called "It's All Going To Pot". It's the first single from their collaboration album "Django and Jimmie", which is due out June 2nd.
A 13-year-old girl teamed up with Hyundai to help send a message to her father aboard the International Space Station. By using 11 sedans, Hyundai was able to write “Steph [heart]’s you!” in the sand Nevada’s Delamar Dry Lake. Guinness World Records confirmed that Stephanie's message constituted the largest tire-track image ever created, measuring 59,808,480.26 square feet. Steph’s father was able to snap a picture of it from space!
