    It's a joke and if you Google it, you'll realize it's quite funny.

    It struck me as humorous but I didn't understand it. I'll google it.

    Ok, that is funny! Have you seen that genie movie with Bernie Mac? I know I have but it's gone too.:):D

    Still works OK here although the intrusive ads popping up when you are reading the comments is making it unwatchable.

    The clue is in your screenshot. See the link that says switch to mobile? Click that.

    BE CAREFUL what you say and do on Youtube. They are owned by Google and will cancel your response and comment privileges. It's not a hype. It happened to me.
    No, I didn't curse, threaten, post hate speech or disinformation, etc.

    I tried that. Doesn't help. I'm sure it's part of the service degradation they've been texting me about. Especially since several other folk have the same issue as of yesterday.

    I hate to buy a new phone but those tech pushers are like drug pushers. Get you hooked and make you pay!

    My mobile is all the tech I have. I don't even have a landline anymore, let alone an internet provider. Looks like I'm going to have to get a new(er) phone. Eventually.

    Yeah your antique is no longer supported with free software updates that the old girls hardware couldn't run if she got it.

    Youtube needs reasonably current hardware and software on the device.

    Don't use the YT app, go to YouTube via your browser of choice (perhaps not Chrome)
    you also enjoy the privilege of free adblocking ;)

    that'll work on older phones too.

    It helps to understand the joke if you have one of these.
