At WTU, we want to help bring you the best of YouTube every week, without digging through the endless void that is the 400 hours of video uploaded every minute.
This list is the beginning of a weekly feature to highlight our favourite videos from each genre on YouTube from the past week; videos you might have missed to help you get through the weekend. Enjoy!
Ava Gordy – What Really Happened (ft. Meghan Tonjes and Soundlyawake)
There’s always some form of drama happening within the YouTuber community; and when it does, you’re likely to see a lot of vague vlogs and subtweets about it that don’t actually reveal anything.

But by the time you catch on, you just want to watch all the way through to see how long they can keep it up without breaking.
