It’s hard to believe the time that has passed

YouTuber megastar Zoe Sugg has reached quite the milestone this week – being on YouTube for six goshdarn years. To celebrate this awesome milestone, we have compiled a list of things which are also six years old:


1. The Movie ‘2012’

Never has a movie so clearly and expertly predicted future events as Francis Ford Coppola’s greatest work: 2012. It’s hard to believe that, at the time, this disaster movie was viewed as mere fantasy. There’s also a chance Zoe Sugg watched it, but we cannot confirm that.


2. The Sears Tower Was officially renamed the Willis Tower Six years Ago

It’s hard to remember a time before things went Willis, but yes, Sears used to own that tower just over half a decade ago. 2009 was also the first time the tower was hollowed out, as before then, it was made of solid concrete and served no purpose whatsoever.


3. This 2009 Dodge Avenger

It’s hard to believe that it’s already been six years, but yes, this trusty bucket-o-bolts has been cruising the roads for as many years as Zoella has been warming our hearts. Here’s to six more happy years!




4. The iPod Touch 3G

It’s hard to believe that this little beauty has been a fixture in our lives for as long as Zoella. Arguably the most iconic Apple product of them all, this phone-that’s-not-a-phone was the small black rectangle in your pocket in 2009 and has been ever since. Does Zoe Sugg own one of these? Yes, she actually owns four!


5. Lady Gaga’s ‘Poker Face’

It’s hard to believe that Lady Gaga exploded onto both the scene and our iPod Touch 3G’s six years ago. She redefined the music video game and shocked audiences by producing a number 1 song about gambling. Fun fact: this is a song that Zoe Sugg has almost certainly probably heard.



6. My Nephew Tavin

They grow up so fast.
