UPDATE: June 16, 2017, 10:16 a.m. EDT YouTube is back up, and life is ALL GOOD again. Carry on! The original story follows below.
The world’s largest online video platform is not loading… and ahhhh… what the heck are we gonna do?
YouTube went down on Friday morning and sent the internet into a tizzy. Instead of seeing the familiar YouTube home page, users were greeted with an error message.
In typical Google style, the error message was kinda cute and funny:
Naturally, the internet, not being able to get its fix of Justin Bieber, fidget spinners, and people breaking their iPhones just for kicks, is not happy.
Honestly, we’re all probably feeling a bit like this right now:

Seriously, who the hell can even work when YouTube is broken?
Me: YOUTUBE IS DOWN. WHAT WILL I DO?!?!
Boss: I dunno…work?
Me: WHO CAN WORK AT A TIME LIKE THIS?!?!
