Be in on Facebook, Twitter or Tumblr, the YouTube links were dead.

But now, YouTube is back online and fully functional thanks to a team of “highly trained monkeys” that were “dispatched to deal with the situation”.

“If you see them, send them this information as text (screenshots frighten them):”.

This was followed by a long code as seen in the pic below:
