When Google bought YouTube, it was just another addition item in the tech giant’s shopping list. Today, we are going to tell you what convinced Google to go ahead and buy this little Silicon Valley startup. 

The answer lies inside the vast collection of YouTube itself. Yes, a YouTube video – actually one of the first ones to be uploaded on the website – convinced Susan Wojcicki that Google needed YouTube. Wojcicki, now YouTube CEO, led the search engine giant to acquire YouTube for $1.65 billion.

 
Nine years ago, back in 2006, Wojcicki was Google’s SVP for AdSense and Adwords. She was given the responsibility to run Google video initiative and look into options to grow the project. Luckily, she bumped into a video of two Chinese boys lip-syncing to “As Long As You Love Me” by Backstreet Boys.

Finding the video impressive and realizing its potential entertainment quotient, she says, “that was the video that made me realize that ‘Wow, people all over the world can create content, and they don’t need to be in a studio.”
