YouTube.com Goes Down and Displays Strange Error Message

Would you share this Article with others?  +

Last week, the most popular video sharing website, YouTube.com, went down for a few seconds displaying the error message below. A few minutes after YouTube.com went down, I started receiving email messages from friends, family members and other online users, asking me if the website was hacked. No, YouTube was not hacked. The website just went down for a few minutes due a server or programming problem as stated by the message below.

The YouTube.com Outage Message:

500 Internal Server Error
Sorry, something went wrong.

A team of highly trained monkeys has been dispatched to deal with this situation.
If you see them, show them this information

This message is very funny and it had me laughing for a few minutes. But, it was this message why a lot of persons though the website was hacked. They though Google would not display a message like this and though that a hacker had gained access to their servers and put the message there. But, this is why you have to love the hard working people at Google; they take the time out for a little humor.

Websites will occasionally go down due to maintenance, update, upgrade or hardware crashes. So, it is not usual for a website like YouTube to go down for a few seconds.
