Rewind the year with YouTube video celebrating songs, people and memes of 2014

Another year, another YouTube-produced “Rewind” video celebrating the people, memes and hit songs that made the last 365 days.

This year’s video, “Turn Down for 2014,” includes appearances by John Oliver, Stephen Colbert, Jimmy Kimmel and Conan O’Brien, whose late-night antics often went viral this year, as well as YouTube stars like Tiny Hamster (eater of tiny things) and Kid President. It also references the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge and winsome vlogbrothers videos produced by “The Fault in our Stars” author John Green and his brother Hank. And it samples some of the year’s biggest songs, including “Happy” by Pharrell Williams, “Fancy” by Iggy Azalea and “Let It Go” from Disney’s “Frozen.”

How many more references can you find?

Now let it go. Let it gooooooooo.
