🙈 "youtube.com" is down - proving it with UI testing!

Was goofing off at work watching youtube, until it started failing on me.

Thought it was wifi until I checked using a public UI test script on it.

You tube test script

Feel free to run the test multiple times here : https://snippet.uilicious.com/test/public/RuGwPjbwFX1QU5EVhvNHZu - hopefully this does not make me go down next 😂

So #hugops, cheer on the SRE engineers who is rushing to fix it. Keeping things working 24/7 is hard work after all.

And definitely, definitely do not call the police.

Its only youtube, not the end of the world (yet)
