On December 6, TIME magazine will reveal the much-anticipated ‘Person of #The Year.’ The coveted cover page usually features a man, a woman, a group, an idea, or an object that for better or for worse influenced the events of the year.

With an active fan base around the world, April the giraffe certainly fulfills the criteria, but she wasn’t nominated. Pop icon #Taylor Swift was nominated, but the singer did not make it to the finals. But all is not lost.

If current rumors are anything to go by, the carrot-crunching mommy giraffe of Animal Adventure Park and the diamond necklace-biting singer will be featured in another prestigious digital platform this December.

If all goes well, April the giraffe will make it to “YouTube Rewind” series.

What is YouTube Rewind?

Each year, YouTube, a subsidiary of Google, picks popular content on the platform and compiles them in a year-end video series called the “YouTube Rewind.” This video segment usually features an overview and a recap of the year’s most watched videos, events, memes, music, and more.

According to rumors swirling on social media, alongside Taylor Swift’s “Look What You Made Me Do,” April giving birth to Tajiri might be one among the few chosen videos to be featured on YouTube Rewind. “Look What You Made Me Do” was played 43.2 million times in just its first 24 hours.

Mystery at the giraffe barn

A couple of days ago, Animal Adventure Park put up a poster on the wall of the giraffe barn. The date “12/6/2017” was printed on the poster.

This led to an animated debate on the park’s YouTube channel. While many were clueless, some hinted that the date could refer to the April the giraffe being featured on the YouTube Rewind series.

Jordan Patch, the owner of Animal Adventure Park, has been tight-lipped about this. Meanwhile, on Facebook groups, fans of the giraffe family are trying to speculate the significance of the date.

A blast from the past

April the giraffe, who was pregnant for almost sixteen months, gave birth to Tajiri on April 15, a day before Easter. The live birth drew a mammoth audience. About 14 million people from around the world were hooked on to the live cam as the beautiful giraffe gave birth to an adorable baby calf. More than 1.2 million people watched April give birth live, thereby making it the most-viewed live events ever on YouTube.

Tajiri is now a big boy. He is about eight months old. Oliver and April have started romancing again. According to reports, April the giraffe might announce her next pregnancy very soon. #Hall of Fame
