Ink may wash away, pencil graphite may smudge, but what you post on the Internet is forever. Most of our high school lives were spent worrying our Facebook images and Instagrams would be found by possible college acceptance committees. Come adulthood, that same worry grew from colleges to potential employers. Thankfully, the vast majority of us won’t have to worry about people ripping our videos and screenshoting our Myspace comments, saving them for blackmail or Internet fodder. When you’re famous, however, what you post online—no matter how old it may be—will be found and it will not be forgotten.

Take YouTube, for example. A slew of today’s biggest names have gotten their start on the platform. (Looking at you, Bieber.) Then there were some celebrities who tried their hand at vlogging. Some took an artistic route; others went for the pseudo talk show route; others, well, others threw all caution to the wind and did whatever they wanted, because it was the early-aughts and everything was beautiful and nothing hurt. Ahead, we flashback to an easier time, when celebrities goofed around on YouTube just for kicks and giggles—a time when everyone was still trying to figure out just what the hell YouTube was. Ah, the good ol’ days. How we miss thee.
