YouTube is not available, and the Internet does not know what to do.
The video platform was unavailable Tuesday night and showed either a server error, a blank page, or corrupted images when people tried to load the site.
The YouTube app also had the same issues.
YouTube wrote in a tweet that it "works on solving the problems" and apologized for any inconvenience.
Thank you for your reports Having trouble accessing YouTube, YouTube TV and YouTube Music. We are working to resolve this and will let you know as soon as it is resolved. We apologize for any inconvenience and will keep you informed.

As you'd expect, the Internet freaks out. The Philadelphia Police has jokingly (or not?) Asked that people do not call the emergency service because of the failure.
Other YouTubers have wondered what's going on on Earth.
Mashable has turned to Google and YouTube for more details.
UPDATE: October 17, 2018, 13:43 AEDT YouTube seems to have restarted. Catch your breath.
