Prepare to feel ancient.

Thursday marked 10 years since the first video was uploaded to YouTube. That video, an 18-second clip of one of the company’s co-founders at the San Diego Zoo, has been viewed almost 20 million times since April 23, 2005.

That number is paltry compared to the most-watched clips in YouTube history. In the website’s history, two videos have been viewed over 1 billion times — the music videos for Psy’s “Gangnam Style” and Justin Bieber’s “Baby.” In fact, the 10 most-watched videos in YouTube history are all music videos.

Below is a list of the 10 most-viewed YouTube videos that are not music videos or full-length episodes of TV shows. All statistics are correct as of April 23, 2015.
