Recently, the paparazzi caught Dancing With The Stars host Tom Bergeron out and about in Los Angeles, and he had a very interesting perspective to share regarding how he thinks YouTube came about.
When asked if he thinks America’s Funniest Home Videos helped put YouTube on the map, Bergeron claimed that, “I don’t know if we put them on the map, but… there’s certainly a parallel universe, isn’t there?”
It’s definitely an interesting comparison we never thought of, but it really makes sense. Videos that go viral sometimes tend to just be ridiculous clips that absolutely would have made great fodder for America’s Funniest Home Videos years ago.
While Bergeron notes that the show is continuing to do well “in the face of YouTube.”
The world is clearly big enough for both.
