Jamie Lilly’s fan-made ‘Year in Review’ captures the essence of 2023’s most memorable moments and may be the best thing you see today!


Global (28 December 2023) – A fan-made “Year in Review” has captured the heartbeat of 2023 in a way that’s both nostalgic and forward-looking.

For many of us, Google’s Year in Search has become an annual ritual, a tradition we eagerly anticipate. It’s a journey through the past year’s highs and lows, a reflection on the moments that defined us collectively. This year, as Google celebrated 25 years of being the go-to search engine that unites us globally, there was a sense of nostalgia in the air. Yet, it seemed like there was an appetite for something more, something that could sum up the myriad of emotions and experiences of 2023 in a more personal and evocative manner.

And that’s precisely where Jamie Lilly’s creation steps in.

Drawing inspiration from Google’s iconic year-end review, Lilly’s fan-made video is nothing short of a masterpiece. It’s a visual and emotional journey that celebrates the moments that mattered, the stories that touched our hearts, and the people who made a difference. From heartwarming acts of kindness to monumental achievements, Jamie has woven together a narrative that celebrates humanity in all its diversity and resilience.

Social media has been buzzing with admiration for Jamie’s work. Comments like “This is beautiful,” “Damn bro this is fire! I’ve been waiting for Google to post it but I really think you done a good job making this video before Google did. Heres to 2024,” and “Lovely video! Absolutely nailed it!!” are a testament to the impact Jamie’s creation has had on viewers.

In a year marked by challenges and uncertainties, this video serves as a poignant reminder that even in our darkest moments, there’s a lot of good in the world worth celebrating. It’s a celebration of resilience, compassion, and the indomitable human spirit.
