YouTuber

COBALTGRUV was one of the earliest users to comment on YouTube, plus the creator of YouTube's first spam message. He recently currently had the second known oldest comment on YouTube and he is often mistaken for being the first ever user to comment on YouTube, which got taken down due to spam.

Though "Interesting...." is often regarded as his first comment, his actual first comment is on his own first uploaded video originally called "hOUsE DISMOUNT" saying, "Well I suppose I have landed on my back once....that is only because the fence broke...lol....Thanks, for the input!!! COBALT", when he did so on June 16, 2005.[1][2][3]

He is mostly known for writing, "Interesting...." on Jawed's "Me at the zoo", the first YouTube video, posted by YouTube co-creater Jawed Karim, when he did so on July 12, 2005,[4][5][6] which got taken down due to spam after a Google+ comments integration on November 6, 2013, which removed hundreds of thousands of comments marked as spam on videos across the website.

Though COBALTGRUV did in fact once have the oldest comment on the oldest YouTube video, Me at the zoo, his is not the oldest YouTube comment ever on the website. The first currently known user to comment on YouTube was Kazze (Marco Cassé from Italy), when he did so on zubazpants's "Good Times!!!" video saying, "LOL!!!!!!!" on June 14, 2005, twenty-eight days before "Interesting....".[7][8]

Also, Jawed once commented on larfus's "Baby Fart" video saying, "rofl!!!!!!!!!!" sometime after "Interesting" in June 2005, originally uploaded on June 15, 2005,[9] which later got taken down after the channel got terminated.[10] Jawed also commented on mw's "My Snowboarding Skillz" video saying, "Ouch!" sometime in 2005.[11][12][13][14]
