YouTube Doubler (http://youtubedoubler.com/) was a website where anyone could embed two YouTube videos into a webpage. Each video could be set to start at a different time, and each mashup could be named and linked with a short link. This website had many YouTube video URLs and titles thereof. YouTube Doubler apparently had comments powered by Disqus.

- Thanks for all the fun, but after 12 years of good times it's time to say good bye.
Was observed on (probably) any YouTube Doubler webpage.
