In case you missed it, yesterday we launched a very special week here on The Rewind, Balls.ie's pop culture section. We are looking to crown the greatest Irish video in the history of YouTube and we need your help to do it.

After taking onboard all your suggestions we have narrowed the field down to what we believe are the best 32. We then 16 seeded videos and conducted a draw this afternoon on Instagram Live to decide the match-ups for round one of our public vote. From here on, every decision will be in your hands, with voting open both on our site and on our Instagram page.

The draw has thrown up a few interesting match-ups, with Teresa Mannion vs Shlow Down Tommy arguably the tie of the first round. The winners of each match will progress to the next round where they will face the other winner in their bracket. The full bracket is as follows:
