American free video watching and sharing website Youtube was hacked earlier on Tuesday. The website is back for use after being temporarily shutdown and unavailable for use. One of the most prominent videos hacked in the process was the official video of Despacito by Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee, which currently has over five billion views. 

The hack was noticed after several users went online to watch videos like always but saw Despacito with a rather different photo. The video had the photo of several masked people pointing guns at the screen. 

Interestingly, Despacito was not the only victim, several other videos hosted by video posting service VEVO were also hacked in the process.
