To celebrate the one year anniversary of Jim Chapman outing Zalfie on YouTube, TenEighty recap some of the couples best moments online.
Everyone loves a love story – and what better way to live vicariously through a romantic couple than on YouTube. Today, Thursday 7 August 2014 is exactly 365 days since Jim Chapman accidentally made Zalfie go canon. Join us on our whistle-stop journey through the story so far. Awww.
5) The Zalfie Reveal

It’s the screencap that started it all. On this day one year ago poor Jimbob innocently uploaded a vlog that would change the lives of shippers worldwide. One little peak at Zoes laptop was all it took for the fandom to piece together the puzzle and rumble Zalfie. Our world has never been the same. #Zalfie5eva
4) Zoe on Zalfie

Like anyone in the public eye, it wasn’t long before Zoe and Alfie had to address the rumours. Our favourite thing about the blog post is the real talk. No cute gifs or funny quips, she addressed the situation in her very own PR statement and put any naysayers to rest for good. Go Zoe!
To outsiders this snarky remark might seem like a sly dig, but we think @PhilisAmazing slaysss. Yes, our favourite Phan account weighed in on the Zalfie news to give us this little gem – it really is the gift that keeps on giving. News of the day, indeed.
3) My Valentines Date
“We’re not in a relationship” they say, “We’re literally two friends making a video together” they say…
This video was the key turning point where they both quelled the rumours and ignited our suspicions. Were they going out back then? Perhaps we will never know…(cough* of course they were *cough). There is nothing more romantic than a valentines video.
2) Halloween Cupcakes with PointlessBlog | Zoella
Now we know it’s only August, but there’s no harm in being prepared – so at number two it’s the Halloween Cupcakes video by Zoe. The pair go a bit wild in this video, cracking eggs over each others heads and throwing sprinkles round the place – but the results of their baking look pretty tasty. Alfie comments: “This isn’t one of Zoe’s normal videos”, but we quite like the Zalfie banter and hilarious outtakes at the end. BOO.

It’s safe to say there was absolutely no competition for our number one zalfie video. Set to the warming tones of pops favourite ginger Ed Sheeran, this video has got everything. Longing glances on the beach, a cheeky kiss and even a baby – not their own, obvs. We’ll be first to break the news of a Zalfie baby, don’t you worry. So snuggle down, grab a pillow and prepare to shed a tear or two, all in the name of YouTubes favourite ship.
So there we have it, we’ve experienced the ups, the downs and a whole lot of mucking around. Here’s to another 365 days of being single and crying over their perfect lifes, eh? No? Just us? #ForeverAlone
