How to Terminate a YouTube Account thumbnail
Terminating your YouTube account removes all your information and videos.

YouTube lets you upload videos and interact with other YouTube users. If you find that you no longer want to "Broadcast Yourself" (as goes the YouTube tagline) you can quickly and easily terminate your YouTube account. This action will remove all of your account information, videos, comments and everything else ever associated with your YouTube user name. Terminate your YouTube account with care; YouTube account closings are swift and final, with no opportunity to reverse the procedure.
