YouTube Rewind: Turn Down for 2014: A Celebration of Pop Culture 2014

By Robert Paul Reyes

In the old days we used to read People or Time magazine`s end-of-the year issues to reminisce about the trending pop culture trends of the year.


But in the digital age video takes precedence over the written word, if Shakespeare were alive today he`d be producing videos for YouTube.

YouTube has created a six-minute flashback to the most addictive videos, memes, and viral videos of the Internet this year called: YouTube Rewind: Turn Down for 2014.

If you don`t know which songs topped the charts or what sparked laughter in 2014, in short if you`re an adult who doesn`t have a clue about pop culture, this is a must-see video.

This mish-mash of Pharrell`s Happy, Iggy Azalea`s Fancy, with Nicki Minaj and Ariana Grande in the mix, and a smidgen of Flappy Bird, ALS Bucket Challenge and Stephen Colbert will school you on what happened in 2014.
