2016 Pop Culture Rewind

The Daily Catch - published on 12/09/16

2016 has been a busy year, especially for the ever changing internet fads and pop culture references. We blame the internet, but hold no grudges or we’d be out of a job.

In case you need some help keeping track of all the sensations of the year, Youtube Spotlight has put together this comprehensive video featuring just about all the most popular crazes of 2016. The amount of celebrities they got to make cameos is truly impressive.

It doesn’t have everything, they don’t really mention the election which shaped much of pop culture this year, or the huge amounts of celebrity deaths, but it’s a fun video that made us smile on a gloomy Friday.

Happy weekend folks!
