Share Article

In its annual signature list that recaps the best – and occasionally worst – stories and highlights of the year, WatchMojo looks back at 2012 across its most popular categories.



WatchMojo delivered its annual summary of the year by publishing a comprehensive End of Year video (YouTube link, WatchMojo link), covering the top 10 news stories of 2012 and reviewing other headlines and pop culture trends.

The final list includes:

  •     Gaffes and memes from the United States Presidential Election;
  •     A recap of the devastation caused by Hurricane Sandy;
  •     Memorable moments from London’s big year;
  •     Increased interest in science with stories like CERN’s possible discovery of the Higgs boson and NASA’s Curiosity Mars Rover;
  •     Facebook’s disastrous IPO;
  •     Pop culture trends like “Gangnam Style” and “Call Me Maybe;”
  •     And much more.

This year’s retrospective comes on the heels of last year’s popular 12-part video series and microsite, as well as the comprehensive eight-part 2000s decade in review that WatchMojo published in 2009, which included videos on business, fashion, music, science and more.
