What went viral in 2014?

2014 was insane!

It began all cute and innocent… #Pharell Williams made the world ‘Happy’ and #Ellen DeGeneres showed us how to do the Anaconda. But, then the internet broke. Kim Kardashian’s risqué pose on the cover of Paper Magazine was just too much for some URLs to handle, while other sites were more than happy to turn her booty into an epic meme.

So, what else went viral in 2014?

Below is a list of PowToon Scientists’ Top Ten Picks.
