In that special week of June people in US were listening to Umbrella by Rihanna. The Man from Earth, directed by Richard Schenkman, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2007 while Angels Fall by Nora Roberts was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Talk to Me. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Battle Fantasia or Chase H.Q. 2.
