In that special week of August people in US were listening to Party Rock Anthem by LMFAO. Fright Night, directed by Craig Gillespie, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2011 while A Dance With Dragons by George R. R. Martin was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Black Dynamite. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Combat of Giants: Dinosaurs 3D or Dirty Drivin'.
