It was Monday, under the sign of Leo (see birth chart on August 12, 2013). The US president was Barack Obama (Democrat), the UK Prime Minister was David Cameron (Conservative). In that special week of August people in US were listening to Blurred Lines by Robin Thicke. Prisoners, directed by Denis Villeneuve, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2013 while A Street Cat Named Bob by James Bowen was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching About Time. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Dead or Alive 5 Ultimate or Dynasty Warriors 8.
But much more happened that day: find out below..

You can also have a look at the whole 2013 or at August 12 across the years.
