Neobychainye priklyucheniya mistera Vesta v strane bolshevikov, directed by Lev Kuleshov, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2012 while Drift by Rachel Maddow was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Roomies. If you liked videogames you were probably playing F1 2012 or 99 Levels to Hell.
