It was Thursday, under the sign of Leo (see birth chart on August 20, 2015). The US president was Barack Obama (Democrat). In that special week of August people in US were listening to Can't Feel My Face by The Weeknd. Room, directed by Lenny Abrahamson, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2015 while Sick In The Head by Judd Apatow was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Love Island. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Just Dance: Disney Party 2 or Disgaea 5: Alliance of Vengeance.
