In that special week of August people in US were listening to Despacito by Luis Fonsi & Daddy Yankee Featuring Justin Bieber. Victor Crowley, directed by Adam Green, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2017 On TV people were watching The Layover. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War III.
