In that special week of February people in US were listening to Shape Of You by Ed Sheeran. Taken, directed by Pierre Morel, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2017 while The Shack by William P. Young was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching White Rabbit Project. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War III.
