In that special week of August people in US were listening to Cheerleader by OMI. The Martian, directed by Ridley Scott, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2015 while Paper Towns by John Green was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Love Island. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Human Resource Machine or Destiny: The Taken King.
