A Look Back on 2012 Through YouTube

I came across this emotional video on Mashable. Two days ago, Jean-Louis Nguyen posted this video montage on his YouTube Channel. Set to the song of “The Might Rio Grande” by This Will Destroy You, it includes moments of happiness and sadness. He put together clips of important and impacting events like Hurricane Sandy, the London Olympics, the suicide of Amanda Todd and many more that occurred in 2012.

This video doesn’t seem any more appropriate to surface the web than now, considering all the speculation the world is coming to end December 21, according to the Mayan calendar.

Nguyen says of the video, “It was a year of breakthroughs, adversity, accomplishments. And the web shared all of it. From the highest sky-dive to the fastest running man, a first vote or last mission, joys and tragedies, grumpy cats and flash mobs, from silly to serious; whatever it is that we shared in 2012, here is a compilation.”

He encourages viewers to share his video and it already has over 200,000 views. When watching this video, I felt emotions ranging from smiley to solemn in a matter of seconds. I think the year of 2012 (or most of it) was truly captured in this montage.

What was your most memorable moment of 2012?
