Greetings From Year's End

Google's produced its much-awaited 2012 Zeitgeist roundup video recapping crucial moments in social and in the global village. Relive Felix Baumgartner's momentum leap from space (brought to you by Red Bull!) and the craze that was, and still is, Gangnam Style. The year went by fast, but this video takes it slow, lingering over the details... just the way we like it.

Hoping to cash in on the nostalgia before it's too late, Facebook's launched a custom Year in Review feature for users. If the GOOG's video is too big-picture for you, you can always relive your greatest moments... as dictated by Zuck.

And in what can only be considered a weird nod to user engagement, Publicis Groupe's own Maurice Levy's released a video of his Digital Wishes for 2013. Every click on the video produces an unexpected result. An annual roundup of a conglomerate's outlook for '13 was never so... manipulable? Skip ahead, change the volume, or play with video quality while Levy loosens his tie... without ever actually loosening it.
