The end of 2018 is almost upon us, and with that the creatives over at VOX have just shared a digestible five minute video looking back on the past 12 months.

From some of the year’s most viral hits, such as the “Laurel vs. Yanny” debate and the “In My Feelings” dance craze, to the more tragic events, the video posted above focuses on the biggest headlines that drove 2018. Key moments also included are Prince William and Meghan Markle’s wedding, the shredding of Banksy’s Girl With a Balloon, Kim Jong Un meeting with President Donald Trump, Facebook’s Cambridge Analytica scandal, the Me Too movement, and France’s 2018 World Cup Win. A short in memoriam section paying tribute to Mac Miller, Stephen Hawking, Stan Lee, Anthony Bourdain, and more that we’ve lost has also been added.
