2020 was a very bizarre and long year for us all. The troubles of the lockdown and the shock of it was something we would not forget for as long as we live. I agree it was a pretty stressful year yet there are some things that happened that year that just left our jaws wide dropped.
1) Kanye West ran for president and was endorsed by Chance the Rapper and Elon Musk
I remember when the hashtag trending years ago, but never did I imagine that it would happen in real life. It did not make it to the headlines but sure Kayne would go for it again ins 2024. God save us.
2) Everything was cake, and we will never trust anyone again
Remember when chefs suddenly decided to turn every object into CAKE?
That was the most strange trend I have seen. People were eating a shoe-shaped cake. It was a living nightmare and now we shall all pray for these crimes against humanity to remain a memory in the back of our minds.
3) Macaulay Culkin turned 40
The Home Alone actor in a funny tweet said: “Hey guys, wanna feel old? I just turned 40” and people were just struck by the shock like a bolt of lightning as they now realize they are getting older as well. #good’olmemories
4) People Made Memes About World War 3
This is the opening event of 2020. Literally, 2020 started with a bang, followed by the Trump administration bring up World War 3 after assassinating Iranian general Qasam Soleimani
All thanks to our dark humor, Twitter emerged with memes about it and imagining it actually happening and who would win, etc
5) Star Wars Got Its Groove Back
After The Last Jedi movie, Disney panicked and released The Rise of Skywalker with baby Yoda appearing to be the savior of the franchise oversaturating the pop culture.
Never underestimate animatronics. Especially baby Yoda.
6) Cyberpunk 2077 Was Hilariously Disappointing
Cyberpunk 2077 has been promising games for YEARS the best experience ever, even having Keanu Reeves to voice act a character and market the game.
The controversy came down when Cyberpunk was labeled after a genre but it did not follow it. It was political with characters that tend to rebel against the wealthy but the creators were accused of promoting racial stereotypes and pushing the workers to their limit plus the game was riddled with bugs and glitches that Sony removed the game and players did not get a refund.
