If you've been on a no-media diet for the past 12 months, two mash-up clips can catch you up - and all you'll need is about 15 minutes.
Thanks to the effort of Sleepy Skunk and DJ Earworm, 2013's top songs and films have been condensed into absorbing videos - even if you've been gorging on all the pop culture this year has had to offer, we bet these two clips will get you to see and hear your favorites in a new light.
Sleepy Skunk used trailers from movies like "12 Years A Slave," "The World's End" "The Fifth Estate" and "The Purge" to create a surprisingly moving six-minute video that seamlessly encompasses some of the themes of this year's cinema. Watch out for the Paul Walker sighting in "Fast & Furious 6" about two minutes in:
DJ Earworm narrowed down his video's contenders by choosing the top 25 hits of the year in the U.S., a list that includes Daft Punk's "Get Lucky," Lorde's "Royals," Rihanna's "Stay," Justin Timberlake's "Mirrors" and Miley Cyrus' "We Can't Stop" and "Wrecking Ball."
