The Internet tribute to 2012 delivers flashes from the year’s most iconic events and people, the ones we’ll still be talking about or reminding ourselves of in later days. Psy, Honey Boo Boo, Higgs Boson, Felix Baumbgartner, Kony 2012, Pussy Riot, SpaceX, Hurricane Sandy, Mars Rover, Gabby Douglas, Michael Phelps, Malala Yousufzai, they are all in here somewhere. The awesomely produced 2:46 video also gives the year's biggest political stories worldwide, from President Obama’s re-election to Syria’s civil war to the perpetual Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

It’s all here, beginning with Felix Baumbgartener’s jump into space and ending with him falling to his knees back on Earth. And the video’s sum result is to convince you that the world’s getting smaller through the Internet.

Jump in.
