The recent Internet craze about “vacation boobs,” or temporary breast implants that last for 24 hours, is proof that there have been some wacky trends in 2014. From hilarious dances to odd fashion trends, 2014 has seen it all. Now let’s all move on, shall we?
With the “vacation boobs,” doctors inject a saline solution directly into the breast, allowing them to fill past the confines of a traditional implant, patients are able to have the full breasts they desire. Costing between $2,000 to 4,000, these injections pose a variety of health and pure, curiosity-based questions. Where does the saline go after it seeps into your body? Do you need to pack different sizes of clothing and underwear for said vacation? Do they go down to normal size at the same time? It all just seems a little bit too extreme for the results. To each their own!
Many don’t know who “We Are Toonz” are, but they are the teen dance crew from Atlanta that released a Vine video of one of their members waving their arms and dancing in a wonderful, entertaining fashion. The video went instantly viral and so did the dance. Soon after the video was posted, Mercer beat Duke in the NCAA Tournament. One of the Mercer guards, Kevin Canevari, was so stoked about the win that he broke out the Nae-Nae and everyone went nuts. The dance has been spotted everywhere since in school cafeterias to end zones everywhere. The Nae-Nae is here to stay, unfortu-nae-nae.
Who is Felicia? She is the subject of millions of memes, tweets and posts on social media in the past year. She is the imaginary person who poses a threat, gets into your business or tries to mess with you in some way. Basically, this saying is just a super passive aggressive way to alert people that you’re still at the emotional level of a middle schooler and have “drama” with way too many people. Avoid at all costs.
Teeny-Tiny Top Hats and Spirit Hoods
Why does it seem like every time you step foot into a mall or movie theater you’re bound to spy a teen wearing a comically small hat or a Spirit Hood (those hats with ears and gloves attached)? The hats are popular amongst the anime crowd, but trace back to the ‘90s when the term “fascinator” was coined. A fascinator is a small headpiece that is worn as a formal alternative to a hat, often fashioned as a small top hat and clipped into the hair. The spirit hoods are a different story. Made popular with teens and young people in shows like Workaholics, they just seem like an easy way to pretend to be your favorite furry animal. Not that there’s anything wrong with that.
