Wow, I forgot about the Franco Instagram incident. It's crazy to think that his career initially survived it. These days, it would kill most people's careers.

Take me back to April 3, 2014

Let's take a stroll down memory lane.

The date is April 3, 2014, and it's a Thursday. Anyone born today will have the star sign Aries. The summer of 2014 is drawing closer, and temperatures have started to rise.

In America, the song "Happy" by Pharrell Williams is at the top of the singles charts, while "I Got U" by Duke Dumont featuring Jax Jones is the number-one song in the UK. Barack Obama is the President of the United States, and the movie Noah is at the top of the box office. David Cameron is the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom.

On television, people are watching popular shows such as "Glee", "Suits", "Line of Duty", and "House of Cards". Video rental stores such as Blockbuster are continuing to close their doors at the moment. Sadly, it seems as though they will be unable to compete with online streaming services such as Netflix and Hulu. A social networking website called Vine is extremely popular at the moment.

It is 2014, so the music charts are being dominated by artists such as Pharrell Williams, Katy Perry, John Legend, Iggy Azalea, Meghan Trainor, Lorde and Jason Derulo. People have started using the Internet slang phrase "sliding into your DMs" to describe the act of sending someone a private message. If you were to travel back to this day, notable figures such as Peaches Geldof, The Ultimate Warrior, Bob Hoskins, and Skye McCole Bartusiak would all still be alive.

People are playing video games such as "ARMA 3", "FIFA 14", "Battlefield 4", and "Dead Rising 3". Children and teenagers are watching television shows such as "Team Umizoomi", "Lab Rats: Bionic Island", "Sam & Cat", and "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.". Children are playing with toys such as Thomas and Friends toys, Justin Bieber Rockin' Tour Bus, Big Hugs Elmo, and the PlayStation 4.
