The fame of The Black Eyed Peas
This great band had a lot of hits in 2009 such as “I Gotta Feeling” or “Boom Boom Pow” and everybody was singing them. Their songs made history and even today they are still famous and listened to all over the world.

Playing video games
Believe it or not, 10 years ago people were playing video games in the same room on a single console. It was beneficial for them because they could combine the interaction with the fun of the game. But today technology has advanced and people spend a lot of time alone playing games online.
Donating to unworthy causes
Nowadays, people who want to make money create certain unworthy or fake causes such as “saving Matt Damon from Mars” or “Making anti-zombie soap” and the folks interested in it could donate. But in 2009 things were different. People were earning their money in other ways and donations were for real causes.
Different kinds of movies
A decade ago only some of the movies featured superheroes, but now, more and more movies are about all kinds of mutants with weird latex costumes. Have you noticed that? Nevertheless, Iron Man was the one that appeared in 2008 and became a trendsetter.
