Last month, Google released their Zeitgeist 2012: Year In Review video, a dramatic video that captures all of the epic moments that people searched for in 2012. Just like their Zeitgeist videos in 2010 and 2011, Google turned to Los Angeles-based creative agency Whirled, and named Whirled’s founder and creative director Scott Chan as director of the video.
Since hitting the YouTube waves on December 12, the Zeitgeist 2012 video has racked up over 13 million views. That number already easily trumps the view count from the 2010 (2.5 million) and 2011 (8.5 million) versions combined.
The successful online video was turned into a TV spot that launched nationally on December 29. The TV spot was also produced by Whirled and was spearheaded by Chan.
If you haven’t seen the video yet, watch it here. Be sure that there are some tissues nearby, just in case.
