There’s something about Google’s annual “Year in Search” videos that give you the chills every single time.

This one is no different.

Google also says we have made “trillions” of searches this year and has released stats on the most trending topics of 2014.

Robin Williams, the World Cup and Ebola were the top 3, followed by the missing Malaysia Airlines flight, the Ice Bucket Challenge and that annoying/addictive little game Flappy Bird.

The most searched person was Jennifer Lawrence, the top tech search was the iPhone 6, and the top athlete was James Rodriguez.

In case you missed any of it... here is the entire year crammed in 6.5 minutes!

In the 2014 edition of its annual video mashup of the year's top memes and memorable moments, YouTube brought together over 100 creators and enlisted the help of DJ Earworm for the soundtrack.

"Wired" has a good piece explaining the background on these Rewind videos and how this most recent one was created. There's also a behind the scenes video of the process, which kicked off back in July.
