Do you know “fad”, which comes and goes quickly?
In the late 1970s, Erno Rubik, a professor was looking for a creative way to teach his students about 3D objects. He invented a six-color plastic object that would be called the Rubik’s Cube(魔方). The goal was to get each side of the cube a different color. It was very challenging. It took a few years for the toy to become popular, but then suddenly, in 1982, it seemed everyone had one. People bought over a hundred million of the toys. There were 50 books available that year offering solutions(解决办法). Then, just as suddenly as the craze (风尚) started, it ended. By 1983, people were not interested in the Rubik’s Cube any more, perhaps because so many people already had one in their home.
In 2012, a South Korean musician named Psy released a song called “ Gangnam (江南) Style.” The music video shows Psy pretending (假装) to horse-ride while he is dancing. In six months, it became the first Youtube (一视频网站) video ever to reach a billion views (观看). Six months after that, it went on to reach two billion views. The song and video started a worldwide dance craze. “Gangnam Style” had a huge influence on world popular culture.
