COMPLEX.COM Presents… “The 50 BIGGEST STORIES Of 2012… In GIFs”

The 50 Biggest Stories of 2012, In GIFs

While we could probably say this about every year since forever, 2012 has been crazy. Legit crazy. First of all, we lived through the last date in our calendar that will ever feature three repeating numbers (12/12/12). Second, 2012 was when the Mayans said we would all die (that could still happen this Friday). Third, fourth, and fifth, we re-elected a president, endured an insane hurricane, and hovered on the edge of a metaphorical cliff that could cost us all a lot of money and awesome benefits. And let’s not forget how we somehow made it through the Jelena breakup (and reunification…and breakup). 

Although Complex loves to read and watch the news, we feel there’s an even better, faster, more efficient way to spread the word: GIFs. With GIFs, you get the picture and the movement you would while watching CNN or MSNBC without the annoying blather. You don’t have to waste minutes of your life reading information you’re likely to forget in five seconds anyway, and with some of these little packages of goodness, you even get a laugh. What’s not to love?

With that in mind, we bring you The 50 Biggest Stories of 2012, In GIFs, so you can relive the best, the worst, and the most cringe-inducing moments of the last 12 months. Now you won’t have any excuse for thinking that Pussy Riot was a porno.

Check Out The 2013 PORSHE CAYMAN

2013 Porsche CaymanGerman auto maker Porsche never disappoints with their new year models, and the 2013 Porsche Cayman shows exactly what we are talking about.

Borrowing plenty of aesthetic appeal from the Boxster, the new year Cayman model sports a handful of exterior improvements including the double stack headlights, larger side scoops, and the integrated rear spoiler. Of course Porsche is more about the driving experience than anything, which is why this little beast has been packed with a boxer motor pumping out 275 horsepower paired with 213 lb-ft of torque making for a 5 second zero to sixty time. Not fast enough for you? No problem. The Porsche Cayman S puts down a whopping 325 ponies and 272 lb-ft of torque which helps you get to sixty at a blazing fast 4.4 seconds. The base will start around $52,600, while the S will set you back about $64,750.  (Via…)

The Classic AIR JORDAN XI “BRED/PLAYOFFS” 2012 RETRO, Expected to drop on December 21, 2012…





Having already seen a bevy of Bernhard Willhelm x Camper boots in the past, Spring/Summer 2012 brings an array of new colors to choose from. Utilizing the familiar ziz-zag soles we’ve come to expect from the collaboration, this season finds more solid patterns, while they do manage to slip in a bit of orange camouflage that recalls a past offering. If older models are any indication, these boots will retail in the $340 USD range, with availability through finer boutiques worldwide.
