Entertainment: Trending for 2015 National & Hawai'i

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

We want to take a look back at some of the topics that were trending this year.
Remember the White and Gold Dress?  Or was it Black and Blue?  Lots were debating and the entire internet blew up over that.  But science had the explanation.  It comes down the way the human eyes have evolved to view colour. 

How about when Kim Kardashian broke the internet.  This is the only photo we can show you with her clothes on.

But it was Katy Perry's Super Bowl sidekicks that spurred shark mania.  Perry's dancing sharks... particularly the "Left Shark" ...charmed viewers with his hilariously off-tempo moves.  It spawned lots of merchandise...including the shark suit for Halloween.

NOW FOR SOME HONORABLE MENTIONS IN HAWAII.
