The Moment: Grabbing Rihanna's butt at the 2012 MTV Video Music Awards during a performance of the "Cockiness" remix
Why It Was Big: Had Rocky not grabbed Rih-Rih's rear end at the VMAs, he probably would have been an afterthought for most of the people watching at home. But, because he did it, he became one of the biggest stories to come out of last year's VMAs. The incident brought his name to light and introduced him to a whole new audience.
