Coffee cup controversy... and other trends of the week

The emotional valedictory address that went viral in New Zealand, new photos to emerge of "man's best friend," and the plain red Starbucks coffee cups that prompted talk of a coffee shop boycott by those who wanted more christian imagery on them for Christmas.

Those stories and more in BBC Trending's round-up of trends of the week. And you can also listen to our radio programme here.

Produced by Jonathan Griffin.
