This past Sunday, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge swept into New York City for a whirlwind three-day trip. They met Jay-Z, Beyonce and LeBron James at a Brooklyn Nets versus Cleveland Cavaliers Basketball game in Brooklyn.

As we look to finish up the year and put 2013 behind us, it's always fun to reflect back on what made it all so memorable. Since year-end lists are one of the best parts of the season, I thought I'd do my own version: The top ten most memorable marketing moments of 2013.
