2015 M Awards: Best Offbeat Moment

jtThere were several offbeat moments this year, but when Justin Timberlake politely corrected a person on Twitter who called him a bandwagon fan using #WigSnatch the resulting reactions were epic.  Everyone began using #WigSnatch in their own tweets and everyday jargon.  T-shirts were made and we were all introduced to the best offbeat moment we have seen in a long time.
