Yesterday was Thursday. Today is Friday…Tomorrow is Saturday, and Sunday comes afterwards.
Rebecca Black did myself and any other bloggers in the world who post on Friday’s the biggest favor in the world. I know we already posted it, but for those of you that haven’t seen or heard yet (probably only you, mom), here is the new song stuck in everyone’s head…
Apparently Rebecca Black’s mother paid a company called Ark something or other $2,000 to make this video of her precious little Beck’s. She probably wasn’t quite rich and outlandish enough to get her daughter on Sweet 16 but figured two grand so her tone deaf little princess can make a music video was good enough to buy her daughters love for another year. Either way, Rebecca Black’s hit single “Friday” has already sold more than 2,000,000 copies on iTunes. Yes. That is TWO MILLION. In about a weeks time. When a 15 year old white girl with $2,000 can’t become a superstar in a weeks time with a catchy backing track, autotone, and ridiculously horrible lyrics, I will start listening to mainstream music again and make all of the laxbros I drive to practice who only know one song off of Abbey Road a lot happier. Que puedo decir….
I feel like the Leprechaun trailer would have been a lead into her music video.
I could see them blending perfectly together:
“It’s out…It’s out of the crate…ooooooOOOooooo…Yeeahhhheahyeahhhhhhh…7am waking up in the morning gotta be fresh gotta go downstairs.”
After all, she kind of sounds a bit Irish and leprechauny as she shrieks “Frieedeey.” She sounds like she probably pronounces things like my old elementary school art teacher. You know, those people who say “George WARSHington” and “Tuesdee.” There’s a reason Mrs. Meggenhoffen taught my nine year old self art and didn’t become a famous recording artist, Rebecca.
There is so much to say about this video. I’ll let some fun things other people made on the internet do some of the talking for a bit.
Rebecca’s poor friends just aren’t background dancer material in music videos. I’m wondering if Rebecca’s mother tipped the producers at Ark a bit to instruct the other girls in the video to look ridiculous in their movement so that some attention would be taken off of the lack of singing ability throughout the track.
Here’s just some classic funny work done in most likely Microsoft Paint.
And this here may be the best of everything:
Honestly. Rebecca. The car in your music video has 5 seats. You have 4 friends in the car already. That leaves only 1 seat left for you to have. I know you probably haven’t covered those types of word problems yet in your pre-algebra class, but this really shouldn’t be that difficult of a decision for you…
Take the back seat, Rebecca. Take the back seat.
Butler just won again and is going to the Elite 8. Congrats to my hometown bulldogs. Here’s a great portion of an interview from the incredible Shelvin Mack about a conversation he had with Pittsburgh Panther Gilbert Brown in Butler’s last game as Brown was approaching the foul line:
IU Lax has 3 games this weekend. We got some new socks and shooting shirts and stuff that will hopefully help us not only win, but (also) win in style. Speaking of winning with style, my man Adam knows how to take some good news in stride…
Act like you’ve been there before, Adam. I’ve never seen a grown man frightened so much by some confetti before.
