Wasn't quite sure where to post this... but I feel it's too amazing to go unnoticed. This girl is apart of a label called Ark that basically accepts money from crazy parents to put their teen in an original music video.

This is just...kdjgl;asdjg. I guess Daniel Tosh posted the video on his site and it went from having 4,000 views on Saturday to over 800,000. She's also trending on Twitter.

You're welcome.

It's amazing, isn't it? I woke up this morning and I saw tweets about Rebecca Black and I was so confused! But then I found this gem and I'm so glad I did. I love how she sings the word "Friday."

"Yesterday was Thursday, today is Friday, tomorrow is Saturday and Sunday comes afterward." Fridays are amazing now!

My son introduced me to this person yesterday. I was not impressed. He sees it as comedic gold. He's walking around the house singing it to annoy me. "Gotta get down on Friiiiday!"

I'm so glad I now know that she's got this and you got this.


ETA: I'm so glad someone else took time to make gifs of that awkward girl on her right side. It's priceless. I have a whole story written in my head about her where she is so excited to be in the video but cries on the way home because she doesn't think she danced right in it. Also, are the extras her friends? Like you pay for a video and then your friends get to star in it with you? And who wants to bet that they treat you like the superstar you are?

Director: Wow, Rebecca, you're a real natural!Britney has nothing on you! ( Turns to parents) Did you know your daughter was a star?

Rebecca and the girls and parents: gigglegigglegiggle

There was a brief moment when the Friday Song had its own Wiki entry:


Friday (Song) is The debut of talented up and coming “artist” and civil rights activist Rebecca Black. “Friday” addresses the problems encountered by America’s youth on a day-to-day basis. Topics range from morning routines to civil rights issues reminiscent of Rosa Parks. Black, within the first minute of the song is relegated to the back seat of an overcrowded Chrysler coupe. Her choice to not wear a seatbelt is an allegory for Black’s rebellion against the prejudiced mores of society. In this vein Rebecca Black can be thought of as a modern day civil rights crusader, showing the ability of the landed nobility identify with the struggle of the proletariat.

Rebecca Black explores new choreographic styles with her back up dancers the “Fraaans.”

This is pretty much my favorite thing ever. I spent all of yesterday watching every single video I could find, including following the rabbit hole on youtube to find such brilliant things as CJ ( I just call her CJ now) singing at a county fair.

The launch party is the most hilarious, sickening, depressing, genius thing to ever happen.

BTW: I think if they play their cards right, Rebecca Black could end up having a career. She's cute. She just needs to pretend that she thinks it sucks too and laughs along with us. What's scary is that I've watched Friday so many times that I'm almost in love with the song. I can't get it out of my head!!!

Whappo
03-15-2011, 07:08 PM
Absolutely love how CJ Fam has effectively merged most of Britney's post-debut output into a single song and then given it all a JonBenet sheen.

BTW, if you sing Friday in the shower and really go for it before you hit the chorus ("WHICH SEAT WILL I TAAAAAAAAKE?") you might start drowning. Not that I'd know or anything.

I kind of feel bad for these kids in a way. I'd hate to be the subject of internet fodder, with thousands of people making fun of me and becoming the Meme of the Week. I mean, do they know how awful they are or do they get convinced by their parents and Flusher that they are actually great talents?

Hannah.

I don't feel bad at all! Rebecca Black just discovered the best marketing tool ever! She could make a career out of this. She'll be filthyfuckingrich!

Adam
03-16-2011, 04:32 AM
I feel bad for them, but she's 13. It's not like it's her life experiences poured into song. Someone wrote it for her. So it's not like it reflects on her. Her voice isn't terrible and she's pretty. I still say that if they are smart ( her family), they will spin this in her favor by laughing along and shrugging it off. People would give her props and girl could end up with a career. They need to use this. Bad publicity is good publicity, blah blah blah.

I'm dying at all of the blogs with comments like "Where are these girls coming from?????"

I know we talked a little about CJ FAM!! on here, but have any of you guys seen the other videos? There are dozens of them. Here are just some of my favorites. I love how almost every single one has either "ARK PRODUCTIONS!" at the beginning, or the Ark guys in it (sometimes it's "Flusher," and other times it's the other guy, Clarence Jay. And the videos seem to have some of the same actors in them too.

Hell yes! As a matter of fact, I used to cry because my parents wouldn't move to Florida and get me onto the Mickey Mouse Club or KIDS INCORPORATED ( my favorite show of all-time). I had The Party's debut album, for crying out loud. So yes, I would've died for it.

I think she should be proud. How cool to be in a video with your own song! And she's actually good in the video, imo. And for real, bad bad lyrics, but the melody WILL NOT LEAVE MY BRAIN!

Deedee! Damon! I forgot their names! I think the redhead's name was Chase. I did my hair like him a couple times (somewhere between 6-9 years-old) - once for Halloween (I went as a "punk rocker") and at least once for a normal school day. He used to comb-spike it up on both sides;l I'm pretty sure I got made fun of for it.

I have ALL their albums, even the ones that came out way after they stopped being popular (and by popular, I mean recognizable by the MMC crowd). I have autographs - lots! I met them in Tower Records and wore my special shirt with the sheer sleeves (http://www.etsy.com/listing/37951205/vintage-80s-90s-rainbow-polka-dots-shirt).

Apparently, she did an interview (http://www.thedailybeast.com/blogs-and-stories/2011-03-17/rebecca-black-friday-and-cyberbullying/#). She sounds nice. It's too bad her mother had a spare $2,000 for this shit, and that this record company totally took advantage of her. And we're all big bullies.

She was on GMA this morning. WHUT.

http://abcnews.go.com/Entertainment/gma-vote-rebecca-blacks-friday-deserve-criticism/story?id=13164650


"At first, when I first saw all these nasty comments, I did cry," said Black. "I felt like this was my fault. And I shouldn't have done this, and this is all because of me. And now I don't feel that way."

According to Black, the worst comment said, "I hope you cut yourself, and I hope you get an eating disorder so you'll look pretty. And I hope you go cut and die."

Can you imagine a Rebecca Black ALBUM? I bet you it's coming.

Or maybe she can be cool and do an iTunes concept EP with a song for each day of the week. I'm guessing "Monday" would be highly angsty. The weekend will be over! Back to school! :(

The green jacket guy is hot. I also like the little guy that was in the backseat in the video, when she didn't know which seat to take. I'd take a backseat with him any day. (And then get arrested for statutory?)

But seriously... acoustic Friday is the weirdest, trippiest thing I've ever seen. And I listen to The Residents! Are those kids acting, or just naturally retarded? What is with green jacket guy's faggy hip hop hand gestures? Does anyone actually think this is cool? Poor off-key, nasal Rebecca... she doesn't deserve all this attention. I'm pretty sure this will make her an alcoholic.

Adam
03-18-2011, 10:18 PM
All of the kids on the couch are Ark artists. It's so weird. Did they think that maybe the other kids would get some recognition? I can hear the other kids now...

"Mommy! It's not fair!"

"Honey, it's because her song isn't good and your is. You should be happy about that"

" Mommy, I want a bad song so I can be famous like her!!!"

And actually, on GMA, she sang the national anthem and didn't sound nasal at all. I think it's the suckitude of the song that makes her sound bad. I can't imagine anyone sounding good singing it. And I think the pitchiness was due in part to the producer changing around the chords on the piano to try and give it more "depth". Umh. Fail.

I was under the impression that being on the Ark roster cost 20,000 and was the playground of the rich. However, Rebecca's mom paid 2,000 after a casting call and, with no reason to assume other than the bit of interview in GMA where they talk to her mother in their home, they don't appear to be a wealthy family. Actually, looks like a regular middle class single mom in the 'burbs.

Rebecca's Future:

First, she'll learn piano, then spend her teen years playing in gay bars. Then, she'll start a crappy hair metal band and release one album that promptly tanks. Then, she'll re-evaluate her musical self, get back to the acoustic piano, and release an album of sweepingly melodic, intensely personal songs. She'll spend the next few years putting out brilliant, iconoclastic music, garnering a deranged cult following along the way. Then, after several attempts that end badly (thereby giving her song material), she'll complete her life by giving birth to a precious baby girl.

Soon after, her music will go to shit.

You never know, she may very well turn into the next Tori or Alanis. Or just disappear within the next 15 minutes. ;)

Last night, my roommate fed the external audio output into the internal (I think?) of his laptop and put on the "Friday" video on loop. He then went onto Chatroulette (while I watched) and played with an Ernie puppet dancing to the song on the screen. There were so many people covering their faces and in stitches laughing, while others started raising the roof and dancing.

When I was 13, my life was nothing like Rebecca Black's. I wore no make-up, knew no boys with cool cars, and disliked being the center of attention. #wallflower

Me too. And if I had tried to do anything like that my brother would have put the kibosh on it by mercilessly making fun of me. And that's a good thing. He did lead me down the path of Tool.

Teen YouTube sensation Rebecca Black is taking that new famedom all the way to the bank. The word now is that the "Friday" viral video sensation is in the studio working on an album for 2012. Thanks to the Ark Music Factory, Ryan Seacrest, and a plug from “The X Factor's” Simon Cowell, the 13-year-old Orange County, Calif., teen is enjoying her moment in fame.

Just watched Leno. Rebecca Black was on and said she was donating the money made from the song to Japan.
I thought to myself how kick ass it is, karmically, that a girl being humiliated on youtube can turn all that negativity on its head.. into something undeniably awesome. Would I have done the same thing? I'd like to hope I would.
I assume its just her royalties.

Who knew Bob Dylan wrote Friday? (http://uncyclopedia.wikia.com/wiki/Friday_(song)) ;l ;l ;l ;l


The extraordinary line "7:45, drivin' on the highway. Cruisin' so fast, I want time to fly". is typical of Dylan's writing. In fourteen words he summarizes both the 1961 Freedom Rides, in which blacks rode buses to desegregate interstate transport throughout the Southern states, and the "flying" of the children of Birmingham, who were both propelled through the air by firehoses during their marches in 1963 and then flew against walls and desks when several of them were blown up in the church bombing mentioned above (the bomb exploded, of course, at 7:45 in the morning).

"Rebecca Black and her friends stand up in a fast-moving car and raise their fists in a black power salute, a homage to activists who stood up for their rights in the tumultuous 1960s. A full-moon, symbolic of the fertility of social movements and of Rebecca Black herself, shines above Black's shoulder."

Some of the lyrics:


Makin' positive music
Makin' it good music
Fun, fun, and clean
Yeah, you can try to do it, too
If you come to my crew
If you wanna know what I do

I keep on hearin' everybody
Calling me a pedophile
Calling me fat, fat, fat, fat Usher
I keep on hearin' people scream
People trying to break me
But this is making me stronger
Hey, listen to my story

Say what you wanna say
You can keep on talking about me

Amazing.
