"Oh awesome, man! You got one of those new computers that automatically posts everything you record on it to the Internet no matter how embarrassing it is and how much you'll regret it later! Sweet! How much did that cost you? Your dignity?"
I'm on the Internet all week. So when the weekend hits, I pull my router out of the wall and enter a two-day red wine and Valium-induced coma. I ended my workweek by putting "Friday" on Facebook, I shut down my computer and that was that.
But the Internet keeps rolling while I snooze, and a star was born. The original vid racked up over 2 million views. And here we are on Monday and Rebecca is still a trending topic on Twitter.
The web was flooded with earnest acoustic covers, remade music videos and all sorts of remixes.
Certainly it would be remiss of me to not provide at least a glimpse into all the fervor for those who didn't get their Rebecca Black fill over the weekend. So I've put together a round-up of some of the best and most bizarre "Friday" covers.
But then I think it's time to lay this one to rest. I was even inspired to write some parody lyrics of my own for a song called "Monday"…
It's Monday… Monday… I don't give a fuck on Monday…
Everybody's lookin' forward to the next thing… next thing…
Rebecca Black: "Are you sure these are the lyrics you want me to sing?"
Producer: "What are you talking about?"
Rebecca Black: "This part where I just kinda slowly explain the ordering of the days of the week?"
Producer: "That's the hook, baby! We breakin' it down for the kids! They gonna know those days!!"
