"It's Fry-ee-day, Fry-ee-day, gotta get down on Fry-ee-day...
— Rebecca Black
, performed by Rebecca Black
, is a pop song which went viral in March of 2011. The song is about a girl celebrating the fact that it's Friday. And eating cereal. And choosing between the front and back seats of her friends' car when there's only a seat in the back open.
And listing the days of the week
, before some random guy starts rapping about passing a school bus
We'd say It Makes Sense in Context
, but it doesn't
Originally the obscure product of a Vanity Studio
called Ark Music Factory, the song became viral due to its infectious beat
, gratuitous abuse of Auto-Tune
that isn't enough to hide a mind-numbingly bland melody, and amusing lyrics, all Ark Music Factory's own fault.
The original video has been taken down from YouTube
on June-July 2011 due to a copyright claim by Rebecca Black herself. As of 16 September 2011 (a Friday, appropriately), the video is back
on Rebecca Black's Official YouTube Channel
Not to be confused with the several other things called Friday
, or "Last Friday Night" by Katy Perry
, whose video features Black.
