- Colbert Bump: The video went viral after tweets from comedians such as Mike Nelson, followed by a spotlight on Tosh.0.
- Dawson Casting: Inverted. The video seems to portray Rebecca as a high schooler, despite the fact that she's thirteen. Let alone her male friend, who appears to be even younger. This did not go unnoticed.
- Ear Worm: Although "Friday" has an infamous reputation for abusing Auto-Tune and having horrible lyrics, a few reviewers have begrudgingly admitted that they found the song actually pretty catchy.
- Old Shame: Black already seems to be somewhat ashamed of her participation in Friday. Same goes for Benni Cinkle, the girl in pink/friend on the right.
- Real-Life Relative: It's Rebecca's actual family we see rushing.
- Similarly Named Works: With the movie starring Chris Tucker and Ice Cube. The connection HAS been made, of course.
