Poor Rebecca Black. She seems like a nice enough girl and she’s not the worst singer that ever lived, but “Friday” might be the worst music video ever created. Everything about it is ridiculous: why is there a 12-year-old driving a car filled with other pre-teens? Why does Rebecca Black have so much trouble deciding which seat to take? Is she a singing robot? Where does the random rapper factor into the equation? Is he on his way to school too?
The song itself, while catchy in a “contagious disease” kind of way, is just about as vapid as could possibly be. It may have made Rebecca Black a household name for a little while, but “Friday” deserves to go down in the annals of history as the worst music video ever made.
