Rebecca Black's "Friday" is the latest earworm to infect the Internet:
Some background on the tween pop version of Tommy Wiseau:
Starting on Friday, March 11, 2011, the viewcount for the music video jumped from around 3,000 views to over 2.7 million on YouTube in three days. Kevin Rutherford, a columnist for Billboard magazine, wrote, "Black's video for 'Friday' is one of those rare occurrences where even the most seasoned critics of Internet culture don't know where to begin. From the singing straight out of Auto-Tuned hell to lyrics such as 'Tomorrow is Saturday / And Sunday comes afterwards / I don't want this weekend to end' and a hilariously bad rap about passing school buses, 'Friday' is something that simply must be seen and heard to be fully appreciated."
