Second-by-Second Review of “Friday” by Rebecca Black

This is what music has come to, readers. Enjoy! Scroll down past the video to get my thoughts and synopsis of this song.

0:00 starts with a desk calendar featuring almost-familiar quotes for each weekday. Pencil video effect, nice touch.
0:03 I know watching this is a gigantic mistake.
0:11 clicked on the X to close annoying Mazda advertisement at the bottom of the screen.
0:12 the music video starts at midnight according to her clock. Hey Rebecca, 1993 called and they want their clock back.
0:30 so many words have been said. None have rhymed.
0:33 four friends show up in a convertible. Sweet. Now she can arrive at school in style.
0:36 slow motion waving. Slow motion peace sign.
0:42 she asks which seat she can take. Well, there’s 4 people and 5 seats. Can anyone say, backseat middle bump?
0:47 average looking friends “getting down” to chorus of song.
0:56 Ten and two, young man, ten and two.
1:00 backseat boy taps hand on car’s side, clearly off beat.
1:06 fun, fun, fun, fun. Wow, lots of fun.
1:08 sorta wishing I clicked on that Mazda ad.
1:10 evidently we don’t get to see the “fun” at school. Or what she ate for dinner. It’s already 7:45 and their unsafely driving around town with NO SEATBELTS ON! Billy Ray Cyrus would be proud.
1:10 car tires clearly not moving.
1:12 car dancing. I love car dancing. It’s almost as fun as car eating or car talking on the phone.
1:17 sprinkler dance: fail.
1:21 pink dress girl gets a shout out. “my friend is on my right.” Sorry other 3 girls in car. Maybe you’ll get a credit in her album liners.
1:24 car tires. Still not moving.
1:32 is she about to cry?
1:35 she still doesn’t know which seat to take. Listen, you’re already in the middle, just accept it and move on.
1:38 party time. Rebecca nearly clips friend when opening car door.
1:43 evidence for why there were at least 3 cars still there the next morning. This is not the year 3000! Headlights don’t turn themselves off, dorkwads.
1:47 is she getting more nasally? Is that possible?
1:51 pizza has arrived, party is moving indoors.
2:02 my favorite dance move she does: hands out, palms facing forward. Slight knee bend and lurch forward. Love it.
2:05 back to desk calendar and pencil video effect.
2:13 throughout the whole song I noticed her stellar grammar. Then this? How dare you, Rebecca. BTW, dropping the word “are” doesn’t make you street, Becc-dog! It doesn’t make you street. *sniff*
2:23 who knew learning the days of the week could be so educational and at the same time, so entertaining?
2:30 what is happening? Who is this?
2:41 why does seeing a school bus excite him?
2:46 can’t he sell drugs on weekdays, too?
2:49 evidently the party never went indoors like they led us to believe. Hollywood, uuuggghhhh.
2:58 poor tree. How long must it endure this song being replayed while shooting this video with no real way to retaliate? I miss the Lord of the Ring trees. They were awesome and they would’ve made things right.
3:10 ask the tree if it’s having “fun, fun, fun, fun.”
3:23 he must’ve caught up to the bus, he looks happy.
3:33 is it too late to click on the Mazda advertisement?
3:42 deep breaths. Deep breaths. How can I make up these 4 minutes? And the 30 minutes I spent writing this? UUUUGGGGGGHHHHHHHH

  1. karen the vid to me since i didn’t know what people were talking about.
    i stopped at 1 min into the vid. cried for my 1 min of life to come back. wiped up the blood dripping from my ears and shook my finger while cursing at the girl in the vid for causing me to now hate fridays!
    i like your play-by-play very intuitive.
