We've lived a billion years without Rebecca Black's "Friday", but now it seems we can't go on for a few hours without her. The low-budget video that's been called the worst of all time, was removed from Youtube last evening. A few hours later it was back up.
Hackers are believed to be at the bottom of the hoax. That means someone invested more time than it took to make the video, to temporarily take it down. What's more, the hack made headlines. So did news of Black's new single, Black's Miley Cyrus blowout, Black's Stephen Colbert honor, Black's spawn of copy-cats, and Black's incomprehensible chart domination.
Remember when 15 minutes was all it took? Me neither. For the next several months, prepare yourselves for a constant stream of Rebecca Black merchandise, gossip and viral videos punctuated by new stories entitled "The Rebecca Black Effect."
I have a confession I will only share with the whole wide internet. I haven't watched the video. I get the gist of why it's funny and I've read all about it, but I was hoping the phenomenon would pass before I actually had to watch it. I hoped for the same thing with the golden-voiced homeless man, but eventually i gave in to it, right around the time people stopped caring. Be honest: Is the Rebecca Black video still worth watching?
