    \/ Lyrics \/
    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    Someone please explain pop culture to me. HOW is this popular?

    1.The bus stop sign is comp'd in. If the awful font on the sign (thanks for pointing this out joe ligo) isnt the dead giveaway, then maybe the corkboard pole the sign is on might help you. Nevermind it moves the WRONG way was the camera zooms in on Rebecca.
    2. Im all excited to see her get on the bus and then her "frand" with a convertable drives up and debates where to sit. somehow she misses the fact that standard cars seat 5 people (legally) and the only seat left is logically the one in the back middle, next the the kid with the priceless expression at :38. His expression ALMOST makes up for the fact she never gets on the BUS.
    3.What kinda of "partying" do middle schoolers do?
    4.The green screen at 1:11 is completely inexcusable. first of all the street lamps do not demish with size, they simply follow a straight, diagonal path BEHIND HER. Second, when they zoom in on her face the moon of all things, gets bigger? What on earth is going on there?
    Also on a related note, im glad they dont end up recking the car. sheesh.
    5. So the girl on the left? Shes not a friend? ahem sorry, "frand".
    6. It looks like by the time she gets to the party on friday its way past her bed time lol
    7.From 2:05 to 2:31 we have a special effects show that might give you a seizure if you arent careful, and if that isnt enough he metally crippling lyrics might.
    8. I have no words about the 30+ year old man who is coming to pick her up.

    Closing comments: Ive never heard a robot talk about fun and partying so much. At least a robot could have had more inspired lyrics if not more personality.

    Oh god...

    She sounds like Fran Drescher's droppings.

    And the rhyming makes Insane Clown Posse sound good.

    Music nowadays is anything with the same electronic beat in the background and a chorus that repeats the same set of words over and over again.

    alanjohn check ur pm
    Just checked the bus stop sign, couldn't really see the fake untill the last second...
    it moves!!!
    IT MOVES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    And at the greenscreen scenes, at the close-up, you can clearly see a greenscreen was used, because the blonde's hairs have a green outline

    Thanks for pointing it out.
    worst clip ever.
    BUT!
    The quality matches the song.

    OMG Best song eva!!!1111!!!

    Seriously though, she sounds like a fucking robot at some parts... As much as I hate Justin Bieber, if I had to choose between him or this robot to listen to music, it would have to be JB

    I love this song. Its just so bad its unreal.
    This song is not popular, its gotten no radio airtime (to my knowledge). Its just gone viral through its sheer awesomeness. Check out the rest of the vids on that account. Its hilarious.

    Wow....
    I bet it took her 5-10 minutes to come up with those lyrics.

    My friend showed me this. At 1:38 some dude coughs. Read it in the comments and it's absolutely true. But it's worse than Friday and the production values are shitty. I'm pretty sure I could make a better sounding song on my iPad. And I don't even have an iPad.

    That song right there is fake, it's not by her.
    Notice the missing "c" in the video title, and on iTunes.

    Fake one, linked by video:
    http://itunes.apple.com/us/artist/rebeca-black/id426769029

    Real:
    http://itunes.apple.com/us/artist/rebecca-black/id426285675




    But anyways, both songs are absolutely horrible(especially the music video), why do people need to post them everywhere? Every place I go online has people discussing them, it's so annoying.

    I seriously laugh out loud everytime I see/hear this...

    Btw, I think her producer is a genius.

    1. Make a song with catchy tune but terrible lyrics.
    2. Video goes viral. Free publicity!
    3. ????
    4. Profit!!!

    ok so

    my first time watching this was earlier thursday, where i thoroughly saddened at the lyrics, the girl, the song, the video, the pretty much everything.

    Just now, i skipped to the part where she says her friend is on her right, listened 5 more seconds until she said kickin in the front seat, then, i shit you not, my head began to tingle in a most unpleasant way, and i had to pause the video and scream out loud to make it go away.

    like actually? wtf is this shit

    EDIT: OMFG 5 MIN LATER AND MY HEAD STILL WANTS TO EXPLODE FROM JUST THINKING ABOUT IT.

    Notice how she doesn't actually mention a car in the song, meaning the "friends" she "sees" are on the aforementioned bus. And notice how the only options are a front seat and a back seat, meaning the bus only has two rows of seats. Meaning, little Rebecca rides the short bus to school.

    ...which would explain the intelligence level of the lyrics.
