ADVERTISE AT BOING BOING!
Ugh. And it isn’t even Friday.
if you thought that was fun, try particles99(dot)com – you’ll want to download the ‘project’ as it won’t most likely stream well.. 99 vids at once in a gridded playground
Stephen Colbert, appearing on Jimmy Fallon, did a much better version (than the original, not necessarily than this page).
Wow Awesome I cried a little bit. Thank you
Rebecca Black is the new Rickroll?
Flash Block is a beautiful thing.
I was thinking the same thing about noscript!
“Friday” is like a musical version of the Stone Soup story.
Rebecca shows up one day with a rock in her hand and goes “Hey guys, check out my musical rock!” and starts banging it on the ground. It sounds terrible, but she’s so into her performance that people stop and watch.
Someone says “I’ll do a dance about the rock” and starts dancing next to her. Someone else says “I can play my banjo to this!” and starts strumming along next to her. A guy shows up with some turntables and remixes the rock banging, while his friend runs a light show. Soon everyone is singing and dancing and making animated gifs while Rebecca keeps banging her rock on the ground.
The next morning, everyone agrees that the musical rock was the best thing they’ve every heard, and they all thank Rebecca as she walks off to the next village, proudly holding the rock aloft.
This is the new hamster dance. Complete with “lets-crash-the-browser” goodness.
Hell, I’ve been hitting reload over and over, sounds quite musical to these drone-friendly ears, especially as loops phase & drop out.
Yes, I suppose this must be why YouTube is so incredibly slow tonight. Everybody is trying to download from 9 links at once.
Finally, a scenario in which a dial-up connection could be your salvation!
This samples my own Rebecca Black remix! Today is the best day ever!
For those who may enjoy the “original remix”: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H0rgP9ySL6w
I kindof preferred this one : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ti1D9t8n0qA
That was wonderful and creepy. I haven’t even bothered to watch the real video yet but I imagine this to be a near-literal interpretation of the feelings that I would have if I did. Thank you.
Timothy Leary is NOT dead!!! Or, I’m having a Flashfuckingback.
So it’s a home made YTMND?
Why you dissin’ these immortal lyrics?
Fun, fun, fun, fun
Lookinâ€™ forward to the weekend
Yesterday was Thursday, Thursday
Today i-is Friday, Friday (Partyinâ€™)

I just don’t get why anyone would spend time dissing that song. I understand if it’s not your cup of tea. It’s certainly not mine. But why take the time to lampoon it? What is the fascination?
I don’t get it.
She’s inane, and her daddy paid someone to create it.
Why has her video become an internet snarkfest?
Nice. It BSOD’d my work computer.

The folks behind Yuri's Night, an annual global space party that celebrates peace through space exploration, are looking for your creative help to design an awesome new ad campaign to get people to care about space.
